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.
