To be truly sustainable, it is important that we approach all aspects of our business with sustainability in mind. Organising our approach to sustainability into the widely used Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) themes helps us to report our performance publicly.
Sustainability is more complex than ‘ESG’ alone, it is about embedding responsible and ethical thinking into each business decision as well as our investments, this is something we are working hard to achieve and demonstrate.
Our investment strategies are shaped by strong values that align with international sustainability initiatives. These shape the way that we frame and communicate our responsible business agenda. Below we have provided the key themes that we are addressing now as a priority:
Climate Change and Net Zero
The Sustainable Development Goals
The Eden Project Partnership
People and Wellbeing
Nature and Biodiversity
UN Global Compact Communication on Progress
To seek greater insight into the risks within our solar supply chain, Foresight engaged EthiXbase, a platform that offers a cost-effective and risk-based approach to third-party risk management. The organisation has developed a holistic solution and supply chain risk management programme.
Foresight prioritised its solar supply chain analysis across three key stakeholder groups: panel manufacturers, inverter manufacturers and O&M providers.
We are now looking at other supply chains across our portfolio, to determine where we will benefit from better understanding any risks identified through enhanced ESG due diligence.
