Download the ESG Tool
The Hydropower Sustainability Environmental, Social and Governance Gap Analysis Tool (HESG Tool) enables project proponents to identify and address gaps against international good practice
The HESG Tool is based on the framework of the Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Protocol, assessing projects according to environmental, social and governance criteria.
The tool is divided into 12 sections which are compatible with IFC Environmental and Social Performance Standards and the World Bank’s new Environmental and Social Framework.
The tool was developed by the International Hydropower Association (IHA) under the mandate of the Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Council, with the support of the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO).
