Environmental and Social Summary

Categorised B (ESP 2014). Nyva is an existing client of the EBRD and was subject to an independent environmental and social due diligence when the first project was undertaken on 2013. An Environmental and Social Action Plan (ESAP) was agreed with the Company to ensure compliance with the Bank's Performance Requirements (PRs) and the Company has been implementing that ESAP in the intervening period.

In the context of this new project, additional third party environmental , social and animal welfare due diligence was undertaken to, first, monitor implementation of actions agreed under the existing project and, second, understand the additional environmental and social impacts that might be associated with the construction of the proposed new facilities. In general, the company effectively deals with the key environmental and social issues. New developments and technologies selected by the company are in line with the EU and the Ukrainian legal requirements.

Animal welfare is maintained at a very high level and the company is committed to improving the welfare of pigs as evidenced by the commitment to ensure that all new facilities are designed and constructed to EU standards. Likewise with biosecurity which the Company understands is one of the main risk issues with the implementation of strict biosecurity procedures being a top priority with a high level of compliance.

Improvements required to ensure on-going compliance with the Bank's PRs have been structured within a revised ESAP, which has been agreed with the Company. The Company will be required to continue reporting on implementation of the ESAP and any other environmental or social issues on an annual basis. 

Technical Cooperation

A significant part of the legal and environmental and social due diligence costs has been covered by grant funding from the Japan-EBRD Technical Cooperation Fund.
