Corporate partnerships

 We partner with companies to bring light to the lives of people who need it most. Our corporate partners, and their employees, play a vital role in ensuring that everyone has access to clean, safe, affordable light.

We are passionate about building partnerships that deliver tangible benefits for our company partners. We help support them on their ESG goals, engage and inspire employees and provide powerful case studies to demonstrate their impact.

In 2021, Statkraft committed £2 million to SolarAid over three years to help develop our new strategy of leaving no one behind to reach the 590 million people in sub-Saharan Africa, who have no access to electricity, with affordable solar powered solutions that make an instant impact on their lives.

“SolarAid is a fantastic organisation with a sustainable and scalable solution that is improving the lives of over 10 million people living in rural Africa. SolarAid offers a future free from the shackles of costly, polluting and dangerous kerosene but they need help to keep momentum going. If you want to help create a cleaner future, I urge you to support SolarAid today.”
