Environmental Impact

The Project has been categorised B in accordance with the EBRD Environmental and Social Policy 2008. Environmental and social due diligence (ESDD) has been undertaken by the Bank’s Environment and Sustainability Department based on a review of Nibulon’s corporate management systems and relevant information provided by Nibulon as well as a site visit and discussions with the Company’s personnel.

The Bank's environmental and social due diligence confirmed that Nibulon has adequate corporate systems in place to manage their environmental, health and safety (EHS) issues and that at both the corporate and site level Nibulon is substantially compliant with local EHS regulatory requirements. All sites have dedicated EHS and hygiene engineers and a HR manager. Nibulon has an advanced supply chain management system adhered to the international standards and undertakes regular audits of the suppliers, hence contributing to the establishing of the high quality standard in the industry and improving the suppliers’ quality performance.

An Environmental and Social Action Plan (ESAP) has been developed, and should be agreed with Nibulon, to address the necessary mitigation measures and improvements which will allow Nibulon to achieve compliance with national regulations and the Bank’s PRs. Specifically, the ESAP requires Nibulon to improve fire safety performance at the operational sites.

The Bank will monitor Nibulon’s environmental and social performance and implementation of the ESAP through annual ES reports.
