  • JinkoSolar, the world’s leading solar and storage company, today announced it has passed the “Zero Carbon Factory Evaluation Code” and has been awarded the “Zero Carbon Factory” certification for its advanced green business practices.

This represents a high degree of recognition of the company’s social responsibility and environmental awareness by the national authoritative certification institute, marking JinkoSolar‘s progress towards a new level of sustainable development, energy saving, emission reduction and environmental protection, as well as providing a role model for the creation of green factories in the new era.

The “Zero Carbon Factory Evaluation Code” is the world’s first comprehensive and quantifiable zero carbon factory construction standard and evaluation rules, jointly compiled by more than 20 authoritative organisations, including TÜV Rheinland, and leading companies, and formally filed with the Certification and Accreditation Administration of the People’s Republic of China (CNCA). The assessment indicators cover six indicators, including infrastructure, intelligent information management system for energy and carbon emissions, energy and resource use, products, greenhouse gas reduction implementation and carbon offset implementation.

JinkoSolar passed the zero-carbon factory certification, marking that in the manufacturing process, through technical energy saving, emission reduction and carbon elimination measures, the factory already has a comprehensive zero-carbon emission performance, and has formed a perfect zero-carbon factory management system from the aspects of material selection, equipment selection, process selection, energy management, carbon digitalisation platform, and carbon emission reduction technology, and realised the carbon emission data collection-management-optimisation triple linkage.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
