Investments in fixed telecommunications projects (mainly civil works for urban underground cable installations) do not fall under the Annexes of Directive 2014/52/EU amending the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive 2011/92/EU. The related works have normally limited residual environmental effects as the trenching works are typically carried out alongside roads or consist of overhead cabling on existing poles. If required, any environmental impact about the project, including the CO2 footprint, will be assessed during the appraisal.
The Bank will require the Promoter to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the project have been tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation, directive 2014/23/EU / 2014/25/EU, where applicable, as well as Directive 92/13/EEC as interpreted by the Court of Justice of the EU, with publication of tender notices in the EU Official Journal, as and where required.
