Pamir Energy receives Hydropower Sustainability Standard certification for its sustainable hydropower

The Hydropower Sustainability Standard is the hydropower industry’s independent sustainability certification system. It accredits hydroelectric projects that meet and exceed best practices in a wide range of areas related to sustainable development. By obtaining this certification, Pamir Energy is setting an example of sustainable hydropower development not only in Tajikistan, but also worldwide.

Pamir Energy’s efforts to achieve the highest sustainability standards

“We are proud to lead the way in sustainable hydropower development in Tajikistan and beyond. As part of our efforts to continue to achieve the highest sustainability standards, we are already working towards achieving Hydropower Sustainability Standard Gold certification,” said Amrikhon Raimov, Managing Director of Pamir Energy.

Pamir Energy is committed to providing clean, reliable and affordable energy while protecting the environment and supporting the communities it serves. The Sebzor hydroelectric project is just the start of their journey towards a sustainable future.

The support of the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs for sustainable hydroelectricity

Support from the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) and its Hydropower ESG (HESG) Assessment Fund made Sebzor’s assessment possible. The latter was one of the first beneficiaries of this fund, which aims to increase the sustainable development of hydroelectricity by supporting the assessment of risks and opportunities in terms of the environment, society and governance (ESG).
