INTRODUCTION

The objective of Revenue Administration Modernization Project is to increase the efficiency,
transparency and accountability of the revenue administration in the Republic of Croatia. This is
proposed to be achieved through the five p
roject components:


A
.
Organizational Consolidation and Functional Realignment of the Zagreb Tax Office
.
(Physically consolidate the tax offices in the Zagreb Region into a single modern
facility. Reorganize the consolidated office along functional li
nes. Rationalize and
strengthen large taxpayer administration.)

B.

Knowledge and Professional Upgrading of Tax Officials and Stakeholders.
(Strengthen
the CTA’s human resource management capacity. Upgrade the CTA’s training and
knowledge
-
sharing programs
. Establish an Education Centre and distance learning
facilities.)

C.

Technological Upgrading for Services, Management Information System and PIN
Implementation.
(Modernize business processes, including e
-
Tax functions. Acquire
contemporary, integrated t
ax administration application software. Implement
appropriate security, business
-
continuity and disaster
-
recovery capabilities.
Implement an integrated Management Information System. Help implement the new
Personal Identification Number


PIN.)

D.

Mode
rnization Management and Project Support.


(Develop a Strategy Plan for CTA
Modernization. Support project governance, management and administration,
including monitoring and evaluation.).

The Government of Croatia has requested World Bank assistance to fi
ll specific gaps that will
contribute to modernizing the Croatian tax administration (CTA) in line with the EU accession needs
and priorities. The Bank financing would support the modernization effort in areas where the Bank has
considerable expertise, and

which has not been covered by assistance from the EU or bilateral donors.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

2.1

Objective

The objectives of this
Environmental Management Plan (EMP)

is to review environmental due
diligence procedures related to
the reconstruction of the
existing facility of the T
ax
Local Office
Vinkovci for the purpose of the Disaster
-
Recovery/Back
-
Up Center under the Business Systems
Component
, and to
prepare mitigation measures and monitoring plan

to describe actions to
mitigate expected environmental i
mpacts. The assessment also reviews issues related to assessment
of social safeguards such as cultural heritage (e.g., assessing the presence of cultural values, cultural
land issues or sites previously identified as cultural sites; and a process for "chan
ce finds", or anything
unearthed by chance in the digging/construction process). Objectives of EMP have been defined
based on
the
following
World Bank’s
policies
:
OP/BP 4.01 Environmental Assessment, OP 17.50
Disclosure Policy, and possibly OP/BP 4.11 Cult
ural Property.

2.2

Scope

The task report for the preparation of EMP covers:

(i)

a review of current facility in Vinkovci
;

(ii)

the legal framework, including the role and responsibilities of the
CTA

and other agencies in
this project related to environmental issues; t
he environmental and construction permitting
process of Croatia applicable to the proposed works; and

(iii)

in line with identified potential impacts and effects, suggested mitigation measures, including
possible changes to environmental and social impact asses
sment and mitigation procedures,
preparation of guidelines and practical suggestions, and related training.

The task report will cover environmental issues related to:



Reconstruction of the existing building (existing office will be reconstructured and an
nexed


adapted to the office contents in the garages above ground),




Disaster
-
Recovery/Back
-

POLICY, LEGAL, AND A
DMINISTRATIVE FRAMEW
ORK

4.1

WB policies

As for the ot
her projects proposed for World Bank financing, RAMP also requires preparation of
environmental assessment (EA) to help ensure that reconstruction / construction of facilities are
environmentally sound and sustainable and as well to improve decision making

related to the project.
The Bank undertakes environmental screening of each proposed project to determine the appropriate
extent and type of EA. The Bank classifies the proposed project into one of four categories, depending
on the type, location, sensiti
vity, and scale of the project and the nature and magnitude of its
potential environmental impacts. In this way risks associated with project actions can be effectively
anticipated in advance before project implementation, and addressed by direct mitigatio
n activities in
the design, planning and construction supervision process as well as during the operation of the
facilities.

