Environmental aspects

Most of the current and future projects do not fall under the EIA Directive 85/337/EC, as amended, in which case the projects would not be subject to an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). If an underlying investment would be subject to an EIA, the fund manager will be required to obtain the non-technical summary of it, and where relevant written confirmation from the competent authority that the investment will not have any significant negative impact on sites of nature conservation.


The fund's investment guidelines will be required to ensure that procurement procedures applied by the underlying investments financed by the fund are in line with the provisions of the relevant Directives and EIB requirements as applicable.
