Environmental and Social Summary

Categorised B (2014 ESP). The Project will facilitate the introduction of energy efficient street lighting, which will reduce electricity consumption and improve public safety. Environmental and social due diligence was carried out with the assistance of an independent consultant who reviewed the Company's management procedures and the environmental and social risks associated with project implementation. These include electrical safety, working at heights and disposal of decommissioned mercury lamps. As project implementation will be carried out by sub-contractors, the consultants have developed an environmental and social ("E&S") policy for the Company and checklists for contractor screening, E&S risk assessment and monitoring, implementation of which is a condition of the loan agreement.

Text of the PIP

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.