The project has been classified as a category B project, meaning that the project might have potential
adverse environmental impac
ts on human populations and/or environmentally important areas. For all
Category B projects and Environmental management Plan needs to be prepared.

4.2

Croatian policies

One situation

related to administrative procedures for procurement of documents proceeding

construction works execution ha
s

been recognized:





6

1.

Reconstruction that includes upgrade (building extensions)


for the
Local

O
ffice

Vinkovci

Procedures preceding construction in Croatian legislative are:
land acquisition,

environmental
impact assessment
(EIA)
,
location permit

procurement and
construction permit

procurement.
For the type of projects / activities envisaged under RAMP Project EIA is neither required nor
suggested.

After issuance of all relevant permits, completion of construction works, and
before utilization of the
object, it is necessary to obtain
Operation Permit
.

4.2.1

Location permit

Location permit is administrative document defined by the Physical Planning
and Building Act
(Off.
Gazette
N
o.
76/07 and 38/09).
It is issued based on Physical Pla
nning document and on special related
laws and regulations.

Location permit defines important characteristics of planned intervention like: form and size of
construction lot, purpose, size (height, number of floors) and area of the constructed object, auxi
liary
objects on construction site (garages, storages, septic tanks, etc.), architectural form of the object
(roof, materials and other factors depending on surroundings), site organization, methods and
conditions of connection of the object to public traf
fic surface (including parking lots) and communal
infrastructure, mitigation measures related to environment (if intervention notably effect environment
by its operation) and other elements important for spatial intervention. Location permit needs to be
i
ssued for every spatial intervention, except for cases specially defined under regulations

(The
Ordinance on Spatial Intervention that do not Require Procurement of Location Permit
-

Off. Gazette
N
o.
101/07
).

According to The Ordinance on Spatial Inter
vention that does not Require Procurement of Location
Permit (Off. Gazette
101/07
), following activities do
not require issuance of location permit: a)
adaptation and maintenance without any changes of profile, size and purpose of the project,
b)

construct
ion or installation of connection of the building to low
-
voltage and telecommunication grid,
water supply line, sewerage, gas pipeline, cable TV and heating system. However official approval of
service provider with its instructions are required and need t
o be acquired prior any works, and
c)

site
restoration, construction of water cistern and septic tank, alignment of solar plates, construction of
underground or ground storage of fuel up to 10 m
3
.

If construction works are performed on an object protected
as cultural monument, prior to any kind of
works (for spatial intervention that do not require location permit) it is necessary to obtain an official
approval from the regional authorized body (Regional Office for Monument Protection).

4.2.2

Construction permit


Construction permit is administrative document defined by the Law on Construction (Off. Gazette
N
o.
175/03 and 100/04). After verification and issuance of the permit construction may start. Construction
permit confirms that the Main project is in complia
nce with Location permit and all special conditions
issued by authorized bodies and obtained in the Location permit procurement procedure. In addition,
Main project conformity to important construction regulations defined in the Law on Construction are
eva
luated. For instance: mechanical resistance, stability of building, fire protection, sanitary health
and environmental conditions, operational safety, energy efficiency, thermal insulation, access and
mobility in the object. The ownership and the construct
ion rights on the parcel are as well defined.

Construction permit needs to be issued for every construction, except for cases specially defined in
regulations. Related to constructions under RAMP,
Construction permit is not required

for
constructions that

fall under following categories:
a)

adaptation and maintenance without any
changes of profile, size and purpose of the project, and b
)
cable and air connections of the object to
the low
-
voltage electrical grid, telecommunication grid, and connection

to c
ommunal installation
(water supply line, sewerage, gas pipeline, thermal pipeline)

For attaining Construction permit it is necessary to submit evidence that legal or physical entity
submitting the request for permit has a right to build on the parcel in qu
estion.





7

4.2.3

Operational permit

Operation permit is issued after the technical assessment of the constructed object, if proven that the
object has been constructed in compliance with Construction permit requirements and the Main
project.

