With improved climate-related disclosures, Maxeon Solar Technologies releases its sustainability report for 2022

Maxeon Solar Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: MAXN), a global leader in solar innovation and channels, announced the release of its sustainability report for the year 2022. The report continues Maxeon’s tradition of detailed sustainability reporting aligned to the highest international reporting standards, while increasing Maxeon’s climate-related disclosures by adding a Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) framework.

“As Maxeon launches our third Sustainability Report, I am delighted that our continuous efforts for excellence in sustainability have been recognized this year as we are included in the 19th annual Corporate Knights’ 2023 Global 100 Index of the most sustainable corporations, ranking in the top 1% of all companies evaluated globally,” said Bill Mulligan, Maxeon’s CEO. “At Maxeon, sustainability is core to our business, and we continuously strive to maintain our sustainability leadership in the solar industry.” As global emissions continue to increase, the importance of building products like Maxeon’s that are carbon positive in their environmental impact by enabling customers to avoid emissions has never been more pressing. Maxeon has voluntarily made climate-related disclosures covering governance, strategy, risk management, and metrics and targets in alignment with the TCFD framework to both promote its climate-related initiatives and to generate long term value for Maxeon’s internal and external stakeholders.

Maxeon’s longstanding commitment to being a responsible corporate entity also includes prioritizing the social welfare, human rights and the safety of the people and communities where the company operates. In 2022, Maxeon launched Maxeon Gives in furtherance of these commitments, a program to empower employees to step up and nominate worthy not-for-profit organizations to receive solar panels donated by Maxeon. This program deepens the company’s commitment to United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 7, Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all, and 10, Reduce inequality within and among countries.

Key accomplishments highlighted in the 2022 Sustainability Report include:

  • Launch of SunPower One ecosystem, Maxeon’s complete home energy management experience

  • Commencement of climate risk analysis and TCFD recommendations alignment

  • Achieved Cradle-to-Cradle Certified – Silver designation for Maxeon’s solar panels

  • Launch of Maxeon Gives, a company-wide corporate social responsibility program

  • Collaboration on two research projects with Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS) at National University of Singapore

The 2022 Sustainability Report has once again been prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GR) Sustainability Reporting Standards: Core option, and is aligned to the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB): Solar Technology Project Developers Standard and Singapore Exchange Sustainability Reporting requirement. Furthermore, they have aligned the Sustainability Report to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and continue to be a committed Signatory of the United Nations Global Compact.
