Our energy is changing the world

Products and Processes - SMA Solar Technology AG

Products & processes
Sustainable energy. Right from the start.

The goal is a clean energy supply. But the way that we get there is crucial, too. That is why we make sure that our inverters are produced sustainably. To do so, we not only optimize the processes used at our production facilities but also include the entire supply chain. Our suppliers are qualified in accordance with strict sustainability guidelines. The focus is on each individual component. We don’t just talk about this; we take action. And we have been doing this since 2010.


Environment & energy
Added value with responsibility.

The goal is a cycle. The degree of resource-efficiency of an inverter is determined in the product design phase. As is the question of how successfully the materials it contains can be reused later. We have the future of our products in mind before they are even developed. The same applies to the raw materials and other materials that they are made of and to the cycle of the reusable materials they contain. In order to reduce raw materials, energy, mobility and waste, while increasing the use of renewable resources.
