JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (NYSE: JKS) (“JinkoSolar”), an innovative global solar module manufacturer, today announced that it is the top manufacturer in Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition’s (“SVTC”) latest Solar Scorecard. JinkoSolar earned a score of 100/100, more than the other 36 module manufacturers in the Scorecard.
The Scorecard is a resource for consumers, investors, developers, EPCs, distributors, and installers who want to purchase PV modules from responsible product stewards. Criteria in the Scorecard includes environmental, health, and safety metrics. This achievement comes a year after JinkoSolar became the first PV module manufacturer to join the RE100, pledging to power 100 per cent of its operations with renewables by 2025.
Mr. Kangping Chen, Chief Executive Officer of JinkoSolar, commented, “We support SVTC’s goal to ensure that the solar industry does not overlook the importance of equitable environmental and holistic sustainable approaches to all business operations. We hope more of our peers follow our lead, so the solar industry as a whole can become a beacon of sustainable practices.”
“We applaud JinkoSolar for its transparency, leadership, and commitment to producing modules in a clean and responsible way,” said Sheila Davis, Executive Director of SVTC. “Customers have choices when they make purchases, and we hope that the Solar Scorecard can help them make informed decisions.”
