ISMANING, Germany -- February 21, 2014

Hanwha SolarOne Co., Ltd. (the “Company”, or “Hanwha SolarOne”), a global
leading photovoltaic (PV) provider of high-quality, cost competitive solar
photovoltaic modules, is among the first PV manufacturers to have its solar
modules certified with the new international standard for carbon footprint
assessment, ISO 14067. The certificates were issued by German safety standard
authority TÜV Rheinland in January 2014.

The ISO 14067 is an internationally recognized technical specification for
quantifying carbon emissions throughout a product’s life cycle. For products
that are part of a supply chain, the standard involves a partial assessment
“From cradle to Factory-Gate” to ensure the highest possible accuracy. In
order to secure a viable methodology for different product groups, the
standard specifies different Product Category Rules (PCR). The solar modules
from Hanwha SolarOne, HSL 60 Poly and HSL 72 Poly, were assessed according to
the Product Category Rules for crystalline solar cells.

“The documentation of greenhouse gas emissions is of increasing importance,
especially in markets where tenders and green certificates are significant
market drivers,” said Winfried Wahl, Senior Director of Products and Marketing
at Hanwha SolarOne GmbH. “A standardized and internationally recognized
assessment is crucial for meaningful benchmarking. We are proud to receive
carbon footprint certificates in accordance with the new ISO standard, thereby
contributing to increased transparency in the industry.”
