Environmental and Social Summary
Categorised B . The project-associated potential adverse impacts are limited to the standard environmental, health & safety, and social issues typical for the food sector. Environmental and social department has undertaken an in-house environmental and social assessment and has confirmed that the project can be structured to meet EBRD performance requirements. The company has required capacity to implement the project in line with the Bank's environmental and social policy. An environmental and social action plan (ESAP) has been drafted and agreed with the company.
The environmental and social due diligence included a review of the company's existing environmental & social (E&S) management systems, regulatory compliance, E&S performance records, labour and social issues. The due diligence has indicated that the current environmental, occupational health, safety and social practices and management systems are generally in line with the national legislation.
The major issues identified during environmental and social due diligence that require improvement actions include consistent implementation of the E&S management systems throughout the company, proper risk assessment and incident analysis, contractor and supply chain management, human resources and social practices.
A number of recommendations were formulated into an environmental and social action plan (ESAP) that include, inter alia: improvement of the corporate E&S management system and supervision, incident root-cause and trend analysis and preventive measures, proper contractor management, implementation of a supply chain management system, update of the existing human resources policies.

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.
