Trina Solar

Trina Solar has secured Carbon Footprint Verification for its solar PV modules from the British Standards Institution (BSI).

The Carbon Footprint Verification is grounded on standards PAS 2050 and ISO 14067, is widely used as a method for measuring the carbon footprint of various goods and services.

The Verification consists of evaluating the carbon footprint at different stages of a product’s life cycle, like raw materials acquisition, process activities phase and packaging.

The Verification helps organizations to conduct an internal assessment of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions throughout a product’s life cycle, helping to identify potential cost and energy saving opportunities.

The company has once again received the Carbon Footprint Verification for the company’s solar PV modules. The Verification provides dependable evidence of the environmental benefits of Trina Solar’s products and serves as a differentiator for products, said, Jifan Gao, CEO, Chairman, Trina Solar.

The verification recognizes the efforts to reduce the impacts of solar products on the environment. Its focus remains on further refining the product manufacturing processes and driving reductions in carbon emissions wherever possible, he added.
