Project Description

A senior loan of up to EUR 25 million to the Communal Enterprise "Dniprovska Municipalna Energoservisna Kompanya", the municipal energy management company, owned by the city of Dnipro. The loan is expected to be co-financed by up to EUR 5.5 million investment grant from the Eastern Europe Energy Efficiency and Environment Partnership (E5P), subject to grant approval by the E5P Assembly of Contributors. The local contribution of up to EUR 2.5 million will cover additional energy conservation measures and capital repairs.

The project proceeds will finance a pipeline of works contracts with elements of an Energy Performance Contract (EnPC") for energy efficiency investments in 98 public buildings, including 67 kindergartens, 27 schools and 4 outpatient clinics.

The loan will be a sub-project under the Public Sector Energy Efficiency Financing Framework, consisting of municipal-guaranteed loans to municipal energy management companies in Ukraine to facilitate critical improvements in energy efficiency measures in public buildings in a number of cities across Ukraine.

Project Objectives

The proposed investment will enable the city to finance energy efficiency measures through EnPCs implemented by private contractors selected by competitive tender. The investments are expected to result in strong improvement of buildings' condition through renovation of facilities and meeting heating requirements, improved comfort level and reliability of services at kindergartens, schools and clinics, as well as reduction of energy and maintenance costs of the buildings and decrease of CO2 emissions.

Additionality

Terms: The market for long-term borrowing for municipal energy efficiency projects in Ukraine is very limited; local bond and loan markets offer short maturities, other IFI facilities require sovereign backing.   

Attributes: The Bank is uniquely positioned for the dialogue with the government and the local authorities aimed at improvement of legal and business environment for increasing private sector participation.

Conditionalities: EBRD conditionalities significantly exceed commercial banks' requirements.

Environmental and Social Summary

Categorised B (2019 ESP). Environmental and social due diligence (ESDD) of the proposed investment was undertaken by independent consultants as part of a feasibility study. The ESDD showed that the energy efficiency measures including insulation of internal and external walls, roofs and basements, installation of new windows, ventilation systems and LED lighting, lagging of heating pipes and the introduction of automated temperature controls will bring substantial environmental and social benefits. The ESDD confirmed that the project is structured to meet the EBRD's Performance Requirements (PRs) and that the city has the institutional capacity to implement in compliance with the Bank's PRs and with national legislation. ESDD also concluded that any adverse environmental and social impacts of the project will be site-specific, mainly restricted to the construction phase. These include occupational health and safety risks, waste management and temporary loss of access to parts of public buildings, and they will be addressed through appropriate mitigation measures.

An Environmental and Social Action Plan (ESAP) has been developed and agreed with the client. ESAP includes requirements to appoint environmental and safety managers and develop Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) and waste management plans. Information on sub-projects will be disclosed at sites and online and will include grievances mechanism. For buildings where asbestos is identified, an asbestos management plan will be developed and implemented as part of the project. Monitoring of the project and ESAP implementation will be carried out via annual environmental and social reports provided by the client.

General enquiries

Environmental and Social Policy (ESP)

The ESP and the associated Performance Requirements (PRs) set out the ways in which the EBRD implements its commitment to promoting “environmentally sound and sustainable development”.  The ESP and the PRs include specific provisions for clients to comply with the applicable requirements of national laws on public information and consultation as well as to establish a grievance mechanism to receive and facilitate resolution of stakeholders’ concerns and grievances, in particular, about environmental and social performance of the client and the project. Proportionate to the nature and scale of a project’s environmental and social risks and impacts, the EBRD additionally requires its clients to disclose information, as appropriate, about the risks and impacts arising from projects or to undertake meaningful consultation with stakeholders and consider and respond to their feedback.

More information on the EBRD’s practices in this regard is set out in the ESP.

Integrity and Compliance

The EBRD's Office of the Chief Compliance Officer (OCCO) promotes good governance and ensures that the highest standards of integrity are applied to all activities of the Bank in accordance with international best practice. Integrity due diligence is conducted on all Bank clients to ensure that projects do not present unacceptable integrity or reputational risks to the Bank. The Bank believes that identifying and resolving issues at the project assessment approval stages is the most effective means of ensuring the integrity of Bank transactions. OCCO plays a key role in these protective efforts, and also helps to monitor integrity risks in projects post-investment.

OCCO is also responsible for investigating allegations of fraud, corruption and misconduct in EBRD-financed projects. Anyone, both within or outside the Bank, who suspects fraud or corruption should submit a written report to the Chief Compliance Officer by email to compliance@ebrd.com. All matters reported will be handled by OCCO for follow-up. All reports, including anonymous ones, will be reviewed. Reports can be made in any language of the Bank or of the Bank's countries of operation. The information provided must be made in good faith.

Access to Information Policy (AIP)

The AIP sets out how the EBRD discloses information and consults with its stakeholders so as to promote better awareness and understanding of its strategies, policies and operations following its entry into force on 1 January 2020. Please visit the Access to Information Policy page to find out what information is available from the EBRD website.

Specific requests for information can be made using the EBRD Enquiries form.

Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM)

If efforts to address environmental, social or public disclosure concerns with the Client or the Bank are unsuccessful (e.g. through the Client’s Project-level grievance mechanism or through direct engagement with Bank management), individuals and organisations may seek to address their concerns through the EBRD’s Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM).

IPAM independently reviews Project issues that are believed to have caused (or to be likely to cause) harm. The purpose of the Mechanism is: to support dialogue between Project stakeholders to resolve environmental, social and public disclosure issues; to determine whether the Bank has complied with its Environmental and Social Policy or Project-specific provisions of its Access to Information Policy; and where applicable, to address any existing non-compliance with these policies, while preventing future non-compliance by the Bank.

Please visit the Independent Project Accountability Mechanism webpage to find out more about IPAM and its mandate; how to submit a Request for review; or contact IPAM  via email ipam@ebrd.com to get guidance and more information on IPAM and how to submit a request.
