Environmental and Social Impact Assessment
We take into account the environmental, social and the project-related human rights impacts when evaluating the transactions we support.
We make assessment of the environmental, social and project-related human rights impacts for the exports of capital goods and/or services, excluding military equipment and agricultural commodities, with a repayment period of two years or more in line with our Environmental Guidelines.
We classify all transactions where our share is equal to or above SDR 10 million as well as the transactions in or near sensitive areas (e.g natural parks, protected areas, rain forests, archeological or cultural attractions) irrespective of our share.
We classify the transactions into categories A, B or C accordance with their potential environmental and social impacts.
- Category A: adverse environmental and/or social impacts
- Category B: moderate adverse environmental and/or social impacts
- Category C: minimal or no adverse environmental and/or social impacts
We want our stakeholders to know that we may disclose any information about the social, environmental and project-related human rights impacts of the transactions we support to the public by taking into account the competitive context and constraints of business confidentiality. We may also share such information with the international institutions, where we are committed for periodical reporting.
