We at Shire Oak International are acutely aware of the fact that large-scale infrastructure projects can impact on communities and the environment. Our commitment is to ‘do no harm’. In this regard, the company has incorporated environmental and social safeguards into our project design and implementation that are in-line with the highest international standards.
For every project, community members will be at the core of our delivery model and will be empowered to identify the improvements they need in their areas. We will allocate money to these funds every year that we are operating a lease contract in a community, corresponding to our installed capacity. Each fund will be managed by local and community representatives and organisations.
As part of our ongoing commitment to protecting and conserving wildlife in all the countries we operate in, Shire Oak International will also channel a proportion of our profits to protecting the wonderful habitats of Vietnam. We will give away $ 1,000 per year per every installed MW of solar to conservation efforts, commencing with our support for a Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT) project protecting the Sarus Crane in the Mekong Delta.
