Huawei, as a leading global company in ICT solutions provider that integrated it into its solar products, was awarded the world's first Carbon Footprint Verification (CFV) for solar inverter products issued by the British Standards Institution (BSI).
A recognized standards organization with a global reputation, BSI produces standards like the first carbon footprint standard in the world, PAS 2050, and serves as a special advisor to the UNFCCC. This CFV demonstrates Huawei's capacity to assess a product's carbon footprint across the course of its lifecycle and recognizes Huawei's efforts to lower carbon emissions, increase the use of renewable energy, and advance the circular economy. The full lifecycle of inverters is supported by Huawei's green, low-carbon, and sustainable development strategy, which is recognized by BSI. In the photovoltaic (PV) business, it is crucial to establish and grow a carbon footprint control system.
The PV industry is rapidly expanding as a significant source of renewable energy, propelled by China's targets of reaching a carbon peak by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060. Although it is widely acknowledged that PV power generation is a key means of lowering carbon emissions, not all PV products are low-carbon in nature. The Clean Production of Solar PV in China report states that during 1.3 years of their 25-year lifecycles, PV plants are unable to produce zero carbon emissions. Therefore, lowering carbon emissions is essential for decarbonizing energy systems. In order to do this, it is critical to comprehend and manage the carbon footprint and impact of carbon emissions during the production of PV system components.
