mission

What is our mission, and how are we achieving it?

Our long-term mission is to create utility scale renewable energy projects using multi-technologies, to provide clean energy to communities and businesses both directly and indirectly, and to take large energy users off-grid whilst meeting or exceeding our environmental obligations.

Innova will achieve this mission by continuing to develop, build, and operate a range of innovative, environmentally sustainable, long-term renewable energy solutions.

Innova is the smart future of green energy.

    Our Green

    Commitment

    content-2.jpg?w=1024&h=682&scale

    Identify and implement ways to optimise biodiversity net gain

    All our clients’ sites will deliver Biodiversity Net Gain as required by law, and if you agree, we will proactively find and realise opportunities to exceed those requirements wherever possible. 

    We will continue to identify and implement ways to optimise biodiversity net gain throughout the lifetime of a project. We will monitor, manage, and learn from our experiences. We will feed that learning back into our other projects and share it with others. When the life of our projects comes to an end, we will leave the environment in a better condition than we found it.
