The EIB will ensure that the Fund's operational guidelines comply with its social and environmental standards.
The Fund has been assessed by EIB as investing only in private companies not being subject to EU rules on public procurement or concessions. However, if after the appraisal, the EIB were to conclude that the Fund invests also in projects subject to EU public procurement legislation, then the Bank would require the fund manager to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the projects financed by the Fund will be done in accordance with the Bank's Guide to Procurement.
