SunPower E-series and X-series solar panels are now Cradle to Cradle Certified™  Silver.

Cradle to Cradle Certified is a great accomplishment for any product, but we’re especially honored that our E-Series and X-Series solar panels are the world’s first and only to receive this distinction. The principles for certification include sourcing materials safe for humans and the environment, and ensuring that these materials are recycled at the end of the products’ life. Also emphasized is the importance of honoring the natural environment and the people who create the product, as well as the use of renewable energy and preservation of water.

“SunPower takes a holistic approach to sustainability, ensuring that our E-Series and X-Series solar panels not only provide sustainable energy, but are manufactured in a very sustainable way. We’re extremely proud of this certification and look forward to extending it across our facilities.”

– Marty Neese, COO, SunPower

Unlike single-attribute eco-labels, the Cradle to Cradle Certified Products Program is a comprehensive product quality standard that evaluates product design, manufacturing and sourcing practices as well as corporate citizenship and ethics principles. C2C Certification is a symbol of our commitment to change the way our world is powered by providing energy solutions that are renewable and beneficial by design.

Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM is a certification mark licensed by the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute.
