Corporate Policy

We are a global group in the renewable energy industry. Our focus is on manufacturing and selling crystalline solar power technology. From raw silicon, wafers, cells, and modules to recycling and turn-key solar power plants of all sizes, SolarWorld incorporates all stages in the value chain. Our group strategy is based on sustainable company management.

Our aim is to constantly increase the company value and become the technology and quality leader in all areas of the solar value chain while being an extremely attractive employer for our employees.

We make careful use of the resources available to us and cultivate our business relationships to meet the demands of the global market, our customers, and our shareholders in terms of uncompromising quality, environmental protection, occupational health and safety, continuous improvement, and proactively developed products, processes, and services.

We develop, produce, and sell products that contribute greatly to sustainable and environmentally friendly development in the world. We create an atmosphere of mutual appreciation and open communication and ensure a safe and healthy working environment.

We owe our productivity, creativity, innovation, and strength to the people who work for us. The safety and health of our employees, customers and suppliers is a top priority.

We advocate safety, quality, environment, and health conscious behavior and expect our employees to act responsibly and independently by actively and continually involving them in improvements. We control and monitor the workflows, activities, and measurable goals using an integrated management system, and the corporate management regularly evaluates the performance of our products and processes.

To us, complying with all legal provisions and requirements, minimizing risks and environmental impact, recognizing and reducing potential hazards, and living up to a high safety standard are our values.

We go beyond what is legally required and are committed to following the SolarWorld code of conduct throughout the Group. This policy aims to reinforce cooperation among all those responsible in our Group, in all areas, and on all levels and to promote dialog with interested public and private institutions.
