Item 1.01.Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report

 

Conflict Minerals Disclosure

 

JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (“JinkoSolar”) is a global leader in the solar industry. JinkoSolar distributes its solar products and sells its solutions and services to a diversified international utility, commercial and residential customer base in China, the United States, Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom, Chile, South Africa, India, Mexico, Brazil, the United Arab Emirates, Italy, Spain, France, Belgium, and other countries and regions. JinkoSolar has built a vertically integrated solar product value chain, with an integrated annual capacity of 5.0 GW for silicon ingots and wafers, 4.0 GW for solar cells, and 6.5 GW for solar modules, as of December 31, 2016.

 

JinkoSolar has over 15,000 employees across its 6 productions facilities in Jiangxi, Zhejiang and Xinjiang Provinces, China, Malaysia, Portugal and South Africa, 15 oversea subsidiaries in Japan, Singapore, India, Turkey, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Australia and South Africa, and 18 global sales offices in China, United Kingdom, Bulgaria, Greece, Romania, United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Egypt, Morocco, Ghana, Kenya, Costa Rica, Colombia, Brazil and Mexico.

 

The disclosures set forth herein for the reporting period from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016 are presented to comply with Rule 13p-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. According to section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and the definition in the Form SD and for the purposes of this assessment, “conflict minerals” are defined as columbite-tantalite (coltan), cassiterite, gold, wolframite, and their derivatives, which are limited to tantalum, tin and tungsten.

 

Description of Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry

 

JinkoSolar has taken the following steps as part of its reasonable country of origin inquiry to determine whether any conflict minerals may have originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country:

 

·Prepared a list of the materials used during the production of its products;

 

·Determined whether any conflict minerals were necessary to the functionality or production of products manufactured or contracted to be manufactured by JinkoSolar (“necessary conflict minerals”);

 

·Identified the suppliers whose products contained necessary conflict minerals (“Suppliers in Concern”);

 

·Requested that the Suppliers in Concern provide a statement on where they obtained their products and materials that contained conflict minerals and the origin for these products and materials; and

 

·Analyzed whether the necessary conflict minerals used by JinkoSolar during the reporting period may have originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country or whether they were from scrap or recycled sources.

JinkoSolar determined that during the reporting period, the only conflict mineral necessary to the functionality or production of products that it manufactures or contracts to be manufactured was tin. Tin-coated copper ribbon used in the production of solar modules uses tin. JinkoSolar has made inquiries with all its suppliers of tin-coated copper ribbon about the source of the tin used in their products and further requested that these suppliers provide confirmation of origin for the tin contained in their products. JinkoSolar does not make purchases of raw ore or unrefined conflict minerals and makes no purchases in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or adjoining countries.

 

Determination

 

Based on JinkoSolar’s reasonable country of origin inquiry, JinkoSolar has no reason to believe that its necessary conflict minerals may have originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country.