4.2.4

EMP and administrativ
e procedures preceding construction

Environmental Management Plan (EMP) comprises procedures whose purpose is to recognize and
control the quality of environment and to identify and implement measures in the process of
realization of investment, aiming at
mitigation of negative environmental impacts and environmental
protection.

EMP is not a requirement in Croatian laws and acts, i.e. EMP as an obligatory or binding document
does not exist in the preparation of any investment projects, however some elements

usually found in
EMP are prescribed in permits and documents preceding construction, whose supervision is under the
jurisdiction of different Ministries and agencies (annex 2).

ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECT
S

5.1

Identification of possible environmental issues

The ac
tivities supported by the project comprise as described in the scope of the project, the
reconstruction or construction of th
e new buildings
. The immediate impact on the environment
especially related to reconstruction activities would be minimal. Accordin
g to Croatian Laws, for the
construction of proposed type of facilities, the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is not
necessary, which indicates that the impacts on the environment

by this

type of projects are limited.

Possible environmental issues c
an be clearly separated in two categories, one related to construction
and other related to operation. The main types of environmental issues that derive from the actions
during construction / reconstruction are following:



Dust and noise due to the demolit
ion and construction



Disposal of construction waste



Large quantities of excavated material

While the one related to operation are:



Risk associated with handling wastes during operation

/ maintenance

(municipal, hazardous,
etc.)

All these risks can
be effec
tively dealt with, if

they are recognized through this EMP in pre
-
design
phase. In this project, implementation
of mitigation measures can be advised on three levels:
design, construction/reconstruction and operation
. These measures should be feasible and
cost effective aiming at eliminating, offsetting and reducing adverse environmental impacts. The
measure should not only deal with recognized risks, but should as well be used as guidance to make
facilities more environmentally friendly and sustainable.

5.2

En
vironmental Guidelines

The Environmental Guidelines

address environmental and ecological/biologic concept, design and
planning
of new buildings
and guideline for construction and renovation of office buildings. The
guidelines cover the handling of construc
tion debris generated, selection of construction materials and
construction methods with limited impact on the environment, energy saving methods as well as the
handling of hazardous and non
-
hazardous wastes, and storage of hazardous materials under projec
t
supported activities. The guidelines are a base for design, training, research, discussions and
workshops.

5.2.1

Design phase

In the design phase many important issues could be approached, investigated and best choices
incorporated into design. Designer has
a choice on orientation of the object and rooms within the




8

object, design of object in a manner that are energy efficient, recommendation of types of materials,
adaptation of building to exterior landscape and surrounding architecture. Orientation of the o
bject
and rooms within, energy efficiency and choice of materials presented in this part of the document are
not mandatory by Croatian legislation or by WB policies, but are just recommended guidelines that
should be thought of when designing building and
implemented only based on cost benefit
assessment.

Orientation of the object and rooms within

The object and the rooms should be oriented to use in the best way the seasonal impacts of climate,
internal thermal load, and characteristics of exposure. Orien
tation relative to insolation and prevailing
refreshing summer winds is one of the factors most frequently not regarded in site planning. Window
location should be determined on view, ventilation, light, thermal gain, privacy control and interior
space fun
ctions. The orientation of the rooms within the object regarding the best use of insolation
should also be taken into consideration. The planning should also take into consideration that these
buildings have to accommodate needs of receiving large number o
f people.

Energy efficiency

Whole
-
building design or a systems approach considers the interaction of all elements of the building
site, building envelope, mechanical systems, and occupants to help achieve optimal energy
performance. The key is to reduce th
e house load (energy use) using the best combination of:

Conservation (insulation, efficient lighting and appliances, house orientation), Insolation (solar gain),
and Thermal Storage (mass in walls and floors which helps keep the house a more constant
temp
erature).

Most energy
-
efficient buildings

have four basic elements in common:
a)
A well
-
constructed and tightly
sealed thermal envelop
e with appropriate ventilation, b)
Proper design and installation of heating and
cooling systems (properly sized, high
-
ef
ficiency, energy so
urce, ventilation and ductwork), c)
Energy
-
efficient

doors, windows, and appliances, d)
Home orientation and placement of building elements to
maximize natural heating and cooling efficiency.

