The UN Global Goals

Midsummer works to fulfill the UN Global Goals, to the benefit of both current and future generations. The Global Goals aim to fight extreme poverty, reduce injustice and inequality in the world, promote peace and justice and solve the climate crisis. We proudly support these goals, and we are even now adhering to many of the sub-goals.

Midsummer has included several guidelines and objectives from the Global Goals. These are implemented through our policies that span all areas of our business. The work is characterized by transparency towards all actors, both internally within the company and with respect to third parties.

Currently it is primarily these new goals that Midsummer has integrated throughout the organization. The goals we have chosen to focus on are all linked to our business activities and what we can influence at Midsummer. The inspiration from the UN's Global Goals is used to contribute to positive change at both the local and global level. We want to take part in paving the way for other industries to follow in our footsteps, so that we can create a better world together. These nine goals are also reflected in our CSR policy.

Mål #17

Genomförande och globalt partnerskap

Globala partnerskap är nyckeln till att utveckla ytterligare strategier och policys för hållbar utveckling. Midsummer är med i två olika organisationer, Svensk Solenergi och European Solar Manufacturing Council, för att möjliggöra ett partnerskap med flera intressenter, både lokalt och EU-baserat. Detta med syfte att skapa nya strategier för forskning och industriell tillverkning.

Goal #5

Equality

Gender equality is a basic principle for Midsummer, where there is zero tolerance for gender discrimination within the organization, including anywhere in our value chain. Midsummer works actively to create equal pay opportunities regardless of gender, while at the same time creating an attractive work environment. Our ambition is to be a workplace where our employees find it easy to combine their professional life with parenthood.

Goal #7

Sustainable energy for everyone

The core of our business is renewable energy for everyone, whereby Midsummer manufactures and installs discrete solar cell roofs for the private and public market. As part of our business strategy we aim to achieve several of the goals within the framework of clean energy, and it is our ambition to be part of meeting the world’s future energy needs. The energy market of the future will need to be based increasingly on renewable sources of energy, such as solar energy.

Goal #8

Decent working conditions and economic growth

Midsummer strives for inclusive and sustainable economic growth that lays the foundation for productive employment for all, through innovation and technological upgrading. The green transition industry is growing rapidly, which translates into rapid growth for Midsummer. This in turn means an increasing need for human resources, which means more jobs. Midsummer always does its utmost to provide a safe workplace for its employees, and our internal routines and policies are designed to prevent incidents and accidents in our manufacturing and operational phases.

Goal #9

Sustainable industry, innovations and infrastructure

The technology used in our company's value creation is unique and manufactured by Midsummer here in Sweden. It is the core of the business and ensures that our products are resilient, discreet and high-quality, as well as creating an extended life cycle for our solar cells. Thanks to our unique solar cells, we contribute to sustainable industry and economic development. Midsummer engages in continuous collaboration and an open dialog with our current stakeholders, enabling us to gain more insight and knowledge to improve and adapt our current and future innovations.

Goal #10

Reduced inequality

We work continuously to reduce inequality and have zero tolerance towards discriminatory actions that are go against our policies. Our Code of Conduct and our internal Diversity and Inclusion Policy as well as our Work Environment Policy elp us reduce all types of inequality in the work place and between our employees. Please see the other sections in our CSR policy for further information about how we are working toward this goal.

Goal #11

Sustainable cities and societies

One of Midsummer's ambitions is to reduce environmental impact in cities and improve the overall air quality. Our goal is to create a sustainable and safe society that can provide a healthier lifestyle for everyone. With fast-growing cities, it is important that we use the available space that already exists on rooftops to provide green energy for our cities. Increased population growth and increased human activity means that the need for electricity will also increase. Therefore, it is important that we can meet this future need with green electricity.

Goal #12

Sustainable production and consumption

Strengthening and increasing the lifespan and service life of our products is crucial for conserving already scarce natural resources. Our world is facing challenges such as global semiconductor problems, where design changes or alternative solutions are necessary for further growth. We provide a 10-year product guarantee, as well as with an expected 90% peak effect after 10 years and 80% after 25 years of use. Despite the long product lifetime, our products do not require any kind of additional maintenance. We minimize the use of chemicals in the production of our products in accordance with Swedish standards and thereby reduce our impact on air, soil and water. We use minimal water in our manufacturing process.

Our solar roofs have a long lifespan, so the full life cycle of the product has not yet been reached. To make possible a circular flow of resources even in the final stages, preparatory work is currently underway to implement recycling strategies, focusing on making it possible to reuse important components for new products while at the same time reducing the environmental impact.

Goal #13

Fighting climate change

At Midsummer, we work to accelerate the transition to energy production based on renewable solar energy. Our products are sold to private and commercial stakeholders who are green energy producers, which also reduces their total carbon footprint. We sell discreet solar panels that are integrated with the roof design, making it possible to install panels on roofs where traditional solar cells are not an option.

A third-party life cycle analysis shows that our products have a 90% lower carbon footprint than other solar panels, due to our efficient manufacturing systems. The study has identified the environmental impact of our operations during the products' life cycles and presented alternative solutions for reducing or even eliminating our current impact on the climate.
