This document specifies the terms and definitions, basic principles, general requirements, supply chain carbon management system, product carbon footprint accounting, continuous reduction of product carbon footprint, offsetting greenhouse gas emissions, evaluation requirements, and carbon neutrality declaration for the evaluation of carbon neutralization of photovoltaic products (hereinafter referred to as "evaluation"). This document applies to the implementation of carbon neutralization evaluation for photovoltaic products throughout the lifecycle, from upstream raw material production to the disposal/recycling of photovoltaic modules. This includes industrial silicon materials, solar-grade polysilicon, wafers, solar cells, photovoltaic modules, thin-film solar cells, and inverters. It can also serve as a reference for implementing carbon neutralization activities in the photovoltaic industry. Other photovoltaic products can refer to this document for implementation.
