Sustainability

For our people and our planet

Lightsource bp supports the Sustainable Development Goals

It’s time to act now

Climate change, decarbonizing energy, and biodiversity loss are among the complex and interwoven global issues that we face today. These issues have serious environmental consequences directly impacting on both the natural world and people’s lives and livelihoods.

At Lightsource bp, we are taking action to respond to the urgent call to address these issues now through our sustainability strategy aligned to  UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) [7] and [13].

Our core contribution to global sustainability is in decarbonizing the world’s energy landscape through responsibly developed solar projects. However, we have done and plan to do much more. Our sustainability mission statement and framework below sets out Lightsource bp’s sustainability direction and goals.

We are going beyond solar

We are committed to transforming into a climate positive business as we continue to grow, and to maximise the sustainable benefits of our solar projects around the world. As we grow, we will continue to minimise waste, move towards reducing our emissions, protect ecosystems and improve biodiversity. Watch the videos below to see some examples of our work and how we are creating a positive impact across energy, the environment and our people.
