The 21st century has seen a sharp increase in the severity of climate change, melting glaciers, plastic pollution, soaring e-waste, and other environmental problems, forcing us to reassess our relationship with nature. Even since the signing of the Paris Agreement in 2015, global warming has been still accelerating. However, we are happy to see that more and more countries have committed to the goal of carbon neutrality and are taking more action to slow climate change. Carbon neutrality will mean the shift from the fossil fuel era to a clean energy era. More and more countries and companies are investing in and using more renewable energy. To reduce our carbon footprint and the negative impact of human activities on the environment, people are exploring and developing the circular economy so that we can get the most out of the resources we use.
As a leading global provider of ICT infrastructure and smart devices, Huawei believes that technology will play a critical role as we move towards a cleaner planet. We are working to protect the planet with our technology and to contribute to a sustainable world while providing green connectivity. Specifically, we focus on three areas:
of our top 100 suppliers set a carbon emission reduction target
of the electricity we used in China came from renewable energy sources, equivalent to reducing CO2 emissions by 188,000 tons
decrease in carbon emissions per million RMB of sales revenue compared to the base year (2012), beating the target (30%) we set in 2016
of smart device e-waste processed by our own recycling stations
Huawei is committed to exploring how to contribute more to the circular economy, reducing our reliance on natural resources, and providing customers with more eco-friendly products.Learn More
