Project Description

The EBRD will finance US$ 53 million of a total investment cost of US$ 98 million to fund the rehabilitation of the 80 hectare Jakusevac solid waste landfill site in Zagreb, Croatia.

The project aims to improve one of the largest uncontrolled landfills in Europe, which has been in use for over 30 years. It involves construction of new waste disposal facilities for an additional 2.5 million tonnes of waste and aims to improve waste management practices in the City of Zagreb.

Transition Impact

The project is expected to lead to decentralisation of waste management services, to increase efficiency and compliance in the waste management sector, to promote good and sustainable environmental practice and to encourage reform in the operation and funding of municipal services.

The Client

The client is ZGOS, a municipally owned waste management company. It was created in 1998 as part of Zagreb's strategy to establish environmentally sustainable recycling and waste treatment systems. One of ZGOS's main objectives is to improve to EU environmental standards the entire Jakusevac landfill site in Zagreb.

EBRD Finance

DM 95.5 million of the total investment cost of DM 168 million. Co-financed by an international loan syndicate.

Project Cost

DM 168 million for the full rehabilitation of the 80 hectares.

Environmental Impact

The project will have a positive impact on the environment. Rehabilitation of the landfill will bring the site in line with EU environmental standards. The programme will protect groundwater and will remove the risk to existing and future drinking water supplies.

Technical Cooperation

DM 3,603,000

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.
