In line with UN Sustainable Development Goals, the European Chamber of Sustainable Business Awards evaluates companies based on their engagement in sustainable development initiatives and their long-term business impact. The Decarbonisation Leader award aims to create a role model to inspire more companies to reduce carbon emissions, achieve green growth and promote sustainable development.

Trina Solar has long championed the principles of sustainable development. Drawing on its advantages in product development, technological innovation and manufacturing capabilities, the company has been a driving force for sustainable development.
