Our culture and people

The culture and people 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.


VIBES: Volunteering. Inclusivity. Belonging. Equality. Society

At Lightsource bp, we talk about ‘our vibes’. Our VIBES is our culture – agile, diverse, and driven by an entrepreneurial spirit. We encourage individuality and creativity to empower our people to change the world.

We are open and inclusive, and love to be challenged. Together, we’re pushing the boundaries of an ever-changing energy landscape to help make our planet a better place.

Our core values

From our corporate social responsibility to our passion for renewable energy, Lightsource bp works to five core values that shape everything we do.


We create a mindset of safety for ourselves and everyone we partner with – upholding a safe physical, psychological and cultural environment for everyone.


We have the flexibility to change our opinions as we learn. We are open to new ideas and approaches, creating a growth environment.


We enable each other to deliver through teamwork, trust, and respectful communication. We are approachable, inspire each other, and instil confidence in stakeholders.


We ensure sustainability by proactively enabling ourselves and our colleagues to grow. We increase diversity, drive equity, and build an inclusive culture.


We communicate openly and are clear in our own direction and accountability, based on Lightsource bp’s business goals, objectives and priorities.

Diversity. Equity. Inclusion

Diversity, equity and inclusion are more than just words for us. They are the principles that guide how we build our teams, cultivate leadership, and shape our workplace.