Specific ways to achieve energy efficiency t
hrough a systems approach could include: Use of passive
solar advantages on the building site (and appropriate overhangs), Efficient lighting, Water
conservation fixtures and appropriate placement of water heating equipment, Design for appropriate
insulati
on levels and reduce labor costs with Optimum Value Engineering framing techniques,
Landscaping (trees, bushes, earthberms provide shading, block a prevailing wind), Thermostat with
automatic setback for night, Increased insulation in exterior wall, ceilin
g, floors and foundation,
Moisture control within the building envelope to control moisture buildup, Selection of energy efficient
appliances, Dampers on all vents, fans and chimneys , Use of appropriate colored materials and
coatings on exterior or roof (
i.e. light colored where summer cooling climates dominate). It is
recommended to anticipate use of more efficient and energy saving chillers, energy & water
equipment.

Choice of materials

Designer should consider environmentally sound materials yet applic
able for the purpose. For office
spaces (and spaces where no specific activities are conducted) tradition tile, marble, stone and
terrazzo floors can be hard to stand and walk upon but have proven durability. Nontoxic grouts and
methods of installation sho
uld be used. For exterior walls insulation it is recommended to use natural
insulation materials like opeka, or if not feasible place insulation materials on concrete walls, like
mineral wool, materials that do not absorb water and do not conduct heat comm
ercially known as
stiropor, ortipor and others, or any environmentally friendly material with low thermal conductivity.
Paints for wall or plaster surfaces should be water
-
based interior nontoxic, no allergenic paint instead
latex or oil
-
based paints from
a respiratory standpoint. Nontoxic finishes are available but expensive.
Selecting the least toxic finishes is advised. Exposed plumbing and pipe insulation should be of
nontoxic material.

Indoor air quality

Adapting an old building might imply that mater
ials build in are no longer produced or used and now,
in current form may seriously
affect

ambient air quality.





9

Building material such as particleboard, plywood, urea
-
formaldehyde foam insulation and various
adhesives emit formaldehyde. Chipped and peeling

paint containing lead becomes airborne toxic dust.
Some pollutants are somewhat unique in indoor environment, such as asbestos used for fireproofing,
heating system insulations, floor and ceiling tiles, roofing felts and shingles; radon gas which steps ou
t
of soil and collects in the houses and biological pollutants, such as house dust mites, fungi and other
microorganisms usually retained in textile based floors which are difficult to maintain.

When preparing reconstruction / adaptation plan these issue s
hould be kept in mind and a special
attention should be put on replacement of materials and on the choice of new. By the design of new
buildings infiltration should be minimized. A system for proper natural and
,

if applicable forced
ventilation
,

should be
designed. Using electrostatic, activated charcoal, and high
-
efficiency filters can
greatly improve the indoor air quality.

Smoking areas or rooms, if any, should be isolated by partitions and equipped with outside exhaust
that creates a negativ
e pressure
in the space. C
opy machines, as well as other reproduction
equipment, should be adequately ventilated to remove their particulates and gases.

Exterior

The design of the buildings should respect the rules of physical planning with its form and fit into
sur
rounding architecture by not blemishing the landscape. For the pedestrian zone that has to be
paved, natural material like stone should be preferred, if it is cost justifiable. Pressed concrete blocks
or elements made from pressed stone waste can be a good

alternative. It is important to avoid
asphalt, one
-
piece concrete surfaces or other materials that do not allow water circulation.
Impermeable surfaces are recommended on parking lots and access roads (ways). It is necessary to
plan access to the faciliti
es depending on trucks, etc.

If objects have historical gardens, they have to be re
-
cultivated in a way to respect they historical
matrix and flora.

Access barriers

A special attention should be made to design of interiors and exteriors to make access for

handicap or

less mobile persons. Design should be in line with the Ordinance on Securing the Access to the
Buildings for People with Disabilities and Reduced Mobility (Official Gazette 89/06).


