Sustaina­bi­lity

At hep

there is no planet b.

Sustaina­bi­lity

For us, sustaina­bi­lity means much more than genera­ting economic value. We want to preserve our planet – for ourselves as well as for future genera­tions. With climate-friendly electri­city, our solar parks contri­bute to the long-term solu­tion of one of the most urgent global chal­lenges: the protec­tion of our envi­ron­ment through the expan­sion of rene­wable energies.

Inno­va­tion

We love chal­lenges. With ambi­tion, courage, and dili­gence, we succeed in finding new solu­tions toge­ther. Our holistic busi­ness model is our strength: We are experts in deve­lo­p­ment, construc­tion, opera­tion and finan­cing of solar projects. And what we set out to do, we achieve. We were one of the first foreign inves­tors and project deve­lo­pers in the solar markets of Japan and the United Kingdom.

Inno­va­tion

Wir lieben die Heraus­for­de­rung. Mit Ehrgeiz, Mut und Sorg­falt gelingt es uns, gemeinsam neue Lösungen zu finden. Unser ganz­heit­li­ches Geschäfts­mo­dell
(aus Entwick­lung, Bau, Betrieb und Finan­zie­rung) ist unsere Stärke. Und was wir uns vorge­nommen haben, errei­chen wir. So waren wir einer der ersten auslän­di­schen Inves­toren und Projekt­ent­wickler in den Solar­märkten Japan und Großbritannien.

Commu­nity

Our teams in Germany, the USA, Japan and Canada form the basis of our success. They dedi­cate their crea­ti­vity, diver­sity, inspi­ra­tion and passion to their daily work. We value fair­ness, tole­rance and respect, and we realize how important it is to coope­rate, exchange know­ledge and engage in conti­nuous trai­ning. We think ahead and train students as part of their dual study courses.

For a better tomorrow

hep Sustaina­bi­lity Report

As a company we carry a big respon­si­bi­lity – for our inves­tors, our employees, but also for society and the envi­ron­ment.
In our annual sustaina­bi­lity report, we explain our stra­tegic approach, our acti­vi­ties and our goals to drive sustainability.

Our Busi­ness Model is Green

We develop, construct and operate solar parks. Thereby, we increase the share of rene­wable ener­gies in the global energy mix. Our inves­tors actively contri­bute to this world­wide energy tran­si­tion by inves­ting in our alter­na­tive invest­ment funds.

saved through solar electri­city in 2020

We set High Stan­dards for our Work

And we are successful in achie­ving them. The cost-effi­cient tech­no­logy photo­vol­taics combined with our many years of expe­ri­ence in deve­lo­p­ment, construc­tion, opera­tion and finan­cing of solar parks ensure long-term great results.

Princi­ples for
Respon­sible
Invest­ment

We are part of a global network of more than 3,000 inves­tors jointly committed to six ESG princi­ples. To us, it is important to inte­grate ESG criteria in our invest­ment decisions.

We are Part of the Commu­nity Which we Work in

Our busi­ness model is a long-term invest­ment in the local value chain. During project deve­lo­p­ment, we include local citi­zens in the decision-making process. Thereby, uncon­ven­tional solu­tions can be found. During the construc­tion of one of our Japa­nese solar parks, we guaran­teed access to a newly found samurai temple on the site.

We Think Long-Term

When choo­sing loca­tions, tech­nical compon­ents and suppliers, we focus on secu­rity, relia­bi­lity and conti­nuity. Fair wages, good working condi­tions and compre­hen­sive occup­a­tional safety are basic requi­re­ments for us.

Sports with hep
We love sports, espe­cially triathlon, and support leisure and high-perfor­mance sport teams.

Stri­ving for Innovation

It is our aspi­ra­tion to do things better — by doing them differ­ently. We are agile in chal­len­ging situa­tions and we advo­cate for bottom-up approa­ches. In our inter­cul­tural and inter­di­sci­pli­nary teams, there is an inspi­ring atmo­s­phere in which inno­va­tions can evolve. We were one of the first foreign inves­tors and project deve­lo­pers to promote solar energy in the UK and in Japan.

We Take Respon­si­bi­lity Seriously

We are a reli­able partner to our employees. In all of our teams, we encou­rage a coope­ra­tive and inno­va­tive working envi­ron­ment based on equa­lity and trust. We offer various oppor­tu­nities for personal and profes­sional trai­ning to our employees.
