We have been requested by investors to act as lenders E&S advisors for two new power projects in West Africa. This function involves the verification of the projects environmental and social impact assessment and the permission status.
It further benchmarks the project against the IFC Performance Standards.
Based on the gaps identified in our E&S due diligence, we will suggest, discuss and agree upon an environmental and social action plan with the power plant management which – over time – assures that the project complies with agreed E&S standards.
The implementation progress of the ESAP will be reviewed periodically, among others during site visits.
