Our mission statement: “Putting people and the planet at the center of tomorrow’s energy”

1. Environmental Impact:

Producing energy from distributed generation resources with the goal of accelerating the clean energy transition of municipalities, companies, and the agricultural world, while minimizing the impact of CVE on the environment.

2. Human Impact:

Putting people at the heart of CVE’s corporate mission in order to promote individual and collective development, encourage excellence and foster the commitment of the men and women who support that mission.

3. Social Impact:

Imagining and building the energy models of tomorrow, in close collaboration with local stakeholders, by promoting shared governance and the creation of social and local value.

We’re proud to announce CVE North America’s B-Corp certification through our parent company, CVE Group, reinforcing our commitment to balance profit and purpose.

To manifest this vision, we abide by seven core commitments that guide our every action.

Commit to a new vision of energy: Renewable, produced and consumed locally

Choose quality as a driver of performance

Offer business models that are competitive for everyone

Better solar energy through quality and environmental management

Ever since the creation of CVE, we have made quality central to our business. It structures our organization, all of our processes, and our operational efficiency. It is what leads us to prioritize customer satisfaction with a focus on continual improvement. This commitment to quality has quickly earned CVE recognition for reliability and responsibility from its clients and partners, whether they are SMEs or Fortune 100 companies. CVE North America has become ISO 9001 certified in 2018 and renews its certification annually to remain compliant with the most recent version of the standard. In early 2020, CVE completed its environmental management training to become ISO 14001: 2015 certified. This certification sets out a framework that any organization must follow to design an effective environmental management system, providing assurance to company management and employees that environmental impact is being measured and improved.
