Inside the EU, the project components would be categorised under Annex II and therefore would be subject to environmental screening to define if an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) would be required according to the relevant competent authority. The environmental and social aspects of the project will be assessed during the appraisal to ensure adherence to its standards. Climate change aspects will also be examined during the appraisal.
The promoter will have to ensure that implementation of the project will be done in accordance with EIB's Guide to Procurement.
