JinkoSolar Holding Co. Ltd. , a global leader in the photovoltaic (PV) industry, recently announced that the Company has climbed from 437th to 330th position in the latest China Fortune 500 list.Rising 107 places is enough to land the Company on the China Fortune 500 list of biggest year-on-year improvement, and is the company’s highest rank yet.
Fortune ranks companies by a number of factors, including their 2015 revenue. According to Fortune, JinkoSolar total revenues were RMB16.08 billion (USD2.4 billion) in 2015, an increase of 61.1% from 2014.
Each year the Fortune 500 list ranks the titans of industry, and there’s always a special focus on the companies with the largest gains in rank. After a record-setting year of sales, it shouldn’t be much of a surprise that JinkoSolar has been the fastest growing and the most sustainable company in the global solar PV industry.
“We are so encouraged to hear the news that in 2015 JinkoSolar again ranked in the China Fortune 500 list and soared to its greatest heights yet, moving up 107 spots to No. 330,” commented Mr. Chen Kangping, CEO of JinkoSolar.
“Ballooning module sales last year might have had something to do with Jinkosolar’s jump in its Fortune 500 ranking, but the company accomplished a significant number of other achievements too. We connected and operated over 1 GW of solar plants by the end of 2015, pioneering a strong presence in the Chinese distributed generation market. All that hard work has paid off.”
