Working alongside communities
We assume that our organization is part of a social framework that can strengthen our own capacity or, on occasion, condition and limit our development and competitiveness. We fully support this. Commitment to a more prosperous society is not only compatible but interdependent with enduring business success.
At Siemens Gamesa, our commitment to society is genuine and permanent. Wealth creation and improved quality of life in the communities where we operate is a constant goal of our commercial activity, supplemented by socioeconomic development through our many non-business channels.
Early involvement of stakeholders

When it comes to the planning of our wind energy projects, the involvement of interested parties in the decision-making process is carried out by the public authorities. Various stakeholders can take part depending on the mechanisms established in each country.

Once the most appropriate infrastructure has been chosen, the views of the communities affected by it are taken into account through a consultation process, which varies depending on the country and type of facility in question. Many of these processes, including environmental impact studies for facilities, are governed and conditioned by the granting of building and operation permits.

During the planning and performance of these actions, Siemens Gamesa carries out preliminary consultations. We keep active channels of dialogue open with the communities and interested parties affected in order to identify and address their concerns or interests.
