HPC Power Plant CSR Program

HPC Power Plant, operated by Hongsa Power Co., Ltd. or HPC which is Banpu Power’s joint venture in Laos, is committed to creating a significant improvement in the income and living standards of the families that were relocated to areas provided by the government, with the goal to alleviate poverty and raise their living standards within 3 years. In order to achieve that, HPC has set a comprehensive action plan to provide the community with a proactive health surveillance system, highland agricultural learning centers, occupational development programs, cooperatives for local communities, readiness for emergency response, and empowerment of local female workers in the mine.

In 2023, HPC provided financial aid totaling LAK 80 million through the Central Disaster Protection Committee of the Emergency Operation Center to support flood victims in three southern provinces of Lao PDR, namely Khammouane, Savannakhet, and Bolikhamxai. It has also provided educational support for local youth through the New Graduate Internship Program (NGIP), which has operated since 2011. In 2023, HPC awarded five scholarships to students in various fields of study, totaling LAK 70 million.
