Publication of A and B projects

For category A and B projects, we do a comprehensive environmental and social assessment. Part of this is publication before and after the policy is issued.

This includes a brief summary of environmental and social considerations.

A project is classified as "A" if there are potentially major adverse environmental and social impacts due to the project, extending beyond the project site. A project is classified as "B" if there are potentially substantial adverse environmental and social impacts, which are confined to the project boundaries. A brief summary of environmental and social considerations is published after the policy is issued. For Category A, we do additional publication prior to issuance of the policy. For further information on our categorization, please refer to the CSR Policy Document

In addition to category A and B projects, we also publish information on policies issued in other categories.  

Ex ante publication of category A projects

Based on international agreements and Dutch policy, we publish category A projects at least 30 days before the policy is issued. Anyone interested in the published project can request the environmental and social impact assessment from the Atradius DSB contact person during this publication period.   

Ex post publication of category A an B projects

As part of our commitment to transparency, since January 1, 2023, we provide a brief summary of the environmental and social considerations for both A and B projects after a policy is issued. For category A projects, this information has already been published since 2016. For 2016 and 2017, you will find this information in a separate document, and for 2018 through 2022, this information is included in the overall summary of policies issued. These documents are published below. 

Reporting category A and B projects to the OECD

State credit insurers in OECD countries are required to report their Category A and B projects covered by the Common Approaches to the OECD. The OECD produces a summary of these reports each year, which it publishes on its site
