Hanwha Q CELLS Powers WEFs Sustainability Certification
[February 22, 2018] The World Economic Forum (WEF) received ISO 20121:2012 certification from the International Organization for Standardization on the last day of its 2018 Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland. The certification confirms that the WEF's planning and operation of its flagship event are done in an environmentally sustainable manner.
ISO 20121 is a large event-specific variation of the many ISO sustainability certifications issued to organizations around the world. The ISO 20121:2012 designation comes from the 2012 London Olympics, which was influential in the development of the ISO 20121 standard.
In order to qualify for certification, the WEF instituted a large number of sustainability measures, including: carbon offsets for all event-related air travel, the promotion of sustainable transportation (such as walking, public transportation, and hybrid vehicles), efforts to improve energy efficiency, and waste reduction.
Hanwha Group would like to congratulate the WEF for earning ISO 20121:2012 certification and is proud to have contributed to the Forum’s efforts to reduce carbon emissions.
Hanwha Q CELLS donated Q.PEAK 275 Wp solar modules to help provide the WEF with renewable energy. The 340 kW-capacity solar system is installed on the roof of the Davos Congress Center, the WEF Annual Meeting's venue, and can provide enough clean electricity to offset carbon emissions by up to 20 tons a year.
