Committed
to the environment

We are particularly attentive to the environment in which we operate and always examine how best to integrate our operations. Our high standards involve an environmental survey for all projects and whenever we deem necessary, we exceed legal requirements. We use environmentally-friendly technology, which counteracts the environmental impact of our plants. All our business partners abide by the standards set by the group.

  • 100,000 ground screws

    Thanks to an innovative technique, the solar panels on the Cestas site in France are screwed into the ground. No concrete was used, which means the site can be returned to its natural state at the end of the plant’s life.

  • Active reforesting policy

    We planted 250 hectares of trees in the Gironde area of France, which corresponds to the surface area covered by our solar plant in Cestas thanks to funds lifted thanks to the project. In Seixal (Portugal), we replanted more than1,000 trees and shrubs which provide a habitat for local animals and ensure that the plant blends in with its environment.

  • Wildlife preservation

    Wherever we set up our power plants we pay particular attention to preserving the wildlife on site. We may down tools during breeding season or design the building to avoid affecting habitats.
