Solarus seeks to deliver on the following social and environmental objectives:
Reducing energy poverty by providing access to efficient,
low-cost and environmentally sustainable electrical and thermal energy.
Addressing climate change by reducing global dependency on fossil fuel-based energy sources and increasing the use of low-carbon C-PVT technology.
Reducing exposure to local air pollution in developing countries by displacing common water heating practices that rely on the burning of coal and biomass.
Creating local employment opportunities in developing countries in manufacturing,
assembly, distribution and installation.
Goal one: end poverty in all its forms everywhere
Fundamental to Solarus’ market approach is the objective of promoting local employment opportunities in developing countries for those who need it most.
Goal seven: ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
With a conversion efficiency of 70% (combined heat and electricity), Solarus stands out as a clear industry leader in support of this goal.
Goal eight: promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, and decent work for all
Renewable energy is a global growth industry with immense untapped potential. Through our training, low- or unskilled individuals will become sought-after professionals.
Goal nine: Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialisation, and foster innovation
The renewable energy products Solarus markets are the result of extensive research and development. This is sustainable innovation in its truest sense.
Goal ten: reduce inequality within and among countries
Energy poverty remains an intrinsic component of inequality – both material and social. By providing affordable, grid-independent energy and employment opportunities, we hope to uplift individuals and communities.
Goal thirteen: take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
The global trend of populations transitioning from rural to urban lifestyles is most pronounced in the developing world. By providing a clean, renewable alternative energy source Solarus is actively diverting their burgeoning energy demand from mature, typically greenhouse gas-intensive, sources and thereby helping to combat climate change.
