Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects In compliance with ADB SPS requirements for General Corporate Finance lending modalities, a Corporate Audit of the company's environmental and social management system (ESMS) has been undertaken. Compliance with national, international and ADB standards were assessed, and where any non-compliance was identified, a Corrective Action Plan (CAP) was prepared and agreed with the company. The CAP included enhancements to the company''s ESMS to ensure compliance with ADB SPS. The company committed to adopting the enhanced ESMS prior to first disbursement. ADB will closely monitor project implementation. An independent technical study confirmed that the construction and operation of WTEs will not result in irreversible, diverse or unprecedented environmental impacts and health risks.
Involuntary Resettlement The project''s impact on involuntary resettlement is expected not to be significant as land is acquired by the government to establish the eco-industrial park (EIP) where the WTE facility may be located. A Social Compliance Audit will be undertaken for each subproject proposed to use ADB funding to confirm past or present IR impacts and if actions taken meet IR safeguard requirements. In case of incompliance, a CAP will be prepared. Where WTE facility will be constructed outside an EIP, the subproject will be screened for IR impacts to confirm if preparation and implementation of a resettlement plan will be required. The project will fund a portfolio of WTE facilities, none of which has been identified to date. WTE projects categorized as A for involuntary resettlement will be excluded from ADB funding.
Indigenous Peoples The WTE projects may be located within eco-industrial parks in the PRC. The proposed project is not anticipated to impact on vulnerable ethnic minorities or to affect territories or natural and cultural resources owned, used, occupied or claimed by vulnerable ethnic minorities as their ancestral domain.
