Summary of Environmental and Social Issues

The project contributed to the improvement of urban air quality and health in the PRC and the reduction in overall emission of air pollutants, including greenhouse gases. The environmental impact of subproject pipeline construction was low, short-term, and localized, and has been mitigated through sound engineering practices. The size of gateway stations is limited (requiring less than 0.5 hectare of land) and potential for pollution is small. The project was categorized as FI for environment. With respect to social safeguards, the project was categorized as B/C for involuntary resettlement and C for indigenous peoples. The safeguard audit report indicates that CGH is in full compliance with the applicable national laws and regulations governing involuntary resettlement and indigenous peoples. CGH stakeholder engagement practices are satisfactory and the company complies with core labor standards. Since adoption of the resettlement framework, no new projects have been undertaken by CGH that entailed involuntary resettlement or affected ethnic minorities. In accordance with ADB s Safeguard Policy Statement (2009), CGH has adopted a corporate-level environmental and social management system (ESMS) as an updated and integrated system from an environmental management system and resettlement framework.
