We systematically consult with a wide range of local stakeholders, such as local authorities, community representatives, civil society organisations and representatives of indigenous peoples.
The consultation activities take place during the life-cycle of our projects, from early design phase until the operation phase. Through dialogue and collaboration, we work to find solutions to prevent, reduce and manage any negative effects.
In India for instance, we have opened a Public Information Center at the Tidong hydropower site and held several consultation meetings about crop compensation. An important target of any project development is therefore ensuring that any loss of land, production or access to resources is compensated in a sustainable way.
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.
Tidong hydropower plant
The Tidong Hydropower Project is a 150 MW run-of-river hydropower project on a tributary of Sutlej River in the Kinnaur District of Himachal Pradesh.
Through all of Statkraft’s activities, we aim to create value for society, the environment, and our company simultaneously.
