Statement Detlef Neuhaus, Managing Director SOLARWATT GmbH:
The protests taking place in more than 1,000 cities today are an overwhelming signal towards the protection of our climate. They have our full support. For this reason, SOLARWATT exempts the entire workforce worldwide today, if they wish to attend the demonstrations. Together with the demonstrators, we want to set an example against climate change.
Under #scientists4future, 12,000 scientists have aligned with the demonstrators and launched a petition. In this petition, they demand immediate and consistent action for climate protection. We recommend to our employees, customers and partners to also express their voice under the hashtag #professionals4future and to sign the scientists’ petition. The renewable energy industry, respectively the whole economy, should find clear words and stand behind the movement.
