Community Engagement
Home > Sustainable Development Framework > Community Engagement
Communities surrounding the power plant are the important stakeholders for the Company’s operation  because they have received both positive and negative impacts throughout the project. The community’s acceptance is a significant factor to measure the achievement and the project’s operation.
 
Establishing the community engagement’s procedures and community’s comments acceptance since the beginning of the project can therefore create information communication, understandings and good relationship between the project and communities. In addition, all information receiving from community engagement at the beginning stage of the project are collected and used for a project design, a decision making and possible impacts monitoring during the project’s operation.
 
The Company has collected all comments, resulting from the community engagement and recommendations, to improve its operations and to seek opportunities to work with the local community for a sustainable development. This is a key factor for establishing acceptance and good relationship throughout the project.
