Local communities

Supporting local people through our solar projects

We invest in local communities where we operate. Developing a solar farm can be a multi year process, and engaging the community is a key part of solar development. 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.

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 codes of conduct.
