Screening category and justification

The project was categorized as B (2008), requiring an Environmental and Social Due Diligence (ESDD), consisting of an environmental analysis of the proposed investment programme and an environmental audit of the existing production facilities.

The new investments, notably energy efficiency measures and the replacement of the old Electrics Arc Furnaces (EAF) with a state of the art new EAF will have significant environmental benefits, through reduced emissions and lower energy use. The new EAF is to be equipped with a dust abatement equipment in line with EU Best Available Techniques (BAT) requirements. The Company will also install continuous emission monitoring equipment.
In terms of social aspects, the Company has good Human Resource management system and is addressing social and labour issues in line with national requirements as well as corporate standards that meet the Bank’s PRs of Environmental & Social Policy. This is still being further reviewed as part of the ESDD.

An Environmental and Social Action Plan (ESAP) is being developed as part of the ESDD and will be agreed prior to the Bank’s final management review. This will require among others, further strengthening of existing management systems, notably in terms of developing and implementing ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 complaint management systems. The ESAP will also include specific performance standards for the new investments in compliance with EU IPPC BREF Note BAT guidance, notably in terms of energy efficiency measure and emission abatement on the new EAF.
A stakeholder Engagement Plan (SEP) is being developed by the Company in line with PR10 and will be agreed with the Company as part of the due diligence.

The PSD will be updated once the ESDD is complete and the ESAP has been fully agreed.
