Our social development programmes are designed to minimise and mitigate the social impacts of our operations while bringing benefits from our activities to the local communities.
We work with a wide range of community and social development initiatives in the different countries where we operate. In Chile for example, we partnered with the INACAP Technical Training Center and Technological University of Chile to train 40 local people in basic infrastructure maintenance. Our programmes focus on agriculture, improved market access, supporting relevant health campaigns, educational support and skills and leadership training.
We believe that as we lead the shift towards renewable energy, we should also do our business in a way that creates shared value for both us and the countries and communities we operate in.
Statkraft has been present in Chile since 2014, operating two hydropower plants and developing hydropower and wind projects.
Through all of Statkraft’s activities, we aim to create value for society, the environment, and our company simultaneously.
