In August 2020, Aljazeera.com reported on the Oyfjellet wind power project in Norway. The article alleges, among others, that the wind park threatens the herding livelihoods of the Saami community Jillen Njaarke, and that the Indigenous herders were only allowed to pick between two “equally damaging projects” in prior consultations.

Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited the companies named in the article to respond; their responses are available below.
