The concept of Corporate Social Responsibility is deeply ingrained within SN Power’s culture. As a long-term investor we are committed to develop commercially viable plants that also make lasting economic, social and environmental contributions to the societies in which we operate.
To do this successfully in complex emerging markets, we plan, construct and operate our projects in consultation with key stakeholders, including local communities. We work closely with and engage in partnerships with environmental, human rights and development experts. We undertake an environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA), which complies with the World Bank’s and SN Power’s Standards, on all projects prior to any investment decision. Furthermore we are guided in our endeavours by a set of robust business principles which govern all our decision-making processes and business activities. Risk management processes and social development programmes are incorporated into every project we undertake.
SN Power is an active member of the UN Global Compact and Transparency International. The company also works closely with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to deliver sustainable community development programmes.
SN Power is represented in key forums in Norway and internationally where social and environmental issues and developments in areas such as human rights, international labour regulations and corruption, are regularly discussed. SN Power is affiliated with the International Centre for Hydropower (ICH) and is represented on the board of the International Hydropower Association (IHA).
