Sunworks Launches ESG Reporting Program

  • Assigns Management and Board-Level Oversight to ESG Program
  • Intends to Launch Inaugural ESG Report in Early 2024

Sunworks, Inc., a leading provider of solar power and battery storage solutions for residential, agriculture, commercial, industrial, and public works markets, announced that it has launched an integrated Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) reporting program, consistent with the Company’s long-term commitment to value creation through sustainable business practices.

In conjunction with the launch of the program, Sunworks has developed a corporate responsibility committee, named the ESG Advisory Committee, tasked with the management of all ESG activities, which will report to a dedicated, Governance and Sustainability Board-level committee responsible for program oversight. The ESG Advisory Committee is comprised of a diverse mix of accomplished Sunworks employees from throughout the organization, ensuring that the core values of Sunworks are firmly embedded within its ESG reporting function. Sunworks expects to issue its inaugural ESG report in early 2024, prepared in accordance with established, generally accepted ESG reporting frameworks. The Company intends to issue its annual ESG report at the conclusion of an internal audit of its reported data.

Beginning with Sunworks’ inaugural ESG report, the Company intends to introduce measurable, multi-year targets that prioritize its sustainability objectives, with an emphasis on decarbonization and climate change, diversity and inclusion and the betterment of communities where it operates.

As a leading provider of photovoltaic and battery-based power and storage systems for the residential and commercial markets, Sunworks provides cost-effective, sustainable powering solutions. Since 2017, Sunworks systems have generated more than 195 megawatts of low-cost, reliable solar energy, serving to significantly reduce reliance on carbon-based sources of energy generation in communities across the United States. The Company believes these systems have prevented greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions totaling 939,713 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e).
