WUXI, China, Sept. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Suntech Power Holdings Co., Ltd. (NYSE: STP), the world's largest producer of solar panels, was recognized by the World Economic Forum as a New Sustainability Champion in their recent report entitled 'Redefining the Future Growth: The New Sustainability Champions'. Suntech was the only solar company to be named New Sustainability Champion, underscoring its commitment and achievement to continually lead the renewable energy industry in terms of sustainability and innovation.

Additionally, the World Economic Forum and BCG analyzed over 1,000 businesses around the world and identified 16 fast-growth companies, including Suntech, who demonstrated ability in tackling challenges of performance, innovation, sustainability and growth.

"Suntech stands out as a New Sustainability Champion, a company fully committed to business excellence and the improvement of society," said Jerry Yu, Director, Center for Global Growth Companies, World Economic Forum.
