Sustainable Solar Europe 2023

Join us in person in Brussels for the annual gathering of professionals and policymakers working to take solar sustainability to the next level. Topics range from sustainable project development, to tackling sustainable supply chains. This year’s edition will mark the official launch of the Solar Stewardship Initiative. Attendees will get in-depth knowledge of industry best practices, regulatory and policy updates, surrounded by a great environment for networking opportunities.

The Solar Stewardship Initiative: Join the future of sustainable solar

Join us for our webinar on 9 November at 14:00 CET, to learn more about the SSI system, its governance, and how your organisation can join. Following the pilot, the public consultation, and the publication of the SSI ESG Standard, the Solar Stewardship Initiative is now welcoming members (manufacturers, developers, installers, purchasers in the solar value chain), and other stakeholders to apply to the Stakeholder Advisory Group (SAG).  SolarPower Europe and Solar Energy UK launched the Solar Stewardship Initiative in October 2022, with the goal of ensuring and demonstrating responsibility, transparency, and sustainability across the solar value chain. 

Have Your Say on Supply Chain Sustainability

As part of the development of the SSI ESG Standard, the Solar Stewardship Initiative opened to public multistakeholder consultation in Q2 2023. Alexia Ruvoletto, Senior Policy Advisor at SolarPower Europe, presents the draft Standard to participants and explains how interested parties can provide feedback to the first solar supply chain standard of its kind.

How can we drive a more responsible, transparent, and sustainable solar value chain?

The Solar Stewardship Initiative held its launch webinar in October 2022. With introduction from Walburga Hemetsberger, CEO at SolarPower Europe and Giulia Giudi, the Solar Energy UK SSI Co-ordinator, this webinar sets out the SSI roadmap to a complete supply chain sustainability solution. Alexia Ruvoletto, Senior Policy Advisor at SolarPower Europe, takes participants through each step in the SSI journey.
