Safe and responsible solar

We believe that sustainability and social responsibility is crucial for long-term business success. We are determined to make a difference within the communities we work with and remain accountable to those principals.

Environmental impact assessments

Careful consideration is given to the way in which our solar projects are constructed. Environmental impact assessments play a key part in ensuring our projects integrate harmoniously into their surroundings.

 

ISO certifications

Quality and safety are at the core of everything Lightsource BP does, and as such we take great care to follow the criteria set out by the International Organization for Standardization, or ISO. We hold certifications for and adhere to the ISO 14001: 2015 and ISO 18001:2007. We are currently preparing for the new ISO 45001.

Educational resources

We’ve developed a range of teaching resources for students to learn more about renewable generation and climate change. Our customers in the educational sector span from primary schools to universities, and we pride ourselves for providing suitable resources for all our clients. We frequently open our projects to visits from educational and special interest groups worldwide.

 

Developing a local and skilled workforce

Our partnerships typically span the entire lifecycle of a project, often upwards of 20 years. This long-term commitment ensures we establish a local and skilled workforce to maintain our projects for the duration. We are global leaders in solar operations and maintenance.

 

Championing biodiversity

We work actively within the agriculture sector and recognise the importance of sustainable land management and the safeguarding of pollinators. Where appropriate we implement measures to encourage biodiversity like planting and seeding. On some projects we even harvest our own solar farm honey!

Lightsource Foundation

Since 2014, we have supported the community of Koh Krolor in Cambodia. Alongside local volunteers, we focus on long-term projects, designed to develop and transform the community, addressing the biggest challenges they face. Our main areas of focus are education, health & nutrition and child protection, and via payroll giving and fundraising we have raised USD 448,000 so far. In addition to the money raised, we also installed rooftop solar panels and battery systems on two of the community schools. These generate electricity that powers fans and computers to help pupils study, and irrigation systems to boost agriculture.
