Use and management of water resources
By using water for power generation, we play an important role in managing this common resource. Our ambition is to be recognised as a company with a responsible water management practice.
In the development and operation of our hydropower plants, we engage with communities to promote better use of water resources and water regulation structures. In Turkey for example, we coordinated with local communities to improve efficiency in irrigation schemes downstream of the Kargi dam and have helped farmers upstream with new agriculture initiatives including beekeeping.
