Madrid, 18 March 2021
Solaria, a leading company in the development and generation of solar photovoltaic energy in Southern Europe, has today announced its recent adhesion as a Signatory Partner to the United Nations Global Compact, the world's largest corporate sustainability initiative through the Spanish Global Compact Network.
This milestone reinforces the company's commitment to sustainability by strengthening and aligning its strategy with the Ten Universally Accepted Principles in the areas of human rights, labour standards, environment and anti-corruption, and by adopting measures in support of the United Nations goals currently embodied in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the 2030 Agenda.
Enrique Diaz Tejeiro, Chairman of Solaria, said: "For Solaria, sustainability is what we are, a way of doing business and the path that guides us. In short, sustainability is a philosophy for us. We believe that we play a very important role in meeting sustainable goals and we are very proud to be able to collaborate with the initiative".
As a 100% renewable energy producer, Solaria has positioned itself as one of the major drivers of the energy transition, in line with its global commitment to help facilitate change and sustainable development. To this end, the company has an ESG policy based on three pillars: maximising a positive impact on the natural environment, promoting socially responsible behaviour and guaranteeing integrity and ethics in all its relationships.
The company promotes actions that help to drive the transition towards a sustainable energy model and the fight against climate change. Not only through its direct activity as a developer and generator of photovoltaic energy, but also from a holistic perspective in its relationship with the environment, ranging from efficient and responsible use of natural resources, to the preservation of biodiversity and promotion of the circular economy.
