Sustainability is about balancing various considerations. We focus on creating renewable energy while taking care of the environment and climate.

Cloudberry assesses greenhouse gas emissions throughout the lifecycle of our hydroelectric power plants, sun and wind farms. We annually report CO2 emissions in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol standard. We assess our operations in line with the EU Taxonomy for Sustainable Economic Activities and are prepared for our hydroelectric power plants and wind farms to be reported in accordance with the requirements of this classification system.

We have identified and assessed our climate-related risks and opportunities in line with the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). Read the report here.

Hydro energy

Hydropower plants have no direct CO2 emissions and are considered one of the most environmentally friendly methods of power generation. However, the development and operation of hydropower plants impact watercourses.


In Norway, where hydropower has been produced for over 100 years, the operations are closely regulated by the state and licensing authorities. Cloudberry complies with these regulations by considering minimum water levels, monitoring flow patterns and biodiversity, and implementing measures as needed.

Wind energy

Wind parks affect the environment visually and occupy land. Wind parks depend on favorable wind conditions, so they are usually located in elevated terrain or open landscapes.


Cloudberry emphasizes open dialogue with the local community during project establishment, provides thorough information, and plans for minimal impact after operation starts.

We prefer larger and fewer turbines to reduce space requirements, visibility, noise levels, shadow effects, and the risk of ice throw in cold weather.

Environmental studies are conducted carefully to identify and minimize the impact on wildlife. The project only proceeds if the risk level is acceptable. Learn more about our strategy, priorities, and results in our sustainability report.

Solar power

Solar power is a clean, accessible, and infinite energy source. With the world's growing energy needs, solar power will play an increasingly important role in the global energy system.


Solar parks require large areas. Cloudberry prioritizes selecting sites with minimal impact on existing land uses, such as avoiding pristine natural areas and valuable agricultural land. We also strive to minimize visual impact by integrating solar parks into the landscape in an aesthetically pleasing manner.
