Community involvement

It is crucial for us to involve and respect those who live and work where we establish renewable energy projects. The local knowledge about the culture and nature of the area is a great input in planning the layout of the wind or solar farm. 

Local knowledge 

OX2 combines central capabilities spread across our European offices with local collaborative development teams and contractors, ensuring community engagement and project adaptation to local conditions. All projects have a local communication plan to ensure clear and transparent communication through all phases of the project.

Meetings with local stakeholders are held throughout the project's lifetime, from early public hearings to information meetings and open house events during and after construction. We belive it is extremely important to create open dialogue and
show respect for the people who live and work in the local area.

Workers grievance mechanism is available in all projects. It is needed so people working in OX2´s projects can give anonymous feedback about anything (project-, site- or work-related issues) that concerns them. We strive to always provide feedback to those making complaints.

Local community development

OX2 has a clear ambition to provide local jobs wherever possible. Maintaining a close dialogue with local communities is therefore important, not just for anchoring the project but also for engaging the services of local businesses for accommodation, catering, snow clearance, logging and similar activities. Maintaining a dialogue with local residents is also important for identifying local interest groups, such as local fishing associations and hunting groups. Through cooperation with these groups, OX2 is able to help their activities continue as undisturbed as possible while the wind or solar farm is being established. 

Over the coming years, OX2 will maintain its open dialogue with local communities, work with local businesses and increase the spread of knowledge about the climate benefits of wind and solar power. 

Examples of promoting local jobs 


  • Ensure local involvement and a local presence in 100% of our projects.
  • Zero unattended grievance.