5.2.2

Construction / reconstruction phase

In the construction phase

the emphasis is on possible environmental impacts that follow construction
works. Issues that could be addressed are: construction and other waste management, minimization
of dust and noise, top soil management, procurement of construction material, site
restoration,
temporary storage of the material, storage of hazardous materials, archeological and monument finds,
traffic management plan, working hours, recruitment, encroachment into the neighbor territory.

It is essential to mention that prior any star
t of construction works it is mandatory to facilitate normal
work.

Recruitment of workers

Respecting the social component of sustainable development, it is highly advised to hire local workers
on the construction of new objects and restoration. The use of
local knowledge and crafts is also
recommendable.

Noise reduction

Before any beginning of the work it is recommended to inform neighbors either directly or through
local bulletins or newspapers on the construction of new objects and reconstruction. The noi
se should
be limited by using good management practice and limiting works on regular daily shift. The
equipment and machinery used should be calibrated according to the
Ordinance

on Highest Permitted
Levels of Noise in Working and Living Environment (Off.
G
azette 145/04) and the Law on Noise
Protection (Off.
G
azette 20/03).

Dust minimization





10

Temporary technical solutions and measures for dust minimization during construction should be
used. For the transportation of earthlike or any other dusty material to
the construction site or of the
construction site watering or covering of the cargo should be implemented. Reduction of dust on
construction / reconstruction site during dry season of the year can be accomplished by watering the
ground surface. Water shoul
d not be wasted. Reducing speed can be another applicable measure.
Workers that perform demolition should be introduced with safety equipment, while dust from the
object can be prevented by enclosing of construction site

if necessary
.

Construction waste

an
d excavated material handling

It is mandatory that contractor prior to start of the works asks the Institution to remove all equipment
and material that will no longer be used and to dispose it or recycle it in a proper manner.

Wastes
where ever possible s
hould be minimized, separated and handled accordingly. It is possible to
separate these types of wastes:

1.

construction debris: tiles, bricks, concrete and other waste with similar properties from
demolition;

2.

wood: doors, window frames, floors, etc.;

3.

plastic
s: coating, blinds, etc.;

4.

glass: from windows and doors;

5.

metals: boilers, kettles, coated tubs, sinks;

6.

electrical waste: insulation materials, wires, etc.;

7.

sanitary materials:
ceramic sinks, toilets.

8.

excavated material: soil.

When waste is separated as adv
ised in the Law on Waste (Off. Gazette
N
o. 178/04
, 115/06
) it is more
manageable. Some materials like doors or ceramics sinks might be usable on the site again. Non
-
usable materials should be taken to appropriate place for recycling. For non recyclable was
tes, in
arrangement with municipality
,

waste will
b
e deposited on legal landfills. Open burning and illegal
dumping of any waste is strictly prohibited.
Excavated material is transported to the area in the city
planned for such type of materials.

In addit
ion to solid waste, some amounts of hazardous wastes will be produced on the site: like the
remaining from paints, enamels, oiled packaging, oils, material contaminated with oil, insulation
material containing asbestos etc. The procedure on handling this t
ype of waste is defined in the By
-
law on Hazardous Waste Management (Off. Gazette
N
o. 123/97) and the
Ordinance

on Categories,
Types and Classification of Waste (Off. Gazette
N
o. 50/05). All waste has to be collected and handed
over to the company authoriz
ed for collection and transportation of hazardous waste.

Top soil management

Stripped top soil should

not be thrown, but kept on the site for restoration after completion of works.
Any prevailing trees and valuable vegetation should as well be stored and u
sed later for restoration.

Procurement of construction material

Environmentally sound goods and services should be selected. Priority should be given to products
meeting standards for recognized international or national symbols. Traditionally well
-
tried m
aterials
and methods should be chosen before new and unknown techniques.

