Our sustainability approach

OnPath Energy is a leading UK land-based sustainable energy developer, formerly known as Banks Renewables.​ Sustainability is in our DNA. It’s what we do. 

Our sustainability approach

At OnPath Energy, we firmly believe in a future powered by 100% renewable energy. We understand the urgency of climate change and the need to transition to net zero. And we are committed to playing a pivotal role this transition. 

We believe that an energy system based on renewable energy can help cultivate a more sustainable and prosperous world than the system it is replacing. We design our renewables projects based on this belief. Each project should deliver more for society and the environment than it takes away. Each project must have a net-positive effect, supporting the regeneration of nature and communities simultaneously.

Sustainability at OnPath means: 

  • We support a just transition to net zero that is fair and inclusive for all. 
  • We enhance habitats and biodiversity around our sites in addition to tackling climate change through the generation and storage of renewable energy.
  • We create long-term value, hand-in-hand with our communities, local businesses and landowners. 
  • We prioritise local businesses and products in our supply chain. We seek out business partners that share our vision of a renewable future, and those that share our values.
  • We support and nurture our people, enabling them to flourish and reach their full potential. 
  • We work together as a team and we innovate for new solutions.
  • We hold ourselves to the highest standards to ensure we maintain your trust as we journey together to a greener future. 

Our core values

Our strong company values form the bedrock of our sustainability approach, guiding us in all we do.
