Upholding quality standards for good governance

Responsible governance is an ongoing process of continuous improvement based on a foundation of ethical values, transparency, and compliance. While often seen as the unsung backbone of an organization, First Solar proudly places its governance standards front and center.

Quality governance is part of the fabric of First Solar’s culture and daily operations, from the independence and diversity of its Board of Directors to how it communicates its Code of Conduct internally. 

Responsible Solar focuses not on meeting industry standards but on exceeding them and promoting environmental, social, and governance best practices.
