About Us

Following the approval of the Environmental Compliance Decree (ECD) 8471/2012, the Ministry of Environment (MoE) joined forces with Banque Du Liban (BDL), the World Bank and the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation to set up an environmental compliance mechanism for industrial enterprises through the Lebanon Environmental Pollution Abatement Project (LEPAP).

LEPAP provides free technical assistance to industrial enterprises through national and international consultants in order to evaluate their environmental status and propose actions in view of improving their overall environmental performance in line with the national regulations. A financial mechanism was developed under the LEPAP project to support the industries to be able to execute the recommended environmental actions by offering concessional loans supported by BDL through commercial banks. LEPAP loans which are close to zero interest rate are provided for a period of 7 years including a grace period of 2 years.
