Find below detailed information about the comprehensive Community Engagement and Benefit Sharing Plan associated to the project during the Construction and Operation phases.


Community engagement and benefit sharing plan (CEBSP)

As part of the commitments associated with the Berrybank 2 Wind Farm project, a Community Engagement and Benefit Sharing Plan has been implemented.

This plan is designed based on reference guides such as the ones published by DELWP and the Clean Energy Council. Best practice community engagement is a core part of our corporate philosophy and approach to business. For more information, please find our Corporate Responsibility Policy and Corporate Social Commitment:

We are continuously working to translate these principles into real, tangible action in the Berrybank region through a clear plan for continued effective engagement as the wind farm is built and operated. Our approach is motivated by a strong commitment to engage with the Berrybank community during the all-project phases and aimed to continue building a social license to operate with wide-ranging positive impacts across the region.

Community benefits and commitments

We are committed to building strong, trusting relationships with the community that surround the wind farm as well as with all the relevant stakeholders through the implementation of our Community Engagement and Benefit Sharing Plan. This is essential to establishing a social license to operate. Our company is financially supporting the delivery of this plan by investing into the community over the life of the wind farm as well as providing other non-financial benefits that will be achieved through key initiatives described below:

  • Neighbourhood Benefit Program – to assist neighbours closest to the wind farm to mitigate the potential impacts during the Construction and Operation phases.
  • Community Development Fund – to be implemented during the operation phase of the wind farm to develop priority local community projects.
  • Local School Program – including educational sessions on renewables, visits to operating wind farms, etc.
  • Sponsorships – supporting local businesses campaign, local organisations, etc.
