The EBRD is considering a 5-year local currency loan to OJSC Ruscam-Kirishi, one of 5 Russian subsidiaries of the Turkish glass packaging manufacturer Anadolu Cam, in order to finance the Company’s increased working capital needs. at its glass packaging plant in Kirishi (near St. Petersburg).
The project is expected to contribute to demonstration of new processes (i.e. environmental techniques), market expansion and forward linkages, whilst fostering a more competitive market. In addition, the Project will entail setting standards of corporate governance and business conduct which should have also have a positive demonstration effect on other market participants.
OJSC “Ruscam Kirishi”.
Up to RUB 480 million (EUR 12 million equivalent)
EUR 65 million.
Categorised B in accordance with the EBRD Environmental and Social Policy 2008. The environmental and social due diligence is under way and will focus on updating the investigations that were undertaken for the EBRD's existing project with the Company in 2008 so as to address the full scope of the EBRD Performance Requirements (PRs) relevant to the Company's operations.
Environmental and social impacts from the operation of container glass facilities are limited mainly to air emissions and wastewater discharges, and can readily be identified, assessed and mitigated. The due diligence undertaken in 2008 confirmed that the existing operations are in compliance with National environmental standards and that the planned investment programme is structured to meet National and EU environmental standards. Although, the proposed investment programme is structured to meet EU environmental standards, some of the existing operations would not fully meet Best Available Techniques (BAT) as included in the EU IPPC BREF Note for new plants, notably in terms of NOx emissions. This issue was assessed further as part of the due diligence in 2008, and the measures planned by the Company, such as the use of low NOx burners and primary measure, and considering the the location of the Kirishi plant will not result in material adverse environmental and/or public health impact. In addition, the Company will install Electrostatic Precipitators (ESPs) so as to limit dust emissions and in line with BAT requirements.
Based on the environmental and social due diligence, the Environmental and Social Action Plan (ESAP) agreed in 2008 will be updated and amended to ensure the Company will implement the project in compliance with EBRD PRs. The ESAP is likely to include improved management of raw material supply and contractors as well as development of a stakeholder engagement plan. These would be additional to the existing ESAP that includes measures such as implementation of an environmental, health and safety management systems in line with international standards as well as further measures and investments to reduce energy use as well as improve the abatement of air emissions and wastewater discharges in line with good international practice.
This section will be amended upon completion of the environmental and social due diligence.

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 how to submit a Request for review through our confidential online form, by email, mail or telephone. IPAM is available to discuss your concerns and answer any questions you may have about the submission or handling of Requests, which follow the Project Accountability Policy and Guidance. Requestors’ identities may be kept confidential, upon request.
