Environmental and Social Summary

The project has been Categorised as B in accordance with the EBRD's Environmental and Social (ESP) Policy 2014 and Environmental and Social Due Diligence (ESDD) has been undertaken by the Bank. The Borrower's portfolio of petrol filling stations is limited in extent and the assets that they do own are of relatively recent construction. Notwithstanding, the Borrower has a medium sized franchised network where Environment and Social (E&S) issues are required to be managed in a consistent manner.

ESDD identified that in order for the company and its existing and proposed expanded network to operate in accordance with the Bank's Peformance Requierments (PRs) a corporate level E&S policy is required to be developed. At an operational level a set of procedures will be derived from the corporate policies and a comprehensive management system will be developed, implemented and monitored across the network. An ESAP has been agreed with the client and the bank will monitor the project.
