LONGi certified as “Future-Fit”

Global News

Xi´an (China) 17th April - Leading global solar technology company LONGi has been certified as a Future-Fit Engaged Business by the Future-Fit Foundation, a UK non-profit dedicated to promoting and stewarding the “Future-Fit Business Benchmark” for advancing sustainable business practices.

In its quest to become the most sustainable solar PV manufacturer globally, LONGi selected the Future-Fit Business Benchmark to measure and assess its progress with the Benchmark’s 23 Break-Even Goals. The choice reflects LONGi’s commitment to bolstering its technical innovation, aligning sustainability objectives across its business value chain, and acknowledging the fundamental significance of the SDGs to the company's mission.

Aiming to ensure that all energy the company consumes – including electricity, heat, and fuel – originates from renewable sources, LONGi has prioritized Goal BE01. Electricity constitutes the company's primary energy source, accounting for over 98% of its energy mix. The manufacturer is continuously increasing its efforts to raise the proportion of renewable electricity within its energy consumption.

Already by 2022, nearly half (47.18%) of LONGi's renewable electricity was either procured through power trading markets or generated onsite through distributed facilities. The company is dedicated to achieving 100% renewable electricity usage by 2028 and is actively participating in the RE100 initiative. As a Future-Fit Engaged Business entity, LONGi will meticulously monitor and report its progress on an annual basis.

In alignment with the vision of a Future-Fit society, LONGi acknowledges the critical importance of ensuring sustained flourishing for humanity and the planet. This encompasses fostering social justice, economic inclusivity, and environmental restoration. It envisions a world where energy is renewable, water is responsibly sourced, waste is minimized, and natural resources are managed to ensure the well-being of communities, animals, and ecosystems. Pollution is reduced, enabling a pristine environment for all. In such a society, people are empowered to lead fulfilling lives, and our physical presence prioritizes the health of ecosystems and communities. Moreover, societal norms, global governance, and economic growth converge to propel the pursuit of future-fitness. Embarking on its Future-Fit journey, LONGi strengthens its commitment to contribute to this vision of a sustainable and thriving world for generations to come.

Martin Rich, Co-founder and CEO of Future-Fit Foundation, said “We are delighted to welcome LONGi into the global Future-Fit community. As a solar PV manufacturer LONGi is playing a critical role in the transition to a global renewable energy system. However, our vision of a Future-Fit Society can only be achieved if those driving the transition are themselves committed to changing and so we celebrate LONGi’s commitments and look forward to journeying with them.”
