Best Practice Principles for Clean Energy Projects

The 10 principles, designed for the clean energy industry, government and communities, cover such things as ensuring projects provide economic and social benefits, mutual respect, clear communication, cultural and environmental considerations, landcare, business employment opportunities and free, prior and informed consent (FPIC).

These Principles have been framed to help First Nations communities to achieve those goals and more.

They should also be followed by clean energy companies themselves and the governments that regulate projects.
