ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise, and consumer technology solutions for the mobile Internet, announced today that Ms. Chen Zhiping, vice president and general manager of ZTE’s branding division, has announced that it has acquired a Delivered a keynote address entitled “A Digital Road to Carbon Neutrals”. Chen Zhiping, Vice President and General Manager of ZTE’s Branding Department, delivered a keynote address entitled “A Digital Road to Carbon Neutrality,” on how ZTE can help companies in various industries use energy to save, reduce emissions and finally to promote the achievement of the societal goal of carbon neutrality through ZTE’s digital technological innovations.

“In order to achieve the goals and challenges of energy saving and emission reduction across the industry, we believe that digitization will help traditional industries,” said Ms. Chen.

As a driving force of the digital economy, ZTE is leveraging technological innovations to pave the green boulevard for the digital economy and promoting the achievement of the dual carbon goal through green operations, green supply chains, green ICT infrastructure and green industry.

Below is a summary of Ms. Chen’s speech:

Did you feel that the temperature in 2020 was a bit unusual apart from the spread of COVID-19 around the world? In June 2020, a Siberian city on the Arctic Circle reached a maximum temperature of 38 degrees! This is the highest temperature ever recorded in the Arctic Circle. If the global temperature rise is limited to 1.5 degrees, many losses and risks caused by climate change can be avoided.

Currently, carbon neutrality has become a global consensus.

As of June 2021, 137 countries have proposed a carbon neutralization target and more than 1200 companies have committed to join SBTi, with the global ICT giants leading the way in setting strategic goals for carbon neutrality. China has announced commitments and targets for carbon emissions.

Digital technology plays a key role in achieving the goal of carbon neutrality

If we are to achieve the goal of global carbon neutrality, traditional industries face the greater challenge of reducing their consumption. The ICT industry is responsible for 2% of the world’s total carbon emissions every year. With the increasing spread of digital infrastructures, reducing ICT emissions is also facing major challenges. The ITU (International Telecommunication Union) has announced that the ICT industry will reduce its emissions by 45% by 2030.

With the acceleration of digital transformation, the technologies represented by 5G, big data, cloud computing and artificial intelligence have been continuously improved, and digital technologies are increasingly being used in all areas of life.

We can improve the efficiency of resource allocation, production and life through efficient data connections, storage, computation and applications. Much research shows that digital technology can help other industries reduce carbon emissions by more than ten times the carbon emissions of the ICT industry. It is becoming clear that digital technology plays a key role in achieving the goal of carbon neutrality.

ZTE is setting a good example in the digital transformation and is embarking on a green development path

As a positive advocate of green development, ZTE promotes environmental management in the office and in production to reduce the consumption of natural resources.

The company has taken a number of measures to reduce the company’s carbon emissions, such as: B. the pursuit of an environmentally friendly production and the saving of resources and energy through a continuous reorganization of the production processes.

By optimizing the production process (aging at high temperatures), more than 30 million kWh of electricity can be saved annually. We started tracking the carbon footprint throughout the product lifecycle. We promote smart air conditioning and smart lighting to reduce power consumption while creating a comfortable working environment for employees. The green photovoltaic power generation generates more than 3 million kWh of electricity annually. In addition, the company is working with more than 160 global environmental service providers to build a global network for green cycles.

Our carbon target also depends on the decarbonization process of upstream products and services. We work with upstream and downstream partners to jointly achieve energy savings and emission reductions in the selection of materials, material recycling and logistics.

To date, more than 40 leading suppliers have developed strategic plans to reduce carbon emissions. Most suppliers will come from partners who want to get involved in the next 5 to 10 years. Procurement management promotes suppliers’ carbon emissions in a variety of ways. It continuously improves the competitiveness of our supply chain in terms of low carbon emissions and sustainable development.

Green digital infrastructure helps operators build low-carbon networks

With digital infrastructure, most of the energy consumed goes to wireless locations and data centers. Carbon emissions can be reduced through the introduction of green electricity, building greener sites and greener data centers.

In building the energy infrastructure of the communication network, ZTE proposed a new “carbon-free” energy network with the concept of “green, efficient, intelligent and reliable” in order to increase the share of green energy applications.

With the annual increase in communication traffic and the widespread introduction of 5G, the share of energy consumption at the site in the energy consumption of the entire network exceeds 45%, which is the key to reducing emissions.

As a leading provider of ICT equipment, ZTE Corporation has incorporated the concept of low carbon environmental protection into site product development and solution implementation to continuously add value to green site creation.

With the development of various data and cloud services, data centers are also giants of energy consumption, including IT equipment, cooling systems, power and distribution systems, and lighting systems, with IT equipment and cooling systems alone accounting for 80% of energy consumption. Equipped with ZTE’s ZEGO solution, it can solve the problem of the devices’ energy consumption.

Currently, the UniSite, PowerPilot and iEnergy solutions proposed by ZTE are widely used in the networks of global operators, helping them to save energy and reduce consumption.

  • In Spain, ZTE used the UniSite + solution, currently the simplest location solution in the industry. It reduces the number of radio units by 60% and saves 30% electricity compared to conventional solutions.
  • The AI ​​energy-saving solution PowerPilot was successfully introduced in Malaysia and saves 7 million kWh of electricity annually.
  • Together with its customers, ZTE has built Asia’s largest intelligent data center with micromodules in the Pingshan district of Shenzhen, which saves more than 60 million kWh of electricity every year.

Together with customers and partners who help numerous industries to save energy and reduce emissions

For the past two years, ZTE has worked with network operators and industry leaders to research environmentally friendly and energy-saving application scenarios in various industries and to develop innovative applications that can be replicated on a large scale.

  • To introduce green energy, China Southern Power Grid, together with China Mobile and ZTE, has set up the largest demonstration zone for a 5G smart grid in China in the Nansha district in Guangzhou. Services significantly reduce the impact of the new energy access on the power grid. The reliability of the transmission of renewable energies will increase fourfold in the future.
  • In the energy-intensive smelting industry, ZTE and the Aluminum Corporation of China have successfully researched 5G applications, saving more than 90 million kWh of electricity per year.
  • For the transportation industry, ZTE and Guangzhou Mobile have released the world’s first 5G smart transportation demonstration city, which includes a smart bullet train, smart subway, 5G bus dispatching line, 5G smart network connection, and 5G roadside control system . The overall efficiency of the disposition is increased by 10%.
