Global Goals

A world with less bad and more good

Green Energy is based on the desire to drive the green transition through innovative and sustainable products. We believe in a better future and we will do our part to hasten the process.

Sustainability on the agenda

We exist to effect change

Being a supplier of solar solutions and working towards renewable energy can be seen as an goal itself. But our story goes beyond just being a supplier of green energy. It is also a story about having respect for the planet and the people who live on it.

At the heart of our business and our organizational culture lies a commitment to sustainability and responsibility, reflected in growth targets that actively contribute the UN’s 17 global goals.

01. No poverty

Our solar panels are designed for separation and make use of the materials we already have in our hands. Copper which we extract from cable scrap, Indium and Gallium are extracted from TVs, flat screens and mobiles and Selenide is obtained from refining quartz sand. Our policy on recycled materials has meant that we, for example, get a lot of m2 of solar panels out of a single discard iPhone screen.

03. Health and well-being

By establishing clean water sources, we improve hygiene and prevent disease, promoting better health outcomes for communities. Access to clean water not only improves sanitation, but also supports overall wellbeing and reduces the burden of waterborne diseases

07. Our foundation is solar energy

We actively promote clean, renewable energy and advocate for UN Goal 7. With solar energy as our cornerstone, we are dedicated to creating change and contributing to a more sustainable future.

02. No hunger

We support local farming initiatives in Zimbabwe to create community food security and ensure everyone has enough to eat. Through sustainable farming practices and crop diversity, we aim to eradicate hunger and reduce food insecurity.

06. Clean water and sanitation

Our solar-powered wells provide clean water to thousands, ensuring access to this basic human right and improving sanitation.

12. Built for recyclability

Sustainability and circularity are integral to our business model. From the inception of our solar panels, we are committed to minimizing material consumption and maximizing recycling rates to keep resources in circulation. We believe that by adopting circular production and design principles, we can contribute to a more sustainable future in line with UN Global Goal 12.
