The GOGLA Consumer Protection Code is under development to safeguard and respect consumer rights in the off-grid solar industry. It is based on six principles of business practice and is set to be formalised with an in-depth measurement and reporting framework by 2020.

SunFunder has endorsed the GOGLA Consumer Protection Code's six principles of business practice. This demonstrates our willingness as an organisation to align our internal practices with the Principles and support off-grid solar providers to fulfill the minimum standards of practice in their treatment of customers. Throughout 2019 we will be working with GOGLA to establish a framework for investors and other stakeholders to support and promote good practice. Further information can be found on the GOGLA website.
