Our mission as a company is to power energy independence, and we achieve this mission when we conduct ourselves ethically and transparently. To that end, we condemn all human rights abuses and the use of forced labor in the Xinjiang region and anywhere else in the world, and we stand committed to ensuring that all our vendors engage in ethical sourcing. We require transparency in our supply chain, and we work closely with our vendors to ensure they satisfy our vendor code of conduct." - John Berger, CEO of Sunnova

As a matter of ethical business practices and sourcing, Sunnova requires each company on its Approved Vendor List (“AVL”) to:

  • certify that they (and their suppliers) practice ethical sourcing;
  • certify that they do not engage in human rights abuses in the sourcing and manufacture of the products they sell to Sunnova; and
  • certify that they do not use labor or goods from Xinjiang in their supply chain.

Sunnova will also continue to engage its vendors in discussions and to review available data regarding forced labor in the Xinjiang region to ensure that its supply chain is free from human rights abuses.

Green Financing Framework

Driven by the changing energy landscape, technology advancements, and demand for a cleaner, more sustainable future, at Sunnova we are proud to support the energy transition. Through energy services, we are working to accelerate our ESG impact and to create shared value for our customers, employees, communities, partners, and investors. Consistent with our commitment to sustainable business practices and advancing corporate social responsibility within the solar industry, Sunnova has developed a Green Financing Framework that guides the issuance of our green financings. Sunnova's Green Financing Framework outlines eligible use of proceeds, the process for project evaluation and selection, the management of proceeds, and reporting.

CICERO Shades of Green, a leading global provider of Second Opinions on green financings, has issued a Second Party Opinion on Sunnova's Green Financing Framework, and its alignment with the Green Bond Principles, as well as Sunnova’s environmental credentials.
