Stakeholder engagement plays a significant role in the success of Nord Stream 2. Transparent, proactive and respectful dialogue began with the initial feasibility and assessment phases, and we remain committed to building and sustaining constructive relationships throughout the life of the Project.
The stakeholder engagement process in each country is guided by Stakeholder Engagement Plans. These are tailored to the requirements of national legislation, the IFC Performance Standards on Environmental and Social Sustainability, and unique local needs. The plans are also live documents – updated regularly to reflect the evolving nature of the Project.
Nord Stream 2 reaches out to a wide group of stakeholders who may be impacted by or have an interest in our work. Our priority is to share information in a clear and accessible manner, in addition to providing a platform for inclusive and open discussion of stakeholders’ views and concerns.
In all Project countries we collaborate closely with stakeholders, including regulatory bodies, scientific and industry organisations, NGOs, fishermen’s associations, local communities and the general public. In Russia, our engagement also supports a range of livelihood and biodiversity enhancement initiatives as part of our Environmental and Community Initiative Strategy.
Nord Stream 2 strives to ensure that our activities and operations do not cause issues for those living or working near the Project’s facilities. However, should stakeholders have concerns, we ensure that they are addressed through our grievance management process. If you would like us to investigate an issue, please get in touch.
