We are fully aware that, in order to create value and build trust, we need to combine our corporate responsibility with stakeholders with the utmost level of sustainability and long-term thinking.
Mindful of the importance that our actions have for the people and environment where we operate, we establish a series of commitments that guarantee wellbeing (current and future) for the people and environments we come into contact with.
About the project
GPG Australia has developed the Hawkesdale wind farm project, which is an approved 23 turbine wind farm located on an area covering about 2,280 hectares in Moyne Shire near the township of Hawkesdale in South West Victoria.
Global Power Generation Australia (GPGA) is the Australian subsidiary of Global Power Generation (GPG), the international generation arm of Naturgy Group (Naturgy). GPG was created in 2014, in order to bring together the international power generation assets and business for the company outside Europe, with the participation of the Kuwait Investment Authority (KIA).
In the spirit of reconciliation, GPG acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
The Hawkesdale wind farm is located on the lands of the Eastern Maar people and we wish to acknowledge them as Traditional Owners.
