Creating a positive social impact for our people, partners and communities

Lightsource bp supports the Sustainable Development Goals

Diversity. Equity. Inclusion

They’re more than just words for us. At Lightsource bp, they’re the principles guiding how we build our teams, cultivate inclusive leadership, and create diversity in the workplace — where our people are comfortable bringing their authentic whole selves to work.

We’ve taken steps to solidify our commitments to diversity, equity and inclusion and these are published in our diversity, equity and inclusion statement. The statement, and our wider diversity, equity and inclusion framework have been devised by a committee of Lightsource bp employees from all areas of the business – empowered and endorsed by our leadership.

These commitments have been made by our people, for our people.

A culture of openness

Our success is built on people and, over the years, our inclusiveness has created a vibrant culture that’s working to tackle issues like gender equity and unconscious bias — to continue improving the wellbeing of our people and make a positive change. We’re proud of who we are, and we want to share our culture and attitude with the communities and businesses that we work with, as well as the solar industry at large.

Our careers website showcases the very best of what Lightsource bp is — from the experiences of our people, our commitment to rewarding and recognising hard work, and our ongoing work to listen, measure and continually improve as an employer.

Supporting local communities through our solar projects

Lightsource bp’s solar projects are in place for the long-term with most projects staying over 25 years. It’s important for us to assess any opportunities to go further beyond solar power and make a difference in the local community. These range from contributing to local tax revenue, creating construction jobs and empowering students through education. Download the attached leaflet to read more about how we get involved in local communities through the development of our solar projects across the globe.



In addition to empowering local communities across our solar farms, we set up the Lightsource Foundation in 2014. In partnership with World Vision, we supported the community of Koh Krolor in Cambodia for seven years, installing solar panels on schools and health centres and raising over £700,000 for community initiatives and child sponsorship. We’re now supporting the community of Sarlahi, in Nepal. Take a look at the video below to find our more about the impact we had in Koh Krolor.


Ethical responsibility for our business and supply chain

Our teams work hard across the business to ensure we prioritize social and human rights and environmental considerations into how we do business across the world.

We are focused on creating an ethical supply chain that focuses on the need for corporate social responsibility, to ensure all parts of our business are carried out in a way that treats our workers and the environment ethically.
