"The nomination is a great appreciation and incentive for all SMA employees to continue driving the energy transition in the future with technological innovations and solutions and our comprehensive sustainability strategy."

"Our finalists are driving the transformation and are contributing to its implementation with high ecological standards in production and special social commitment in the supply chain. Can companies save the world? A look at the DNP finalists shows how powerful their impact can be as drivers of change."
