Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects Environmental benefits include less air pollution through the reduction of local emissions of sulfur dioxides; nitrogen oxides; particulate matters; and most importantly, CO2. The component addressing lamp waste management will include the collection of spent fluorescent lamps from households, institutions, and business establishments. The facility will enable consumers to dispose of fluorescent lamps without damaging the environment. Disposal of spent CFLs and fluorescent tube lamps in landfills is among the primary sources of mercury pollution that could migrate to groundwater and also become airborne. Recovery of glass tubes, aluminum, mercury, and other lamp components by the recycling facility would reduce the need for production of raw materials. Mercury emission during recycling is negligible. The recycling facility has air emission control equipment to ensure that mercury levels comply with applicable standards. Regular monitoring of indoor air quality will be undertaken during operation. Transport, storage, handling, and packaging of recycled materials mercury in particular will be in accordance with the requirements of the Republic Act 6969 (an act to control toxic substances and hazardous and nuclear wastes).
Involuntary Resettlement
Indigenous Peoples The Project will cover the entire country. The project beneficiaries are customers from all ethnic groups. The Project will have no negative impact on ethnic minority groups. The social mobilization program for procurement of CFLs will prepare brochures, which will be in the local language and extensive graphics will be used for easy understanding by all. Specific measures in social mobilization will be included so that lifeline and ethnic groups understand the benefits of CFLs.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The project design involved participation of a wide range of stakeholders, including the electric cooperatives that will be implementing the Project under the leadership of NEA. The wide range of consultation has helped develop a sense of ownership by all. The Department of Finance has allocated the necessary amount of counterpart funding for the Project. The distribution of CFLs will accelerate the switching from incandescent bulbs to CFLs by all customers.
During Project Implementation An integrated campaign will be launched based on the detailed marketing plan developed with the Government during project preparation. The communication plan themes are (i) widespread awareness, (ii) widespread understanding, (iii) cooperation and participation, (iv) development of a sense of urgency, and (v) community ownership.
