Solar Industry Environmental & Social Responsibility Commitment
One of SEIA's top priorities is to help ensure a sustainable solar supply chain globally. In support of this mission, SEIA is taking proactive steps to promote environmental and social responsibility within the industry. SEIA is currently revising the Solar Industry Environmental & Social Responsibility Commitment and a new version will be available soon.
Ensuring an Ethical & Sustainable Solar Supply Chain
The reports of human rights abuse out of the Xinjiang region are reprehensible. SEIA supports efforts in Congress to stamp out these abuses and are taking parallel action to ensure the solar supply chain does not include forced labor. SEIA is strongly encouraging companies to immediately move their supply chains out of the region.
To meet this challenge, SEIA is developing a Solar Supply Chain Traceability Protocol to establish that solar imports do not include products produced in Xinjiang or, if produced in Xinjiang, are free of forced labor. We are also encouraging all SEIA members and other industry participants to sign the Forced Labor Prevention Pledge, indicating that they are opposed to forced labor practices within the solar supply chain.