Site organization and restoration

Construction sites should be fenced off in order to prevent entry of public, and general safety
measures would be imposed. Temporary inconveniences
(traffic or other) due to construction works
should be minimized through planning and coordination with contractors, neighbors and authorities.
After completion of works the site should be restored as planned in the design. All wastes and
machinery should
be removed from the location.

Temporary storage of material (including hazardous materials)





11

Stockpiling of construction material should be avoided if possible. If not, construction material should
be stored on the construction site, and protected from weat
hering. Hazardous materials like paints,
oils, enamels and others should be kept on impermeable surface, and adsorbents like sand or sawdust
should be kept for handling small spillage. Handling with the material should be consistent with the
instructions o
n Material Safety Data Sheets.

Encroachment into neighboring territory

Encroachment into neighboring territory should be avoided if possible. In case where maneuvering
surface is too small, approval for the encroachment should be asked. Any accidental dama
ges of the
neighboring properties should be recovered and brought in the condition as it was prior to the
construction.

Archeological and monuments finds

If encountering archaeological finds during preparation of the site for the construction, the contrac
tor
should stop the works, respond immediately and notify the municipal authorities, the Regional
Institute for Protection of Cultural and Historical Heritage and the project team in the
CTA
.

Working hours

To avoid noise and disturbance of neighbors the w
orks should be conducted in a daily shift, meaning
from 7 am to 5 pm. For other working hours special permits are required.

5.2.3

Operation

During the operation the main emphasis in the office building will be on maintenance and waste
management.

Maintenance

Fo
r the office spaces (and spaces for unspecific activities) it is recommendable to create maintenance
manual to plan, schedule and track activities. Works like regular ventilation should be carried out on a
schedule. Maintenance of ventilation systems, incl
uding duct cleaning, filter cleaning and changes,
and cleaning positive plate receivers and ionizing tips should be routine. Exterior green surfaces
should be attended, watered and fertilized. Access roads regularly cleaned and maintained.

Operation emer
gency plans

While screening pre
-
investment

documents
,

it is concluded that majority of institutions will have in
their storages more than 5000 kg of crude oil or 500 kg gas as energy source. Based on the Law on
Environmental Protection (Off.
G
azette
N
o. 82
/94) and under the Plan of Intervention in
Environmental Protection (Off.
G
azette
N
o. 92/96), it is necessary to prepare Operation Emergency
Plans for these facilities.

Waste management

It is recommendable that each institution
within the maintenance manua
l includes section on waste
management.
If the object is not connected to sewer system on a location, a contract with company
for maintaining septic tanks should be made.

The waste (hazardous and non
-
hazardous) should be separately stored and collected acc
ording to
Ordinance

on Categories, Types and Classification of Waste (
O
ff. Gazette
N
o. 50/05).
Hazardous
waste (which includes toners, el. equipment, etc.)
can be on location stored for maximum one year.
The waste should be handed to the hazardous waste au
thorized company.

Capacity development, training
and
proposed
project organization

Related to conclusions originating from comparing permits procurement procedures and EMP and
bearing in mind administrative organizations and jurisdiction of administrative bodies participating in
the process of issuance o
f permits, integrating existing institutional organization of environmental
protection, it is necessary to arrange activities in accordance to jurisdiction of state and regional
bodies, but as well arrange some new activities for which organization has to
be made up.



The weakest link and most influential part related to waste management and accidents related
to it present the design phase and for that reason a special attention and supervision during
that stage is recommended. A
team of representatives of
CTA and

designer should be formed
and measures recommended in EMP incorporated.



Since the co
nstruction works might not be

extensive, it is not necessary to form special
environmental supervision, but submit EMP in form of Good Construction Practice to
Cons
tructor and make it binding condition. Works could be supervised in form of design
implementation supervision.

The supervising engineer should report to the PIU on the implementation of the mitigation measures
and monitoring plan. The PIU should report sta
tus of the implementation of EMP in the
regular

progress reports.

PUBLIC DISCLOSURE

Due to the expected low environmental impact it is recommended to put the draft this EMP available

Croatian Tax Administration
