Trina Solar Limited, a leader in photovoltaic (PV) modules, solutions and services, announced it has maintained its No. 1 global ranking for environmental and social performance in the 2013 Solar Scorecard, an award system established by the Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition ("SVTC").
SVTC's Solar Scorecard aims to improve PV manufacturers' environmental and social practices and promote improved environmental reporting in the industry. It enables commercial, government and residential purchasers of PV modules to make informed purchases and choose environmentally and socially responsible PV manufacturers.
In the 2013 Scorecard, Trina Solar ranked highly for its chemical reduction plan and low PV module toxicity, as well as its commitment to worker rights, health and safety. The Company was also recognized for its extended producer responsibilities and its efforts to collect and recycle end-of-life PV modules.
