Information request regarding justification for approval of the Kolubara lignite mine project
Advocacy letter | 20 July 2011
The letter poses questions regarding the environmental and social appraisal for the Kolubara lignite mine project and the due diligence carried out by the EBRD before the project’s approval by the EBRD:
- How has the EBRD assessed the corporate behaviour of the Kolubara and EPS companies towards communities affected by the extension of mining operations?
- How has the EBRD defined the project’s influence in the Kolubara basin?
- Can EBRD staff provide studies or numbers justifying Serbia’s need for further growth of coal production?
