SEIA releases tool aimed at increasing solar supply chain transparency




The document is written to have “universal application” across product lines intended for export to the U.S. market, and is expected to be adopted by equipment manufacturers and U.S. importers.

The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) released a tool that it said will increase supply chain transparency and help ensure that solar components are “made ethically throughout the solar value chain.”

The Solar Supply Chain Traceability Protocol is a set of guidelines intended to help solar companies meet compliance obligations and “provide customers with assurances that their solar products are free of unethical labor practices.” (Read the protocol here.)

“Solar customers expect their products to be ethically produced, and this protocol helps ensure that solar products coming into the United States are not made using forced labor,” said John Smirnow, SEIA’s vice president of market strategy.

John Smirnow

In early February, some 175 solar companies, including some of the top solar manufacturers in the world, signed an SEIA-led pledge opposing forced labor in the solar supply chain. In an interview with pv magazine, SEIA President and CEO Abigail Ross Hopper said that the industry trade group became aware of the forced labor issue late in 2020 and had been communicating with our companies that “they need to move their supply chains.” She set a goal of late June for companies to have adjusted their supply chains to avoid conflict regions.

The SEIA supply chain traceability document said it is intended to have “universal application” across product lines intended for export to the U.S. market. It expected key adopters to include equipment manufacturers and U.S. importers. It said that while its aim is to focus on “the provenance of material inputs,” it also recognizes the importance of independent, third-party audits and a “strong corporate social responsibility and import compliance platform.”

SEIA said that the U.S. government has “identified forced labor as an area of concern for the solar supply chain.” It said that U.S. solar customers also are “increasingly seeking assurances that the products they purchase are truly sustainable and, in particular, free of forced labor.”

SEIA said that that the new tool “by itself will not stamp out forced labor, companies need to go through the steps laid out by the protocol.”

In a statement released by SEIA, George Hershman, president of Swinerton Renewable Energy and SEIA board chair said, “This important tool provides a consistent set of guidelines rooted in equity, security and sustainability to thousands of solar companies across the country.”

Best practices

The protocol is a set of recommended best practices that SEIA said is designed to prevent forced labor in the solar supply chain; help companies meet their U.S. import compliance obligations; and provide customers value chain transparency. SEIA said the tool has been structured as an industry specification or de facto standard, with the expectation that it will be further developed into a formal industry standard.

The protocol includes an audit mechanism intended to measure a company’s implementation and compliance. SEIA said that in assessing conformance, “no single factor will be dispositive.” It said that auditors would assess conformance based on a “holistic approach.”

SEIA also updated its Solar Commitment, which defines common labor, health and safety, environmental, and ethical standards and expectations for solar companies. The update includes guidance on workplace safety and ethical labor practices.

In addition, the standard includes recycling and refurbishment best practices, information on energy consumption tracking, procedures to avoid the use of conflict minerals in solar products, and additional guidance that companies can follow to hold suppliers to the standards.

SEIA also released a Solar Buyers’ Guide on Traceability, which summarizes the protocol and offers a set of questions that customers, developers, financiers, and other stakeholders should ask suppliers about products in the solar + storage value chain.

Asia/Pacific Market Trends to Boost Global Off-Road Equipment in 2021




CLEVELAND, May 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — A new Freedonia Group analysis projects a strong post-pandemic rebound for the global market for off-road equipment (i.e., construction, agricultural, mining, and forestry machinery) in 2021, with demand expected to rise 5.4% to $439 billion:

  • In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic precipitated a sharp sales decline as demand for off-road equipment plummeted in key end-use industries – particularly construction and mining.
  • As the pandemic recedes and revenues strengthen in these industries, however, all major off-road equipment markets are poised to rebound in 2021.

Healthy Growth Expected in All Regions Post Pandemic

In 2021 and beyond, the Asia/Pacific region will continue to drive global sales growth, supported by rebounding construction and rising investment as the pandemic recedes:

  • China, Australia, South Korea, and several other countries saw lesser disruption or earlier recoveries than other parts of the world, which will boost advances in 2021.
  • Central and South America will register the fastest advances post pandemic, albeit from a smaller base, spurred by rising mechanization rates as more foreign-run firms enter and invest in key local industries.

