Trina Solar modules earn Carbon Footprint of Products Verification from UL Solutions

Trina Solar N Type

UL Solutions granted Trina Solar‘s full range of n-type modules its Carbon Footprint of Products Verification. The award was presented at a ceremony in Changzhou, Jiangsu province, on March 4.

The granting of the certification follows the requirements of ISO 14067 and life cycle assessment methodology, and estimates the total carbon emissions of the cradle-to-gate product life cycle, including energy management, life cycle analysis, material application and supply chain management.

After verifying the carbon footprint of modules, the carbon footprint of Trina Solar’s Vertex N 720W series modules, Vertex N 625W modules and Vertex S+ modules can be as low as 400kg/kW.

The Vertex N 625W module is the first n-type medium-format module to achieve CFP certification after the standardization of the dimensions of rectangular silicon wafer modules to 2382mmx1134mm industry-wide last July, a move spearheaded by Trina Solar. The standard size is formed based on Trina Solar’s 210R modules.

Trina has been recognized by certifications from numerous authorities for its ESG practices, including the Decarbonization Leader Award, Bloomberg Green ESG-Enterprises award and has been put on the Forbes China ESG 50 list. Its plant in Suqian, Jiangsu province, is recognized as a national green factory by China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. Trina Solar has also obtained EPD certifications from UL Solutions and gained registered EPD Italy certification for the outstanding performance of its Vertex series in December.
