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 & 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 recognized 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 Labor 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."

India has surpassed its solar energy target for 2015-16 more than one and a half times, commissioning 3018 MW during the year against the 2000 MW it had set itself. Tamil Nadu added the most capacity in 2015-16 at 887.19 MW, followed by Andhra Pradesh (433.24 MW) and Telangana (351.56 MW). 

At the end of 2015-16, the country's cumulative solar capacity stands at 6753.38 MW, up from 3743.97 MW. At the end of 2015-16, the country's cumulative solar capacity stands at 6753.38 MW, up from 3743.97 MW a year ago. Rajasthan, which has the best solar radiation among states, remains No. 1 in overall installed capacity at 1264.35 MW.

While Gujarat, the earliest to start a solar programme, is in second place with 1105.15 MW. But Tamil Nadu, with its massive capacity addition this year, is rapidly catching up and is in third place with 1030.77 MW. Madhya Pradesh with 775.87 MW installed capacity and Andhra Pradesh with 571.09 MW are in fourth and fifth positions. The cumulative target for at the end of 2016-17 is much stiffer at 17,000 MW which means over 10,000MW will have be added in 2016-17.
