Message from the CEO

The SolarEdge Vision
 

As an organization that cares deeply about our employees and the people we work with, we place great importance on corporate social responsibility (CSR). By integrating CSR into our company guidelines, we expect everyone working at or with SolarEdge to adhere to its strict directives and regulations. Our expectations extend to SolarEdge’s partners, subcontractors, and suppliers, who we encourage to reach beyond merely fulfilling basic compliance. We believe in the people we work with, and their ability to make the right decisions when faced with difficult challenges. We encourage all parties to review our CSR guidelines carefully, and to join us in successfully implementing this important mission.
