We are committed to community engagement that is environmentally sustainable. We contribute 1% of annual revenue to charitable community projects that align with our goals.
In the 2018 financial year, we contributed 1% of revenue to charity Renewable World. Renewable World is a registered charity which tackles poverty using renewable energy. The charity supports the provision of affordable renewable energy services to improve incomes, health and education in the developing world.
Access to affordable and reliable energy services is critical in empowering poor people to lift themselves out of poverty.
Renewable World works to tackle poverty through renewable energy in poor, remote, off-grid communities where financial or geographical barriers prevent private sector solutions being effective.
Renewable World works with local partner organisations to sustainably improve health, education and income-generating opportunities in poor communities in our programme countries.
