We shape the future. From every perspective.

For 40 years, SMA has been contributing with courage, passion and innovative technologies to realize a clean, sustainable and cost-effective energy supply worldwide. Right from the very outset, we knew that clean energy generation is not simply about the development of the right technologies but also about how they are produced. That is why sustainability has been an integral part of our corporate DNA since the company was founded. We are setting trends through environmentally friendly and resource-saving business practices, the use of renewable energies, transparency, fairness and an honest business policy. In our day-to-day working life, in the company and beyond. So that our planet remains worth living on for future generations.

This commitment is also recognized by the Stiftung Deutscher Nachhaltigkeitspreis e.V. (German Sustainability Award Foundation): SMA is among the selected group of finalists for the German Sustainability Award 2022 - the largest and most prestigious in Europe.

Our goal is to create a cycle

Natural resources are valuable, which is why we want to utilize them as responsibly and sparingly as possible. We leverage our outstanding innovative strength to achieve this. Through new technologies and processes, we ensure that our products and solutions not only require ever fewer materials, but are also more durable and easier to service and recycle. We always look at the value chain as a whole. Because our goal is to create closed-loop cycles in which we reuse as many recyclable materials as possible.

Innovation inspires

Less is more

A world worth having needs not only unspoiled nature, but also clean air. This is why we use not only raw materials sparingly and efficiently, but also energy. Our energy concept across all areas is geared toward minimizing energy consumption, using energy efficiently and covering the remaining demand with renewable energies. With this, we are making a valuable contribution to climate protection and setting an example for our suppliers and other companies.

Energy changes

More than just a job

We are not a big family, but an amazing team with a shared passion. Every single day, more than 3,000 SMA employees practice diversity, respectfulness, fairness and transparency with passion and commitment. In 18 different countries, encompassing different cultures, religions and viewpoints. We learn something new every day and face challenges together. And that is the basis for our success.

Diversity wins

No compromises

We are part of the big picture. So for us, sustainability begins long before we start production. Our suppliers are required to meet strict criteria regarding corruption, ethics, workers’ rights, environmental protection, quality and product safety. We firmly oppose unethical behavior, child labor and disregard for human rights. Both at our locations worldwide and throughout our entire supply chain. We are in constant dialogue with our stakeholders and committed at all levels to a decentralized and climate-friendly energy future.

Responsibility matters
