Saving resources together
Our logo might be blue, but in Solar, we have always had a keen eye for the green solutions. We focus on energy-efficient solutions and provide best-in-class services to ensure sustainable use of resources. For the benefit of the environment. For our customers. And for Solar.
Here, you'll find more about our take on CSR and sustainability and the projects we dedicate ourselves to.
Our shipment boxes going in and out of our warehouses are made of 100% recycled materials.
In Solar Nederland, we have converted 30% of our company fleet to electric vehicles.
MAG45 has set up 1600 solar panels on their office building in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, which entails a CO2 reduction of 162 tons each year.
We have reduced the use air cushions (plastics) in packaging from 7.6 tons in 2019, to 1.8 ton in 2020.
Investing in Solar is investing in the green transition
Solar believes in productivity improvement, digitalisation and networked development. We support our customers in developing energy-efficient solutions, reducing waste and optimising logistics based on strong digital platforms.

This is how we take care of our own. This is where you see that 'stronger together' is more than just a payoff. It is a feeling. It is our culture.
In Solar, we have a grant programme named Solar Family, which was initiated by the founding family of Solar. Descendants of our founder Jacob L. Jørgensen make up the board of The Fund of 20th December, who is behind the initiative.
The programme provides financial aid to employees, who find themselves in a life crisis. This could be unforeseen accidents in life such as death, critical illness or accidents followed by serious consequences for the employee or someone in their immediate family. Our very own safety net.
We take care of Solar and Solar takes care of us.
Being a responsible business is at the very core of who we are. It defines the essence of our DNA and it infuses how we think and act. We collaborate with recognized international organisations to secure good business ethics in our value chain.
