Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition is a nonprofit organization engaged in research, advocacy and grassroots organizing to promote human health and environmental justice in response to the rapid growth of the high-tech industry.
The Scorecard is a resource for consumers, investors, developers, EPCs, distributors, and installers who want to purchase PV modules from responsible product stewards. The Scorecard sriteria includes environmental, health, and safety metrics.

Speaking on the company’s achievement, Kangping Chen, Chief Executive Officer of JinkoSolar, said “we support SVTC’s goal to ensure that the solar industry does not overlook the importance of equitable environmental and holistic sustainable approaches to all business operations. We hope more of our peers follow our lead. So the solar industry as a whole can become a beacon of sustainable practices.”
“We applaud JinkoSolar for its transparency, leadership, and commitment to producing modules in a clean and responsible way,” said Sheila Davis, Executive Director of SVTC.
