    Environmental aspects

    If located in Europe, the implementation of banking IT systems would not be covered by the EIA directive 2011/92/EU. In addition, the project activities are expected to be carried out in existing facilities that are already used for the same purposes and that are not expected to change their scope due to the project.


    The promoters of the individual projects under the Programme have been assessed by the EIB as being private companies not operating in the utilities sector and not having a status of a contracting entity, thus not being subject to rules on public procurement.


    Approved - 20/10/2022


    Before financing approval by the Board of Directors, and before loan signature, projects are under appraisal and negotiation. The information and data provided on this page are therefore indicative.
    They are provided for transparency purposes only and cannot be considered to represent official EIB policy (see also the Explanatory notes).
