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.
Our plants should be developed and operated in a responsible and sustainable manner. We therefore conduct regular assessments in the form of social and environmental audits, reviews and follow-up of site-specific issues. We also implement programmes alongside all our projects to limit the negative impact on local communities and environments and help ensure that the projects deliver social benefits.
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.
