Our Approach

We believe in fostering a positive and engaging culture both internally and externally.

Sustainability is at the heart of our ethos

Having an ethical and transparent supply chain is a matter we take very seriously, particularly as part of a sector that strives for the highest standards of sustainability.

We believe that engaging with the communities who host our projects is key to the development process, as well as protecting and enhancing the natural environment for local wildlife.

We believe our positive and engaging culture is a result of having exceptional people. And that doesn’t happen by accident - it’s intentional and requires work. Having a set of core values act as a guideline to outline the beliefs and behaviours that underpin success at Aura.

Values can be seen in our everyday conversations and interactions. They guide the way we make business decisions and prioritise, how we recruit, manage performance and recognise individuals and teams. Critically, they help build a culture of belonging, where anyone with these core values can thrive and feel valued. This is our intention.

We hold yearly away days where we undertake an activity that contributes towards wildlife restoration and are working towards being completely carbon neutral as a company.

How our incentives have supported our team

"I am fortunate to work with a really wonderful team who are all very talented and inspiring. It makes coming into the office much more fun. The fresh fruit box we get delivered every Monday and the constant supply of chocolates that our office manager keeps topped up also makes coming into the office a worthwhile trip too!"

Chloe Hood

Head of Communications

"I am able to contribute positively to the climate crisis and know that we are actively working on projects which directly help to decarbonise our electricity system for future generations. Also, I love being able to bring my dog, Doug, to the office with me! It meant I didn't need to arrange dog sitting for when he was a puppy and he's become quite the office celebrity now."

Steph Palmer

Senior Project Developer (UK)

"Working at Aura has been a great start to my career in renewable energy. I've had the chance to work in different departments, which has been a fantastic way to gain experience. In my first month I took part in one of our volunteering days. It was a nice way to get to know everyone and afterwards, a couple of us went to the nearby pub (which was well needed after a day of planting trees!)"
