ESG standards are designed to evaluate a company’s performance in three key areas:
- Governance and Business Ethics
- Human and Labour Rights.
SSI members from manufacturing sites must commit to completing an ESG assessment of two sites within 12 months by an SSI-approved AB. The SSI Assurance Process is implemented at a site level. A ‘site’ comprises several activities in the same geographic area and under the same management control.
Demonstrated commitment to ESG standards is particularly crucial for industries like solar PV, which is the fastest-growing energy technology in the world, and offers a rapid solution to decarbonise and protect citizens and businesses from volatile energy prices.
