Environmental Impact

This operation underwent an environmental analysis of the potential impact of the proposed development construction and operation. The company completed and returned the EBRD’s environmental due diligence questionnaire for construction projects and attached some additional information. The questionnaire was reviewed and judged to contain all the necessary information required by the Bank.

Among other things, the questionnaire confirmed that:

  • all applicable construction permits and approvals have been obtained;
  • the proposed development sites have no past history of contamination;
  • developments will be constructed using good international practice and in compliance with relevant national and European Union environmental, health and safety requirements;
  • developments will not involve any harmful or hazardous materials and will include in the design environmentally positive features, such as comprehensive heat insulation;
  • the operators of the proposed development will likewise follow good international practice, thus bringing environmental benefits, such as the recycling of waste streams and the re-use, where possible, of items to reduce energy and water consumption.


The company will report to the EBRD on an annual basis on environmental and health and safety issues related to the developments.
