Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects

Improving energy efficiency and energy conservation, in general, leads to a cleaner and better environment. Electricity production, particularly from fossil fuels, has far-reaching environmental impacts. Consequently, energy efficiency is closely related to environmental benefits. Other than the economic and financial benefits, improving energy efficiency in the country will decrease the demand for natural resources and reduce atmospheric pollutants, resulting in reduced greenhouse gas emissions and consequently less climate change impact. Moreover, improved energy efficiency will lower water use and improve water quality, reduce accumulation of solid waste, and reduce pressure on natural wilderness and pristine areas from fossil fuel biomass and extraction.

An environmental assessment and review framework is in place. It complies with the Pakistan Environmental Protection Act, 1997, and associated rules, regulations, and guidelines; and is in conformity with ADB's Environment Policy (2002) and Environmental Assessment Guidelines (2003). Environmental assessment for investments under individual tranches will be conducted within the agreed framework and ADB rules.

Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design To support the investment program preparation and the road map preparation, the Government established the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Consultative Group (EECCG) chaired by the Planning Commission and comprising Secretaries of EAD, Ministries of Finance, Water and Power, Petroleum and Natural Resources, Environment, Industries, the National Energy Conservation Center, PEPCO, power and gas utilities, Pakistan Standards and Quality Control Authority, Hydrocarbon Development Institute, Pakistan Council for Industrial and Scientific Research, and development partners. EECCG provides strategic guidance into the program design and implementation to ensure the effectiveness and sustainability of the project outcomes.
During Project Implementation EECCG will continue its strategic guidance role. The Planning Commission and PMU are coordinating with other stakeholders during implementation.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services Consultants will be carried out in line with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time) for (i) capacity and institutional development, (ii) project design and preparation, (iii) project implementation support, and (iv) energy efficiency standards program. The detailed terms of refence and implementation arrangements for each tranche are determined following consultations with the Government and the EA.
Procurement All procurement to be financed under an ADB loan will be carried out in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2013, as amended from time to time). ICB or NCB methods will be primarily used depending on contract size.
