Guidance on Biodiversity and Ecosystems
European Investment Bank
This Guidance Note supports promoters, practitioners and other interested stakeholders in interpreting and implementing Standard 3 on Biodiversity and Ecosystems, as part of the EIB Environmental and Social Standards.
It emphasises the need for promoters to identify the risks and impacts to biodiversity and ecosystems associated with their projects following a credible and evidence-based process of impact assessment and to incorporate effective mitigation and management measures in their management systems, plans and procedures.
