Project Description

EBRD is considering providing EUR 150 million loan to Ford Otomotiv Sanayi A.S (“Ford Otosan”) to finance the domestic vendor tooling expenditure in its 3-year capex program.

Transition Impact

The Transition impact of the Project is foreseen to be realized as:

1) Market expansion is expected to occur in the automotive supplier market as the Project creates backward linkages to both new and existing Ford suppliers.

2) The Project may increase competition which may induce other automotive producers to localize their own production in the segment

3) Demonstration of new products and technologies will occur as Ford Otosan will be implementing new technologies in the production which are new to the market.

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.
