Social responsibility

Sustainability goals

We support the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

We are committed to creating an equitable business that creates a positive social impact for our people, partners, and communities.

We do this through a focus on an inclusive and safe company culture, an ethical supply chain, and strong community engagement.


Our culture and people

The culture and people at Lightsource bp make us who we are. We’re values-led, passionate about diversity and inclusion, and care deeply about creating a safe and healthy place for people to work.

This approach of openness and integrity shines through our entire business, felt by our colleagues, customers, partners, and within the communities that we work.

Local communities

Supporting local people 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 include contributing to local tax revenue, creating construction jobs and empowering students through education.

Read our Sustainable Communities leaflet to discover more about how we get involved in local communities through the development of our solar projects across the globe.

You can also read about some of our community partnerships in the USA.

The Lightsource Foundation

We are about more than just profit. We also recognise our responsibility to pass our success on to people and communities in need of support.

In 2014 we created the Lightsource Foundation. Now, with World Vision, we’re working towards a better future for people across the world.

Human rights

We are committed to respecting human rights and act ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships. We implement and enforce effective systems and controls that reduce the risks of modern slavery occurring in our business or supply chain.

These commitments are published in our Human Rights Policy, our Modern Slavery Statement, and our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics for Counterparties.
