The Solar Scorecard Project believes that we still have time to ensure that the PV sector is safe for the environment, workers, and communities.
Our mission is to provide a resource for consumers, institutional purchasers, investors, installers, and anyone who wants to purchase photovoltaic (PV) modules from responsible product stewards. The Scorecard reveals how companies perform on the Solar Scorecard’s sustainability and social justice benchmarks to ensure that the PV manufacturers protect workers, communities, and the environment.
The PV industry’s continued growth makes it critical to act now to reduce the use of toxic chemicals, develop responsible recycling systems, and protect workers throughout global PV supply chains.
Many PV companies want to produce truly clean and green energy systems and are taking steps to implement more sustainable practices. The Solar Scorecard Project is committed to helping these companies achieve that goal. At the same time, we need to create and enforce policies that ensure the safety and improve environmental performance of the entire sector.
