The protection and control of Studer’s impact on the environment is an integral part of our values. The ISO14001 certification is the visible part of it from the outside. The company takes into account the various ordinances and relevant laws in terms of the environment. Each activity of the company is analyzed according to the different possible impacts. The points identified are regularly reviewed in order to assess the reasonably possible reduction of these impacts and an action plan is put in place.
The electrical consumption is a preponderant aspect to which particular attention is paid. Thus, since 2017, all the electrical energy consumed comes from renewable sources. Each waste is systematically sorted and inserted into the planned recycling sector. Everyone, according to their activity, is made aware of the possible environmental effects. The Valais-Excellence certification validates the choice of proximity when possible, thus further reducing the ecological footprint.
Our quality policy applies to all our activities and aims in particular to:
Towards a portfolio of 1000 labelled solutions
To address environmental challenges while enabling economic growth, Bertrand Piccard has launched, through the Solar Impulse Foundation, the challenge of selecting 1000 profitable solutions to protect the environment in order to convince decision-makers in governments and businesses to achieve their environmental targets and adopt more ambitious energy policies, which are necessary to pull these solutions to market.
The aim: to accelerate the transition to a carbon-free and sustainable economy.
A label focused on both the environment and profitability
The first label to assess the economic profitability of products or processes that protect the environment. The Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label is attributed following a strict selection process performed by external independent experts. By ensuring high standards of sustainability and profitability, this internationally recognized label is considered as a recognition for innovators and as a credible marker of quality for solution seekers in business and governments, facilitating their sourcing of solutions to reach environmental commitments.
Boosting the adoption of profitable solutions to protect the environment
The Solar Impulse Foundation aims to identify clean, efficient and profitable solutions in order to accelerate their implementation and the transition to a sustainable economy. Thanks to the awarding of a label with high standards of sustainability and profitability, the Foundation can support political and economic decision-makers in their efforts to achieve their environmental targets and encourage them to adopt more ambitious energy regulations, necessary for implementation at large-scale of these solutions on the market.
A way to take the success of the first round-the-world solar flight further.
Decades of local anchoring
We have been developing, manufacturing and testing our products in Sion (Valais region), in the heart of the Swiss Alps, ever since 1987. We therefore wanted to show that we belong to this magnificent region by joining the “Valais Excellence” label.
This certification was created to reward those Valais-based companies which stand out because of their social and environmental performance, while continuously improving their products and services.
Quality assurance for our partners
For Studer’s partners, the label is evidence that our company
In order to be eligible, we had to meet a number of criteria relating to governance, as well as societal, environmental and human aspects. Our internal processes were analysed, in particular those involving the development of our products, our facilities and our relations with local partners.
We were really keen to have a positive influence on the Valais ecosystem, which has allowed us to develop over time.
Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE), as an international business association based in Brussels, encourages access to affordable and clean energy to rural people with low and medium incomes. They promote decentralised energy access for the 21st century.
ARE enables improved energy access through business development support for more than 170 Members along the whole value chain for off-grid technologies.
Furthermore, they provide technical / financial recommendations and want to match B2B companies with financing solutions by facilitating access to funds.
They offer as services for their members Market intelligence, policy & Advocacy Support, Communication / Marketing and an international job platform.
Collaboration about the future of Energy
We think that our goals are common because we both want to reduce carbon emission and increase access to clean energy for off-grid applications. We are participating actively in international events in order to pave the way to a brighter future.
Association for solar professionals in Africa
Africa Solar Industry Association (AFSIA) act as the reference association for solar professionals in Africa. Based in Kigali, Rwanda, they promote grid-connected projects, off-grid solar & hybrid systems that include include storage to solar water pumping, solar stoves or solar water heaters.
They want to strengthen the solar industry across the continent and provide networking opportunities.
Being a member of AFSIA?
AFSIA gives access to:
Studer’s membership with AFSIA
We are proud to be AFSIA’s member and contribute to the development of the african solar industry. Both of us think that solar energy is the best ally for the future!
We are looking forward to starting our activities together!
