Solen Renewable Energy

Corporate Social Responsibility

SOLEN is committed to partner with African governments on their development agenda, focusing on job creation, education and health. To stimulate the emergence of solar ecosystems, we develop hybrid solar power plants in tune with local public policies and aligned with the partner country’s development strategy.

We at SOLEN believe that in all infrastructure projects, there is a significant connection with the people. Hence, it is important to understand the needs of society, especially areas in and around the projects. We believe in creating partnership with the communities so that the benefits from development are aligned to their needs.

We are committed towards working in tandem with our communities and thus running a responsible business. Our relentless efforts involve advancing Corporate Social Responsibility programs towards ensuring continual empowerment of the communities where we work.

CSR Overview

SOLEN’s focus is to support local and regional communities by improving their members’ technical skills and employability, enhancing local infrastructure, engaging in charitable donations, and nurturing financial sustainability.

The process starts with undertaking a detailed Environment Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) for all potential projects. The exercise is aimed at assessing and predicting potential adverse social and environmental impacts and to develop suitable mitigation measures. The outcome of the study helps the CSR team develop its broad framework for social responsibility initiatives which is followed by a detailed community need-assessment exercise to map the baseline data and community expectations.
