04 March 2022

Following Russia's invasion of Ukraine, Crown Estate Scotland makes the following statement regarding the ScotWind leasing process:

"Crown Estate Scotland is committed to taking all appropriate action not to support trade and investment activity with Russia.

"Successful ScotWind applicants are consortia of different project partners. Crown Estate Scotland has carried out an initial check of applicants for Russian ownership and/or registration. This initial check did not uncover any Russian ownership or registration.

"Crown Estate Scotland will require formal assurance from project partners that they will adhere at all times to legal requirements related to sanctions. We continue to work closely with Scottish Government, to ensure we are fully informed and taking appropriate action in what is a rapidly evolving situation.”
