Our “Beneficial by Design” Philosophy
SunPower has a closed-loop sustainability strategy that drives our business practices at every stage of our product lifecycle and beyond, extending to our employees and communities around the world.
We proactively work with socially equitable and environmentally vigilant suppliers, and we regularly assess our supply chain for compatible eco-friendly practices.
We endeavor to make smart choices about the materials we use…and don’t use, including seeking out “conflict-free” materials and avoiding materials of concern that could result in hazardous waste.
We work to reduce waste at every opportunity, including taking water conservation measures and seeking Zero Waste to Landfill and LEED certifications for our own factories.
We source heavy materials locally whenever possible and incentivize our employees to reduce their CO2 footprints.
SunPower® solar panels have a uniquely short Energy Payback Time. Plus, SunPower employs an unmatched Light on Land™ multi-purpose land-use policy that enhances the use of natural resources and minimizes impact on surroundings.
We take responsibility for our products throughout their lifecycle and are committed to providing appropriate reuse and recycling options for our products.
We also work to empower communities through education and by providing energy to those in need.
