Trina Solar halbiert Treibhausgasemission bei der Modulherstellung innerhalb von zwei Jahren

Trina Solar halved greenhouse gas emissions from module production within two years

Chinese module manufacturer Trina Solar recently released its 2022 sustainability report , announcing impressive progress in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. With a decrease of 51 percent per megawatt in cell output and 62 percent in modules compared to the 2020 baseline values, Trina Solar has proven that sustainability is at the forefront of the company.

Greenhouse gas emissions challenges in manufacturing

The manufacture of photovoltaic modules is associated with certain environmental impacts, particularly in terms of greenhouse gas emissions. The use of renewable energy sources and the reduction of emissions are therefore of great importance to minimize the environmental impact. Trina Solar recognizes that these challenges need to be addressed and has set ambitious goals to achieve 100% renewable energy use in production and operations by 2030. This goal is in line with the United Nations SDG 7, which aims to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.

Trina Solar as a pioneer?

Trina Solar's total CO2 emissions in production, operation, research and development are already significantly lower than the offsetting of CO2 emissions that the company achieves through solar energy generated by its own PV systems and through the purchase of green electricity or energy savings . This demonstrates the company's commitment to sustainable practices throughout the production process. Trina Solar goes beyond just reducing emissions and actively invests in renewable energy to leave a positive environmental footprint.
