Solitek – Solar Industry Frontrunner in Net-zero

Solitek – Solar Industry Frontrunner in Net-zero

When becoming carbon neutral or climate positive for companies is soon to turn into the new trend or new golden standard – Lithuanian company SoliTek, a producer of European PV modules, is far ahead by achieving net-positive CO2 emissions in 2022 (EU Third-Party Certificate).

SoliTek is net-zero, offsetting emissions not only of the manufacturing facility, but of the entire company, due to their own PV system on the roof. In 2022, SoliTek generated 0.04 kg/kW CO2 and offset a total of 26,650 kg/kW CO2.

With emissions around 400 times lower than the World’s top 5 PV module producers, SoliTek provides a solid contribution towards the EU goal of creating an economy with net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. For comparison: SoliTek emissions amount to 0.04 kg/kW, then for the other 5 major companies, it is 16.5 kg/kW of carbon dioxide. According to open data, SoliTek is leading the PV industry by example of manufacturing PV modules with 100% renewable energy in a sustainable way, producing the least emissions and offsetting the rest by itself.

This achievement is made possible by SoliTek exclusively relying on renewable energy sources for its operations: using geothermal power for heating and cooling combined with the 200 kW PV system on the roof and renewable electricity from the grid. SoliTek does not own any conventional cars, except for one diesel-based forklift, responsible for all the carbon emissions of the company, but still at the low rate of 0.04 kg/kW CO2. All other forklifts in the fleet are electric, minimizing emissions.

Solitek – Solar Industry Frontrunner in Net-zero

Despite the growth of sustainable technologies in recent years, carbon emissions continue to increase, and calls for governments, companies, organizations, and individuals to bolster commitments to reach net-zero emissions are becoming increasingly widespread. Transitioning to net-zero often involves improving energy efficiency and adopting renewable energy sources.

By optimizing energy use and reducing reliance on fossil fuels, individuals and organizations can save on energy costs in the long run. Energy-efficient practices can also lead to improved productivity and operational efficiency.

SoliTek is not only doing its fair share by manufacturing in a net-positive way, but also contributes to lowering Scope 3 emissions, occurring in the supply chain (e.g., choosing biofuel for transportation). That way, SoliTek minimizes the overall carbon footprint for its clients, which can improve their reputation and market competitiveness, and stay ahead of regulatory requirements.

By committing to net-zero, SoliTek demonstrates global leadership among its major competitors in the sector and hopefully will inspire others to take action – collective efforts are essential in achieving a sustainable future.
