Managing social and environmental impact
We develop solar projects with potential to impact local communities and the environment. Our activities are conducted in line with international standards for labour rights and working conditions, pollution prevention, community health and safety, human rights, land acquisition and involuntary resettlement, biodiversity conservation, indigenous people, and cultural heritage.
Key guidance: IFC’s Performance Standards, Equator Principles and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Being a trusted business partner
We operate in several emerging markets with complex political and social contexts. Accountability and transparency are key to ensuring ethical and responsible business conduct. We maintain high standards regarding anti-corruption, labour rights and working conditions, human rights, and responsible procurement.
Key guidance: International Labour Organization (ILO) and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Contributing to local value creation
Our solar plants are embedded in local communities for 20–25 years. Solid interaction and good relations with our project neighbours are essential. We always make sure to employ local labour, to identify local needs in our community development programmes, and to maintain open and transparent dialogue with relevant stakeholders.
