Solahart Industries supplier REC was named ‘Best Company for
Sustainability in Solar Energy Solutions Global’ at the IAIR Global Awards held
earlier this year in Hong Kong. REC is a supplier of Solahart's 255W solar panels.
Winners of the IAIR Global Awards are selected by a judging panel and
over 50,000 readers of the independent magazine and research institute; winning
the award is, therefore, testament to REC’s robust commitment to ecologically
sustainable products and responsible business conduct worldwide.
The IAIR Global Awards drew around 500 attendees who witnessed
top-ranking companies from all over the world win these prestigious awards in
recognition of their commitment to green initiatives and eco-products.
According to Øyvind Hasaas, CEO of REC Solar ASA, the global award
represents the new standards of sustainability established by REC with its high
quality and reliable solar energy solutions. Based on input from around the
world, the award is testament to REC’s consistent position as a global leader
on eco-issues and good corporate citizenship.
Recognised for its sustainability efforts in both its products and
special initiatives, REC is aware of the importance of being an environment-friendly
company, and makes conscious efforts to continually reduce energy use and
carbon emission in its operational processes. REC’s consistently high scores in
the global Carbon Disclosure Project – an organisation that works with
shareholders and companies to disclose greenhouse gas emissions of major
companies – reinforces its commitment to reduce its carbon footprint.
