Canadian Solar’s CS6 series modules have been certified with two industry standards: the ISO 14001 and the EU’S REACH (registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals) program. The achievement of the ISO standard is achieved when companies like Canadian Solar have an established corporate environmental policy, goals associated with the policy and an environmental program.
“We are proud to be compliant with ISO 14001. Environmental, technological, cost and performance are key concerns and anchors of our growth strategy,” said Dr. Shawn Qu, chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar. “Customers rely on Canadian Solar for our innovation leadership, product efficiency and environmentally-friendly policies. Central to our efforts and success is ensuring safe working conditions. Like we do in our product strategy, we also believe in permanently optimizing what has already been achieved in environmental standards.”
Canadian Solar’s certification by the European Union’s REACH directive means that the company’s CS6 series modules comply with REACH’s adherence that substances used in the production of modules are free from substances of high concern. Canadian Solar’s modules were analyzed by the SGS group who confirmed that substances of high concern, such as carcinogenic or mutagenic substances, were not used in the CS6 series module’s production.
