ESMC’s members have asked whether they should participate in ESG standard systems particularly in the newly established Solar Stewardship Initiative (SSI).

This topic was discussed at the ESMC Annual General Meeting, on March 11th, with the conclusion that the European PV manufacturing companies do not presently view the SSI as a credible response to the issue of forced labour in solar PV supply chains.

Consequently, we encourage our members not to participate in the initiative. Please find our statement, adopted by the ESMC board, outlining the reasoning behind the decision.

ESMC Sustainability Policy Director