While North America and Western Europe will contribute to global expansion through 2025, short term growth in these mature markets will continue to be constrained by weak mining output and a protracted recovery in nonresidential construction.

Innovation Key Driver of Long-Term Growth

The Freedonia Group forecasts global demand for off-road equipment to increase 3.8% annually through 2025. Long-term advances will be boosted by rising investment in state-of-the-art technologies designed to help customers improve efficiency and productivity, particularly:

  • autonomous equipment and robotics
  • fuel efficient and low- or zero-emission equipment
  • advanced ergonomics and improved operator comfort
  • predictive maintenance, global positioning, drones, and other solutions made capable by advances in the industrial internet of things (IIoT)

Want to Learn More?

Global Off-Road Equipment 2021 is now available from the Freedonia Group. This study analyzes global demand for off-road equipment.

Demand values are provided for 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2025 at the manufacturers’ level in current US dollars (i.e., not adjusted to account for inflation). Demand is segmented by equipment type and world region. Data include the value of replacement parts and attachments sold separately. Values do not take into account retail markups. Also excluded are the values of software and services.

Off-road equipment demand is segmented by the following machinery types:

  • construction
  • agricultural
  • mining
  • forestry

The study also provides estimates of demand for smart machinery by equipment type. Smart machinery is defined as equipment that can operate autonomously or semi-autonomously and greatly enhance the abilities of the operator by connecting, sharing, and interacting with other devices to make decisions without human intervention.

While demand for drones is presented in the study, it is not included in the equipment demand totals. Also, drones used by government agencies or environmental groups to monitor forested land are excluded from the study.

Caterpillar Announces New 2030 Sustainability Goals and Reports Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Progress




DEERFIELD, Ill., May 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT) illustrates how it continues to help its customers build a better, more sustainable world in its 2020 Sustainability Report published today. In addition to highlighting the company’s progress through 2020, the report introduces Caterpillar’s new sustainability goals to achieve by 2030.

“Caterpillar is well-positioned to continue improving the quality of the environment and communities by helping our customers fulfill society’s basic needs such as shelter, clean water, education and reliable energy, in a sustainable way,” said Caterpillar Chairman and CEO Jim Umpleby. “We are demonstrating our commitment to a reduced-carbon future in many ways, including through our significant progress in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from our operations and our continued investment in new products, technologies and services that help customers achieve their climate-related objectives as they build a better, more sustainable world.”

Caterpillar’s seven new 2030 sustainability goals will enhance the company’s performance and impact and are focused on ESG topics within its own operations, as well as product stewardship in support of its customers’ sustainability goals. Five are centered on climate and the environment, and two focus on employee and customer safety. 

  • Employee Health & Safety: We aspire to prevent all injuries and further our industry-leading safety results by reducing recordable injury frequency (RIF) by 50% from 2018 to 2030. 
  • Operations Energy & Emissions: We have set a science-based Scope 1 and 2 goal to reduce absolute greenhouse gas emissions from our operations by 30% from 2018 to 2030. 
  • Operations Water: Implement water management strategies at 100% of facilities located in water high-risk areas by 2030. 
  • Operations Waste: Reduce landfill intensity by 50% from 2018 to 2030. 
  • Product Emissions & Energy Efficiency: 100% of Caterpillar’s new products through 2030 will be more sustainable than the previous generation through collaborating with customers, reduced waste, improved design for rebuild/remanufacturing, lower emissions or improved efficiency. 
  • Remanufacturing: Increase sales and revenues from remanufacturing offerings by 25% from 2018 to 2030. 
  • Customer Safety: Provide leadership in the safety of people who work in, on and around our products. 

The 2020 Sustainability Report, prepared in alignment with Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) criteria, underscores how Caterpillar provides value to customers by developing innovative products and services to help them meet their ESG objectives. As we move beyond our 2020 goals, the report highlights progress, including:

  • 93% reduction in recordable injury frequency (RIF) since 2003, including delivering the best recordable injury frequency safety performance on record two years in a row (2019 and 2020) while providing essential products and services;
  • 51% reduction in absolute greenhouse gas emissions from 2006 baseline;
  • 43% reduction in absolute water consumption from 2006 baseline; and
  • 33% of annual aggregate electrical energy needs sourced with alternative and renewable sources.
