Our culture

We’re people-focused

Lightsource bp has changed a lot since we started life as 6 people in a small London office. But although we’re now a team of hundreds across the world, our culture and identity remain the same.

Many team members have been working with us for over a decade. Watch our video to hear what they think about 10 years at Lightsource bp.


Solar Diversity Champion Award winners 2022

Diversity award


In 2022 we won Solar Power Europe’s Solar Diversity Champion Award.

We were excited to receive this recognition of our commitment to diversity.

At Lightsource bp, we understand that ‘who our people are’ drives our success, as we put individuals, not simply employees, at the centre of all we do.

Our purpose

Our purpose is to deliver responsible and sustainable solar power to our world.

We know that the energy landscape is changing. At Lightsource bp, we believe renewable energy is the future. And the future is now.

As a global leader in solar, we’ve spent the past decade driving solar forward, and we’re not stopping any time soon. If the world is to combat climate change while meeting rising electricity demand, business can’t continue as usual. We need a rapid shift from conventional to renewable energy sources at scale.
