One of the top priorities of AGL is to avoid or reduce environmental impacts incurred from the project activities. With the help of experienced local and international professionals, the company spares no effort to follow the mitigation hierarchy (Avoid, Reduce, Remedy, Offset) and stave off even the slightest adverse environmental impacts that may arise from the company’s construction activities.
Before commencing Shuakhevi HPP construction work, Georgian and international specialists carried out detailed studies in line with Georgian Legislation, international standards, and best practices. Based on the results of these studies, the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment Report was developed to assess possible direct and indirect impacts that the planned activities may have on the health and safety of human beings, local flora and fauna, soil, air, water, and climate.
The Shuakhevi project is the first hydro project in Georgia developed in line with International Financial Institution requirements in the field of land acquisition, involuntary resettlement and stakeholder engagement. The project has been designed in such a way that minimized social impact and avoided physical relocation. AGL developed a Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy that sets out commitments and responsibilities as a Developer to ensure long-term socio-economic development of the project affected area. In order to have direct access to project information and address locals’ complaints in a timely manner, AGL set up public information centers in each municipality.
During the construction phase, the Company implemented a number of CSR Projects with the aim to:
AGL values the well-being of each person engaged in the Project and recognizes the project has a duty to care of various stakeholders. The Company ensures the protection in terms of health, safety and welfare of all personnel engaged in the project and others, including the general public, who may be affected by the construction and operations. Safety is considered to be the responsibility of all employees.
