Complaint to EBRD’s Public Complaint Mechanism: The Sostanj thermal power plant project
Official document | 17 January 2012
Bankwatch, Slovenian NGO Focus and Environmental Legal Service (CZ) ask the EBRD’s Project Complaint Mechanism to undertake a compliance review of whether the bank has complied with its Environmental and Social Policy 2008 in relation to two aspects of the Sostanj lignite thermal power plant:
(a) Claims by the EBRD that the project in question is “CCS ready” and
(b) the EBRD’s assessment of whether Slovenia can fulfil its obligations in meeting long-term EU climate goals if it undertakes the project.
