    Environmental aspects

    This operation is intended to generate environmental benefits by supporting projects that help mitigate climate change, contribute to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and support transition to circular economy. The EIB will assess the capacity and procedures of the financial intermediary (FI) to ensure compliance with national and European environmental and biodiversity regulations as well as their capacity to support the EIB's public disclosure policy, which aims to facilitate access by the public to environmentally-relevant information.


    The Bank will require the FI to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the projects shall be tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation (Directives 2014/23/EU, 2014/24/EU and 2014/25/EU, where applicable, as well as Directives 89/665/EEC and 92/13/EEC) as interpreted by the Court of Justice of the EU, with the publication of tender notices in the Official Journal of the European Union, as and where required.
