BSI Provides Carbon Footprint Verification for Trina Solar’s PV Modules

Trina Solar Limited ("Trina Solar" or the "Company"), a global leader in photovoltaic ("PV") modules, solutions, and services, today announced it obtained Carbon Footprint Verification ("Verification") for the Company's solar PV modules from the British Standards Institution (BSI), a leading international standards and certification body.

The Carbon Footprint Verification, which is based on standards PAS 2050 and ISO 14067, is widely used as a means of quantifying the carbon footprint of a range of goods and services. The Verification involves assessing the carbon footprint at various stages of a product's life cycle, such as the acquisition of raw materials, process activities phase and packaging. The Verification enables organizations to conduct an internal assessment of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions throughout a product's life cycle and helps identify potential cost and energy saving opportunities.

We are pleased to once again receive the Carbon Footprint Verification for our solar PV modules, said Jifan Gao, CEO and Chairman of Trina Solar. "The Verification provides dependable evidence of the environmental benefits of Trina Solar's products and serves as a differentiator for our products. The verification demonstrates Trina Solar's active commitment to sustainable development and a low carbon economy and recognizes our efforts to reduce the impacts of solar products on the environment. Our focus remains on further refining our product manufacturing processes and driving reductions in carbon emissions wherever possible."
