Talk with anyone on the Sol Systems team, and you’ll get a glimpse into how our genuine culture and values shape how we work and give.
From day one, co-founders Yuri Horwitz and George Ashton built Sol Systems on the belief that success is defined by how we add value to society. Yuri and George have worked avidly to align business and philanthropic strategies as one, viewing giving back as a business investment.
The core of both our work and giving reflect the three pillars of sustainability:
- Environmental Protection: The world’s health is our health.
- Social Equity: Society’s well-being is our well-being.
- Economic Prosperity: Thriving businesses support thriving communities.
In our work, we leverage our solar project finance expertise to place investment capital in secure, sustainable sources of clean energy. The work is complex, but our strategy is simple: We excel by handpicking team members based on both expertise and their commitment to sustainability; and we succeed by nurturing long-term relationships that help our clients grow their businesses.
In our giving, we address social and environmental issues where we have the expertise and resources to make a positive impact. Time and time again, you’ll hear Yuri and George say that we’re not about just sitting in the office and writing a check removed from effort and impact… that it has to be something we care about sincerely and volunteer our time for to achieve meaningful and enduring change. That’s why we make the time to provide our expertise or just plain working hands for organizations we support monetarily.
Building on this foundation as we ready for Thanksgiving and the holidays, Sol Systems is expanding its giving program to include new initiatives in its corporate giving and solar industry support, plus a new employee match plan, and community service days.
We invite you to take a look, and wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!
