HCPL is working together with Bernard (Austria), Mott MacDonald UK and SWECO in various projects. Similarly, HCPL has close contacts among the local and international experts whenever required. HCPL is active member of the Nepal Hydropower Association.
Business Environment and Related Risk
HCPL is fully financed on Equity. The company doesnt have any type of bank debt and has sufficient clients to sustain at present. The development of Hydropower project in the country is slow because of the political environment and financial constraints. For sustained growth, HCPL has explored alternate markets and has secured Engineering works in Kenya. Further, HCPL has plans to take over the more local and international projects. Considering this, HCPLs financial risk on sustainability is substantially low. HCPL has already been able to establish its lead position in the Engineering Consultancy Business, mainly in water resource projects which help to establish and grow HCPL with minimum risk.
At present, HCPL is concentrated mostly on its sister organizations projects, so HCPL has to compete for getting the local and international projects in future to cope with the concentration of risk. The risk in consulting business in hydropower sector could be overcome once Hydropower projects development gears up in a real sense for construction at field.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
From the beginning of consulting services of HCPL, HCPL has contributed on corporate social responsibility like support on different aspects for the benefits of locals and socio-ecological system. Few highlights of CSR are as follows:
