International Hydropower Association

Join us: International Hydropower Association

With hydropower we can address some of the world's most pressing energy challenges. To make an effective impact we need to act now. The window to reach net zero by 2050 is closing.

Join like-minded organisations around the world who help us to promote sustainable hydropower as a clean, green, modern and affordable solution to climate change. With hydropower, we can make net zero goals a reality.

Join us as a member of the association

By applying to become a member of the International Hydropower Association (IHA), companies demonstrate a commitment to our values: a commitment to sustainable, best-practice hydropower. Unless our sector demonstrates that hydropower can be developed and operated sustainably, it will not gain the trust of investors, governments and, most importantly, communities.

Our members are held to higher standards

Membership is more than just paying membership fees. Companies wishing to join IHA need to demonstrate their commitment to our values of sustainability before being accepted as members. This means expressing support for the San José Declaration on Sustainable Hydropower, completing an annual Sustainability Disclosure Form and confirming alignment with the no-go commitment on World Heritage Sites with a duty of care for Protected Areas. Applying companies must also confirm they are not disbarred or placed on the exclusion list of any international institution or major institutional investor with a global mandate.
