Canadian Solar Inc. has announced its latest accolade: the esteemed title of "Global Sustainability Reporting of the Year" as part of the 2023 Sustainable Company Awards presented by Environmental Finance.
This prestigious recognition underscores Canadian Solar's unwavering commitment to transparent, comparable, and comprehensive sustainability reporting, a hallmark of its strategy, commitments, and progress toward attaining sustainability goals.
For a remarkable three consecutive years, Canadian Solar has been diligently releasing sustainability and ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) reports adhering to the rigorous global standards established by influential bodies like the Task Force on Climate-Related Disclosure (TCFD), the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), and the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).

It proudly joins the United Nations Global Compact, pledging to uphold and support the Ten Principles of the UNGC concerning human rights, labour practices, environmental stewardship, and anti-corruption measures.
Furthermore, Canadian Solar has submitted a commitment letter to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), signalling its intent to establish science-based climate targets, both in the near term and on the path to net-zero emissions.
