JinkoSolar Invited to Deliver a Speech at the Introductory Session of the Coalition for Green Development on the Belt and Road
BEIJING, May 15, 2017 -- JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. ("JinkoSolar" or the "Company") (NYSE: JKS), a global leader in the PV industry, today announced that it was invited by UNEP to attend and deliver a speech at the introductory session of the Coalition for Green Development on the Belt and Road.
Chinese President Xi Jinping delivered a keynote speech at the opening ceremony of the Belt and Road Forum (BRF) for International Cooperation in Beijing, capital of China, May 14, 2017. In his speech, Xi proposed an international coalition for green development on the Belt and Road to support related countries in adapting to climate change.
Responding to President's suggestion, China's Ministry of Environmental Protection and the United Nations Environment Program, JinkoSolar, financial institutions, key organizations both home and abroad were jointly establishing an international coalition to work towards the sustainable development of the Belt and Road Initiative.
The Coalition for Green Development on the Belt and Road will help build an international platform to share environment policies and experiences among the countries involved in the Belt and Road and also promote wide cooperation.
"There was a time not long ago when renewable energy was not considered economically feasible. With technological improvement and scale, Chinese leading solar PV manufacturers such as JinkoSolar have successfully brought down the cost of solar power which now beats coal fired power on cost. The promotion and deployment of solar energy in more and more belt road countries will not only help them to realize energy transition but also develop a sustainable low carbon economy and create millions of new jobs." Commented Ms. Dany Qian, the Vice President of JinkoSolar.
And in recent years, JinkoSolar has been leading the way to provide clean and affordable solar power products, increasing production investment and projects’ development in belt road countries. Evidence of these can be seen in Malaysia, where JinkoSolar has built and operated the largest overseas solar PV factory of this kind in terms of capacity and technology adopted. In addition to two factories in Malaysia and South Africa, JinkoSolar has developed a number of solar plants along the belt road. Among which, the milestone project is 1.17GW, the world’s largest single solar project with record breaking cost. Such massive investment in development on this scale has been never seen before. We will seize this opportunity from the Belt and Road initiative and forge intensive partnership with all players in energy power sector in these regions."
"Climate change and rising demand for energy are not a single country's problem. These are global challenges. So they must be tackled collectively by working together. Now it is the time to do it right and make Belt and Road as green as possible." Added Ms. Dany Qian.
