In conjunction with the event, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. (hereafter referred to as World Wide Fund for Nature Climate Solver Award 2021) earned the honor for its Fusion Solar Smart PV solution.
During this year’s summit, the Carbon Neutrality Action Leadership Award was officially launched, an award based on Science-Based Targets (SBTi) and Race to Zero. The aim is to recognize individuals, teams, and projects that excel in areas such as business commitment, innovative technology, measurable results, and impactful communication, to encourage companies to engage in activities that reduce carbon emissions, drive various industries to set up emission reduction targets, and set an example by taking such actions.
It is based on the WWF Climate Solver program, launched in China in 2011 and based on the Carbon Neutrality Actor – Climate Solver of the Year award. Through its research and selection of innovative low-carbon technologies, this program will pursue a goal of preventing global average temperatures from rising by more than 2 degrees Celsius by
Promoting climate technologies with revolutionary potential by fostering favorable conditions.
A total of 34 innovative low-carbon technologies have been recognized since the award was launched in 2011. Climate Solver Awards applications were accepted from December 2020 through March of this year. From a range of candidates, the Huawei FusionSolar Smart PV solution has been deemed the best by a stringent compliance review, a primary election, and two rounds of expert evaluation.
There were particularly strict criteria in this year’s selection process. In the on-site reply process, the participants considered not only the level of technical advance (20%), economics (20%), and maturity (15%) of the candidates, but also their environmental and ecological benefits, growth prospects, and social benefits, which were calculated to determine the final score.
