Info

Norwegian Energy Partners, in cooperation with Export Credit Norway, GIEK and Naba, invites the renewable energy industry to a webinar on cost-effective risk management and reporting for anti-corruption, environmental and social impacts (ESI) related to renewable energy projects in developing countries. The webinar will cover topics relevant for both suppliers and project developers.

Increased focus on governance, risk management and compliance as well as environmental and social impacts and other reputational risk factors, amongst financial institutions, governmental organisations, local governments, investors and other stakeholders, has increased the reporting and documentation burden for suppliers and project developers. At the same time, compliance, good governance, supply chain control and corporate social responsibility (CSR) should be equally important to suppliers and project developers.

It can be challenging for companies to know where to find the necessary information related to required standards for reporting, such as ESI assessments (ESIA) and stakeholder engagement. Many companies have expressed concern about costs and time spent on reporting and documentation, having to report things several times in order to meet the different demands from different stakeholders.

In this webinar, we want to provide Norwegian suppliers and projects developers within renewable energy with some insight into how to navigate among various reporting requirements, especially from financial institutions and investors, as well as advice on how to reduce own risk and ensure good governance in challenging markets. Further, we will focus on how to make these assessments cost-effective.
