Hydropower projects can have negative social and environmental impacts, including involuntary community resettlement, degradation of water quality, destruction of sensitive sites (environmental, religious) and loss of wildlife habitat.

We evaluate adverse social and environmental impacts of hydropower projects through our ES Risk Framework. We also check the project background, developers and financial institutions involved to ensure that the appropriate sustainability standards are in place before making the decision whether to reject, escalate or approve the transaction.
