Clean & Green: Best Practices in Photovoltaics
This report highlights the best practices of photovoltaic (PV) manufacturers to protect workers and the environment during the production of solar panels.
The report is divided into three sections:
1) Environmental, social, and governance considerations used by socially responsible investors and examples of how PV manufacturers are already implementing these practices;
2) Cross-platform technical opportunities;
3) Environmental health and safety risks in manufacturing particular to each technology and the best practices companies are using to mitigate these risks.
Company practices were obtained as responses to a survey distributed to over 100 solar companies internationally. Best practices were determined via consultation with scientists, engineers, academics, and industry consultants.
