Sustainability Report

We have always placed our company’s values at the forefront of everything we do when delivering ultra-pure polysilicon to support sustainable solutions to the world’s energy and technological demands. That’s why, this year, we decided to take a look at our own practices to get a better understanding of where we have excelled, where we continue to improve, and where we need to put increased focus to build a more just and sustainable society.

HSC Values

Our 2020 Sustainability Report focuses on key steps in HSC’s ongoing efforts to make its business operations more sustainable. This report looks at four key areas for HSC:

  1. environmental stewardship
  2. social responsibility
  3. governance & leadership
  4. innovation

Our polysilicon material used in solar panels is fundamentally sustainable, but, as our CEO Mark Bassett writes, “just making a key ingredient of solar panels isn’t enough.” We wanted to do more. Much of this report focuses on the efforts HSC has made to reduce “embodied carbon” across the solar supply chain. Through ongoing investments in energy efficiencies which are detailed in the report, we have reduced our GHG intensity by 5% in the last 5 years. And we’re working with our suppliers and customers as true partners, to remove supply chain carbon emissions.
