Huawei releases its 2015 Sustainability Report
Posted on 11-Aug-2016 19:03 | Tags Filed under: News



Huawei has released its 2015 Sustainability Report entitled ‘Connecting the Future’ which sets out its contribution, during the past year, to the fight against global climate change; new initiatives to address the digital divide; the company’s responsibilities to maintaining the stability and security of telecommunications networks; its work in supporting the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.

 

Kevin Tao, chairman of Huawei’s Corporate Sustainability Development (CSD) Committee, remarked, “Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is crucial for human progress in modern society, and connectivity-centered ICT technologies are catalyzing transformation in every industry. In addition to boosting business efficiency and enriching people’s lives, ICT is transforming societies in ways that create economic opportunities, protect the environment, and make our world more sustainable.”

 

Huawei has been optimizing its effort for sustainable development and aims to integrate sustainability firmly across the company so it is aligned with corporate business strategies. “Business growth is not our only goal, as we are equally committed to fulfilling our corporate social responsibilities and pursuing sustainable development. We hope to join hands with our partners to build a harmonious business environment and for a Better Connected World,” said Mr Tao.

 

On Huawei’s sustainability development priorities and direction, Mr Tao commented, “With the rapid change in technology development, the way of technology application is ever evolving. Our stakeholders are placing increasingly high requirements on us, and we are striving to turn these challenges into competitive advantage. In 2016 we will focus our efforts on bridging the digital divide and enabling information access for more people, optimizing our eco-design skills to provide more energy-efficient products and solutions, implementing our circular economy strategy to minimize the environmental impact of our smartphones, and continuing the supplier energy conservation and emissions programs to build a greener global supply chain.”
