Strategy and risk

Risk management and sustainability

Lack of attention to project risks – whether commercial, technical, environmental or social – can undermine your project and your reputation.

Careful consideration of risks at all project stages equips developers, operators, financiers, governments and non-government organisations to make informed decisions about power and water projects. It’s the key to discovering win-win solutions for commercial operation, as well as for safe and sustainable environments and communities.

Managing risks is a critical part of how we manage, operate and maintain our major renewable energy and water assets – including dams, hydropower stations, and electrical infrastructure – and we apply this extensive practical experience to help you design and manage your projects.

From development to operation and beyond, we can help you identify and minimise your project risks while meeting environmental and social obligations and maintaining a focus on long-term performance and sustainability.

We apply best-practice assessment and mitigation of risks using international frameworks and standards throughout all phases of power and water infrastructure development, from initial consideration and option analysis through to pre-feasibility, full feasibility, detailed design, construction and ongoing operations. We also apply these techniques for due diligence assessments of projects of interest to you at any stage.

For the long-term viability of your operations, we can help you with compliance requirements, asset maintenance, resource monitoring, data management, and land and water management activities. And we can help you build resilience into your operations by planning for the potential impacts of human activities or natural factors, such as climate change.

We can also independently peer review other service providers to offer you extra certainty.
