The Bank should publish national ECA environmental and other related policy statements or principles and procedural guidance relevant to the implementation of the OECD common approaches.
For Category A projects the Bank should disclose publicly project information, including project name, location, description of project (ESIA report, summary) as early as possible during the review process but at least 30 calendar days before a final commitment to grant official support.
The Bank is ready to share information between other entities in case of co-financing or other partnerships.
The project sponsor is encouraged by the Bank to publish information regarding environmental and social impacts. Information related to the transaction shall not be disclosed by the Bank in accordance with business secrecy without the consent of the parties. Legislation and competition aspects for the protection of business secrets are handled by the Bank in accordance with the law on publishing environmental information.
The Bank provides information on funded projects (A, B, C) for OECD on a continuous basis, but at least in every six months. The Bank prepares reports annually (ex post) on "A" and "B" categories projects accepted according to the form and content of the OECD common approaches.
At least annually the Bank ensures the availability to the public – considering the possibilities of national legislation –, all environmental information of categories "A" and "B" transactions (e.g. international standards applied, location of inspection, etc.).
In case of category A and B projects, if the provisions of the OECD Common Approaches have been applied, the projects will be reported to the OECD. The OECD annually publishes a summary of these reports on its website. In this manner, this information is made available to the public in an aggregated form.
The Bank annually publishes (on its website) the information (project description, technical data, standards, regulatory compliance, etc.) of the accepted environmentally and socially screened projects including categories A, B and C as well.
