Stellae Energy has adopted UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) within its core business principles. Our commitments based on SDGs are as follows:
Goal 1. End poverty in all its forms everywhere
Addressing poverty is a complex process that should involve dialogue and collaboration amongst companies and with stakeholders. We are committed to respecting human rights and fundamental principles and rights at work by leveraging our supply chains and taking collective action to address decent work deficits. We would like to develop strategies with communities to reduce working poverty and re-think supply chains to transform them into engines of sustainable growth.
Goal 2. End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
Stelllae has adopted following UN Food and Agriculture Business Principles as far as they are applicable in renewable energy context
- Aim for Food Security, Health and Nutrition
We would support food and agriculture systems that optimise production and minimize waste, to provide nutrition and promote health for all people through innovative energy solutions.
- Be Environmentally Responsible
Stellae would should protect and enhance the environment through deployment of green energy solutions globally. In cases where Hydrocarbon based energy is part of solution, significant efforts will be made to reduce GHGs.
- Ensure Economic Viability and Share Value
Stellae will create, deliver and share value across including with the local communities.
- Respect Human Rights, Create Decent Work and Help Communities To Thrive
Businesses should respect the rights of local communities, workers and consumers. They should improve livelihoods, promote and provide equal opportunities.
- Encourage Good Governance and Accountability
Stellae Energy will also behave legally and responsibly by respecting land and natural resource rights, avoiding corruption, being transparent about activities and recognizing their impacts.
- Promote Access and Transfer of Knowledge, Skills and Technology
Stelae promotes access to information, knowledge and skills for more sustainable energy systems.
Goal 3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
Stellae is committed to working with the communities to improve overall health infrastructure, sanitation and access to clean water through availability of clean and sustainable energy sources.
Goal 4. Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all
Stellae through its energy projects commits to improving access to education and learning quality for children, youth and adults: In this regard it will fully commit to developing and strengthening local work forces as soon as practically possible in the operations. Technology and knowledge transfer is critical for human development and Stellae would like to play a critical role transferring know how to countries and communities where its operations are based.
Goal 5. Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
In Stellae we believe your gender should not define or limit the choices you make about what you study, where you work, your career ambitions and how you care for others. Our HR policies cater for the imbalance and ensure we are not limiting opportunities for women in our workforce
Goal 6. Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all
In Stellae we believe the without adequate power, clean water and improved sanitation can be a challenge, we are ready to play our part by providing combined modular scalable units for power, water treatment, and sanitation treatment. This is available as Turnkey/EPCI to Leasing to Reimbursable EaaS (Energy as a Service).
Goal 7. Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
In Stellae we believe that access to electricity is particularly crucial to human development as electricity is indispensable for certain basic activities, such as lighting, refrigeration/cooling, and communications, and cannot easily be replaced by other forms of energy. Use of energy is important in improving people’s standard of living including access to clean water and improved sanitation. As parts of the world are taking advantage of the Internet and Digital technologies and tools, many of these other communities need electricity to access the same benefits for education, business, and commerce.
Goal 8. Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all
Stellae through its green energy projects commits to improving lives of local populations, bringing in knowledge and knowhow, training local work force and paying fair wages. We wish to promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all through green energy revolution.
Goal 9. Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialisation and foster innovation
Fostering Innovation with inclusive industrialisation is in the company DNA. We have committed in all our Government engagements on creating opportunities for all stakeholders and act in the best interests of communities, local partners and financing stakeholders at the time.
Goal 10. Reduce inequality within and among countries
Technology transfer will play a significant role in reducing inequality. Developing countries can and should insist on proper resource allocation and capacity development of big infrastructure projects such as Energy and Infrastructure.
Goal 11. Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
We believe in inclusive development and progress for masses rather than just few. Future should be brighter for all who have capacity and willing to do the hard work to achieve a sustainable, inclusive community.
Goal 12. Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
One major component of a sustainable future is responsible energy, production, efficiency and consumption. Stellae is offering low GHG, green and hybrid solutions to contribute meaningfully towards such a future.
Goal 13. Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
Stellae is providing solutions for multiple industries, sectors and nations in reduction of greenhouse gases through introduction of intermittent renewable energy such Solar and Wind, persistent green energy in the form of Geothermal, reduction of Carbon Dioxide with CCS, new fuels and storage in the form of Hydrogen production and storage, and replacement of Diesel generated powers in remote off grid locations with the introduction of Standalone Power Systems (SPS).
Goal 14. Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development
In Stellae we believe reduction of GHGs in all forms through introduction of Green and Hybrid energy solutions, we believe our proposals will contribute, on a small scale, towards improving pH in the coming decades
Goal 15. Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss
Community based solutions which consider Biodiversity objectives during development of facilities minimising industrial footprint is the future in Green Energy. Stellae will engage local communities prior to any project development to ensure this is fully considered and implemented.
Goal 16. Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels
Stellae strictly abide by the principles of global antibribery law and ensures all its dealings with the Government and Communities is conducted in a transparent manner. Our unique business model of community inclusivity ensures that we legitimate rewards and benefits of development are spread in the society rather than concentrate in the hands of the few.

In Stellae we believe in technology transfer, local capacity building and fiscally responsible practices to ensure a fair share of benefits of any energy project is reaped at local and national levels. This is include emphasis on local partnerships, supply chains, contractors and developing skills in the community. Retraining work forces with new technology and transfer of skill and expertise wherever possible.
