An 'above and beyond' initiative
Neoen is committed to supporting local, environmental initiatives that bring benefits to the areas surrounding our project sites.
Goyder Renewables Zone has transferred ownership of 1,000 hectares at the iconic Worlds End Gorge to the Government of South Australia, paving the way for a new national park in the state’s Mid North region.
The new national park will protect several threatened species of flora and fauna such as the Pygmy Blue Tongue Lizard and the Flinders Ranges Worm-lizard.
Watch this video to learn about the significance of these lands to the Ngadjuri Nation, the Traditional Owners on the lands of which Goyder Renewables Zone is located, the former landowners, Neoen’s project team, the Regional Council of Goyder and South Australia’s Department of Environment and Water.
We lived on this land for a very long time before settlement. But after the settlement, we were taken off. When I look at this country, it makes me feel like I am home. It gives me the connection – the link to my spiritual place.
We, the Ngadjuri Nation, hope that we can share the responsibility of this land with the landowners, with Neoen, and with the Parks people, and that we work in partnership with each other to open up this area.
