Our comprehensive in-house project development process

Our in-house Global Development Standard™ means project deliverability

Our world-class Global Development Standard sets us apart from every other developer in emerging energy markets.  This rigorous system of procedures has won us planning consent for 48 projects across four continents.  It has made us preferred partners for Governments, local partners and investors.  With Mainstream, they know there will be no curveballs and no surprises.

Our Global Development Standard is a unique initiative – a project development process that is benchmarked against the highest international standards.  It is a comprehensive set of checks and disciplines and is the foundation of every project we undertake.  The Standard methodically eliminates risk at every stage from greenfield through to commercial operation, ensuring outstanding quality and consistency.

In new and developing energy economies, our partners need certainty.  They recognise that our meticulous attention to detail is the key to navigating complex consenting processes.  When they see our name, they know they are getting the gold standard in project development.

  • Our Global Development Standard is benchmarked against IFC Environmental and Social Standards and Equator Principles.
  • It is in line with the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the World Bank Group Environmental, Health and Safety Guidelines.
