SunPower Sustainability

Editors Note: In 2020, SunPower announced the completion of the strategic spin-off of its manufacturing division into a separate business named Maxeon Solar Technologies, Ltd. As a result, SunPower has expanded its offerings to drive future growth. The SunPower Equinox® system now offers multiple panel options, including front- and back-contact panels, all of which are responsibly and rigorously quality tested to provide the best energy solution for your home.

At SunPower, we empower our customers to generate their own clean, affordable, emissions-free electricity. We also believe in creating solar products that are as sustainable as the clean energy they produce.

For example, only SunPower offers Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Silver solar panels, which our employees make in France and Mexico. And we’ve taken steps to reduce our environmental footprint by cutting down on packaging, waste, water use and more at our facilities around the world. It matters to us that we are serving our customers in the most environmentally responsible way.

This infographic demonstrates how much SunPower has accomplished toward achieving our sustainability goals and minimizing our impact on the planet. By no means are we resting on our laurels in this respect. There’s much more that we can and are planning to do, but we’re very proud of what we’ve done so far to change the way our world is powered.
