Climate Change and Emissions
Environmental Management System
As the largest solar provider in the United States, we hold ourselves accountable for managing all our environmental impacts in a way that improves the wellbeing of the planet. This commitment to develop and implement an environmental policy and an environmental management system (EMS) prioritizes continual improvement. We also study our environmental impacts across our value chain so that we can define environmental performance metrics and improvement targets. In 2021, Sunrun started working with vendors to make utility reporting more robust, which has resulted in significantly improved data for the company’s EMS program. Now, with Vivint Solar fully integrated, we will continue to build a solid foundation anchored by a more sustainable operating environment in 2022.
Sunrun works with vendors that share our commitment to creating a better, greener, and kinder planet. That’s why we included policies on environmental protection and sustainability as well as responsible mineral sourcing in our Vendor Code of Conduct, adopted in January 2019. We expect all of our vendors to adhere to the policies set forth in Sunrun’s Vendor Code of Conduct.
