Our Vision for Sustainability

Our sustainability vision requires assessing our daily operations and digital solutions through the lens of sustainability to further optimize our energy storage solutions, supply chain, and product lifecycle. We believe that by utilizing digital solutions at various stages in our operations, supply chain, and product lifecycle, we will create increased accountability to our operations through greater transparency and accelerate our progress toward greater social and environmental stewardship.

Responsible Sourcing

Fluence’s responsible sourcing strategy sets ESG expectations for our supply chain and drives accountability among our suppliers.

Responsible sourcing is a business imperative, safeguarding both people and the environment against the potential hazards stemming from supply chain failures. We maintain a rigorous system of supplier selection, engagement, education, assessments, and auditing to achieve supply-base integrity and the high standards we expect at Fluence.

The Fluence responsible sourcing mission is to proactively leverage opportunities and inherently mitigate risks in our supply chain. Our focus extends to managing modern-day risks associated with globalization and climate change, among other significant market megatrends. Our goal is to surpass existing procurement targets without compromising future growth and the long-term sustainability of our business.
