    Environmental aspects

    The Bank reviewed the environmental and social capacity of the Promoter, including its organisation, processes and procedures, and deemed them to be good. Based on the information available, the programme is expected to have minor negative residual impacts and thus is acceptable for Bank financing from an environmental and social perspective. The Promoter undertakes to implement the project in accordance with the EIB's Environmental and Social Standards and in compliance with the national environmental legislation. Furthermore the programme does not entail components with significant, negative environmental and/or social impacts or requiring physical resettlement and/or impact on indigenous people in accordance with undertakings committed to under the Framework Loan 2020-0823. The Promoter undertakes not to allocate the Bank's funds to any components of the programme that require an environmental and social management plan (ESMP) before this has been sent for review to the satisfaction of the Bank.


    The concession to the Promoter was awarded in a transparent and internationally competitive manner, the programme is not subject to public procurement rules. The procurement procedures followed by the Promoter are suitable for the project and satisfactory to the EIB.
