Strengthening rural partnerships – Sponsoring Badminton Horse Trials

For the second year running, Lightsource bp is proud to have sponsored the Badminton Horse Trials, one of the largest equestrian events in the world. The partnership between Lightsource bp and Badminton is a long-running one, with a rich and successful history. We’re dedicated to forming lasting relationships with communities, and sponsorships like these demonstrate the value that renewable energy investment can have for events and entities across rural communities.
