Atmosfera has joined the UN Global Compact


In May 2023, Atmosfera became the first solar energy company in Ukraine to join the UN Global Compact, the world’s largest community of responsible businesses. The company has committed to adhering to the UN Global Compact’s Ten Principles in human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption.

Atmosfera is a leading Ukrainian company that designs, installs, and maintains solar power plants for households and businesses.

In 16 years, the company has taken 33% of the market share of all home solar power plants, developed the largest network of installers, which includes 500 companies, and built 12,000 solar power plants with a total capacity of 500 MW.

Atmosfera’s team consists of 150 employees and is represented in Ukraine (Kyiv, Lviv, Dnipro, Kharkiv, Odesa, Khmelnytskyi, Kherson), Poland, Georgia, Lithuania, and Serbia. The company’s headquarters is located in the energy community in Kyiv.

Oleksiy Badika, Founder and CEO of Atmosfera, emphasized:

“We have never been afraid to take responsibility – for the relationships with our partners, for the customer experience that customers and users of solar power plants receive, for the development of the entire solar energy industry. Today, we feel this is no longer enough and must take even more responsibility. Businesses should bring not only profit but also social benefit. Our activities should be focused on the safe future of our children, the preservation of the environment, and the sustainable development of all humankind. That is why we decided to join the UN Global Compact.”

Over the 16 years of its operation, Atmosfera has trained 1200 solar power plant designers and installers by partnering with technical universities across the country. Cooperation with universities is crucial for the professional community’s sustainable development and for ensuring a high-quality customer experience. Atmosfera has co-founded an industry union to help the state shape legislation that will promote the industry’s sustainable development. The company is also constantly working to raise awareness among solar energy consumers.

Atmosfera’s main areas of sustainable development include building a sustainable energy system in Ukraine with clean energy, forming partnerships for sustainable development, providing quality education, and promoting decent work and economic growth.

The company sets ambitious goals for the coming years: promoting sustainable development of cities and communities in the context of post-war recovery, ensuring responsible consumption, and combating climate change and its consequences.

“We understand that our joining the UNGC is only the beginning of a great deal of work on the way to global environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) standards. The team has a lot of training ahead of them, new challenges and opportunities that this partnership opens up,” comments Olena Sukhodolska, Public Relations Manager at Atmosfera.

In May, the company’s first employees will start training in the Climate Ambition Accelerator, which aims to help businesses set science-based goals in the transition to net zero by 2050.
