A letter from our 
President and CEO

Sustainability is at the core of what we do at Enphase, and our purpose is to advance a sustainable future for all. We deliver technology solutions that make clean energy more affordable, reliable, and accessible. Today, Enphase is the world’s leading supplier of microinverter-based solar-plus-storage systems. Since inception, we have shipped approximately 30 million solar microinverters, and approximately 1.3 million Enphase-based systems have been deployed in more than 130 countries. Nearly 8.6 gigawatts of solar systems have been installed using Enphase microinverters, offsetting 20.8 million metric tons of CO2e — the equivalent of providing electricity to 3.5 million homes per year. Enphase was founded in 2006 with five key elements to our value proposition: deliver products that are productive, reliable, smart, simple, and safe.

Our approach to ESG

Sustainability is at the core of what we do, and our purpose is to advance a sustainable future for all. Our focus on ESG starts with our technology solutions that make clean energy more affordable, reliable, and accessible. As our business continues to grow, we are committed to increasing the well-being of our stakeholders and the communities we serve.

Environment

We collectively require a fundamental shift toward a more circular and low-carbon model. Companies with adequate sustainability management systems will thrive in a resource-constrained future and will be well placed to help customers do the same. We are in the business of enabling access to intelligent, clean energy solutions for our customers in order to help reduce the world's carbon footprint. Sustainability is at the core of what we do.

Human capital

People and communities build the fabric of our company. 
As a growing enterprise, we are dedicated to ensuring the health, safety, well-being, and professional growth of our employees in order to best serve our external stakeholders.

Social

At Enphase, we recognize and take seriously our responsibility to help protect, preserve, and promote human rights around the world. For us, this means creating accessible, clean technology for underserved communities, ensuring privacy and security for our partners and users, and perpetuating ethical practices along our value chain.

Governance

We combine strong internal governance with clear communication to ensure that stakeholder goals and objectives translate into actionable business practices by all Enphase employees. To support our commitment to drive the adoption of sustainable clean energy solutions for our customers, we participate in the development of policies and regulations around the world as part of our core governance principles.
