Our mission

The Akuo Foundation was created by Akuo Energy, a French-based independent renewable energy producer that operates clean power plants worldwide, generating electricity from such renewable energy sources as wind, solar, hydro and marine power, as well as biomass and biogas.  

Under the aegis of the Fondation de Luxembourg, the Akuo Foundation initiates and supports not-for-profit sustainable development projects. In turn, it offers partners the opportunity to help the underprivileged and contribute to environmental protection around the world. The Foundation’s mission encompasses four key goals:
