Trina Solar Limited reports that the Company has been granted a Silver Recognition Level in the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) performance survey conducted by EcoVadis. Recording a solid year-on-year improvement in its overall score, Trina Solar is now ranked in the top 13% of all businesses assessed by EcoVadis globally.

As an independent rating agency, EcoVadis operates the first collaborative platform providing supplier sustainability ratings for global supply chains. Using its unique CSR assessment methodology that covers 150 purchasing categories, 110 countries, and 21 CSR indicators, EcoVadis evaluates and analyses companies' performance over four major categories, i.e. Environment, Labour Practices and Human Rights, Fair Business Practices, and Sustainable Procurement.

Commenting on the results, Mr. Jifan Gao, Chairman and CEO of Trina Solar, said: "We are proud to have been recognised for our commitment to sustainability. We have taken significant steps over the past year to improve our CSR performance, and this has been reflected in the improvement of our CSR results. Our position within the top 13% of all companies worldwide assessed by EcoVadis demonstrates our prominent global position when it comes to embracing CSR requirements."

In addition to this latest CSR assessment, Trina Solar continues to hold a top position in the Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition's (SVTC) Solar Scorecard, along with the Company recently being named as the world's most bankable PV manufacturer by Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF).

Mr. Gao concluded: "As a leader in the development and production of renewable energy sources, we believe that our passion for quality and sustainability should be reflected in the way we approach relationships with our employees, the environment and the communities we serve.

"These are our strongest ever EcoVadis CSR results, and complement our achievements in the SVTC Solar Scorecard and the BNEF report. We will be taking necessary steps to ensure this upward trend continues in the future."

David McClintock, Marketing Director at EcoVadis, added: "We are pleased to see Trina Solar has made a notable score increase since their previous assessment just one year ago, and have done this through improvements in two themes: Environment and Labour practices. This is a good sign of commitment to ongoing improvement of their CSR practices which we hope to see continue across all themes in the coming years."
