PVTIME – JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (“JinkoSolar” or the “Company”) (NYSE: JKS), one of the largest and most innovative solar module manufacturers in the world, today announced that its Tiger (163″cell based) and Tiger Pro (182″ cell based) module series have met the carbon footprint verification standards of TÜV Rheinland Group (“TÜV Rheinland”), a leading global services provider in the testing of PV modules and components.

According to the latest stringent international carbon footprint standard, the assessment was conducted by evaluating the overall environmental impact of these two series of modules throughout the “cradle to grave” life cycles. This begins from raw material processing through to product production, transportation, waste management and final disposal, all-in-all evaluating energy management, life cycle analysis, raw material and supply chain management etc.

Dr. Hao Jin, Chief Technology Officer of JinkoSolar Co., Ltd., commented, “We are very proud to receive this certification from TÜV Rheinland. It is a strong endorsement of our efforts over the years to improve the energy efficiency of our products and execute our carbon emission reduction plans. For example, implementing the emission reduction concept across the entire lifecycle processes, quantifying GHG data and identifying”emission hotspots”, have been very successful initiatives that have enabled JinkoSolar to take preventative and proactive environmental management actions accordingly. Our green achievements demonstrate that we are heading in the right direction and we will continue to further support our customers and end users who are conscious about their environmental impact and promote practical ways of reducing their carbon footprint.”
