Environmental and social due diligence

Projects in the industrial sector may have consequences for the importing country’s inhabitants and the environment. In order to prevent and mitigate adverse environmental and social impacts of projects, ODL complies with the OECD guidelines on environmental and social due diligence for export credits.


Potential environmental impacts may include, but are not limited to, generation of significant air emissions, including greenhouse gas emissions, effluents, waste, hazardous waste, wastewater, noise and vibrations, significant use of natural resources, and impacts on endangered species.



Potential social impacts may include, but are not limited to, labour and working conditions, community health, safety, and security, land acquisition and involuntary resettlement, indigenous peoples, cultural heritage, and project-related human rights impacts, including forced labour, child labour, and life-threatening occupational health and safety situations.
