Environmental Protection

We aim to use technology to address global environmental issues and create a greener future where humanity and nature live in harmony.

Overview

According to GeSI's SMARTer 2030 report, ICT emissions as a percentage of global carbon emissions will decrease over time due to the expected improvements in the energy efficiency of ICT products. ICT's own carbon footprint is expected to reach 1.25Gt in 2030, or 1.97% of global emissions. The report also found that by rolling out ICT solutions across the global economy, the total global carbon emissions could be cut by 12Gt by 2030, nearly 10 times higher than ICT's expected footprint. 

ICT is playing an increasingly important role in addressing global environmental issues, and is helping make progress in achieving the SDGs. ICT can help reduce power consumption and emissions in every industry, utilize more renewable energy, and mitigate the impacts of climate change.

Huawei's vision is to bring digital to every person, home and organization for a fully connected, intelligent world. To make this vision a reality, Huawei will continue to focus on ICT infrastructure and smart devices as we work with our partners to enable the digital and intelligent transformation of every industry. These efforts will help us create greater value for our customers and society, and allow everyone to benefit from digital technology. This intelligent world will also be a greener one where humans and nature live in harmony.

Our Commitment: Tech for a Better Planet

As part of our commitment to technology for a better planet, we will invest more in the following three areas:

  • Reducing carbon emissions: Our green ICT solutions will enable industries to reduce power consumption and emissions. We will continue to make the operations of both Huawei and our supply chains greener and take steps to reduce carbon emissions.
  • Promoting renewable energy: We will continue investing more in renewable energy and providing green power for the intelligent world. We will also drive the transition to renewable energy and make the most of it.
  • Contributing to a circular economy: We will improve well-being by using less resources.

Our environmental protection targets for 2025:

  • Reduce carbon emissions (Scope 1 and Scope 2) per million RMB of revenue by 16% compared with 2019
  • Increase the energy efficiency of our main products by 2.7 times compared with 2019
  • 22%

    Increase in energy efficiency of our main products

  • 32.7%

    Decrease GHG emissions intensity over the base year

  • 86%

    Recycling rate for returned products

Areas of Focus

Reducing Carbon Emissions

We use our technologies to address the increased power consumption of our high-performing equipment and to minimize our carbon footprint. We hold ourselves to high standards for greener operations and constantly look for opportunities to reduce carbon emissions. We are also carrying out green partner programs in which we work with our suppliers to reduce power consumption and emissions and build a greener ecosystem.

Promoting Renewable Energy

Countries, regions, and organizations are increasingly concerned about accessing and using renewable energy. We hope that we can play an active role in the transition from fossil fuels to clean and renewable energy.

Contributing to a Circular Economy

To use less raw materials and make the most of resources, we are taking steps from the very beginning – the design stage. These include using more eco-friendly materials, reducing the raw materials needed, making products more durable and easier to disassemble, and improving the product recycling system. Huawei maximizes material utilization and minimizes resource consumption throughout the lifecycle of its products. This is how we promote the circular economy.
