ESG Anniversary

Against the backdrop of severe challenges such as extreme climate change and the shortening of global supply chains, ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) has become a key tool for listed companies to enhance their market presence and expand their business footprint. It is not only a key force in dealing with the new order of globalization, but has also become an important standard for measuring the overall performance of companies. On the environmental perspective, companies need to focus not only on their own environmental protection measures, but also actively contribute to energy consumption, carbon emissions and resource management; on the social perspective, it is important to focus on employee rights and interests, community relations and supply chain management to enhance social responsibility; and on the corporate governance perspective, it is crucial to establish a transparent and efficient management structure to ensure fair and transparent corporate governance.

As the only representative of electrical and new energy companies invited to give a keynote speech, Ms. Zhang Zhihuan, Director of the CHINT Group and President of CHINT Global, spoke on the topic of “Practicing Sustainable Development is the Essential Question for Corporate Globalization” and shared her insights into CHINT’s exploration of ESG practices and experiences, integrating ESG into the business so that ESG continues to contribute to the development of the company, and promoting internationalisation by leveraging the pulling effect of ESG. Ms. Zhang Zhihuan said that as a leading global provider of intelligent energy system solutions, CHINT has always been a pioneer, explorer, and practitioner of green and low-carbon development, and has actively integrated ESG into its business and corporate development strategy to help companies go overseas from “scale priority” to “high-quality development”. In addition, CHINT’s Director of Public Relationship, Mr. Gu Hao, shared with the heads of CDP, Sustainalytics, SEDEX and other organisations, as well as representatives from Zijin Mining, Dun & Bradstreet and other companies in a round-table forum at the conference that CHINT has made significant contributions to the global community through the construction of its own sustainability system, the provision of green and low-carbon products and solutions, compliance management, the enhancement of employee satisfaction, and global CSR initiatives, MSCI, EcoVadis, etc. continuously and proactively respond to relevant requirements and demands.


Ms. Zhang Zhihuan introduced CHINT’s experience in building up the advantages of the whole chain to continuously empower global partners with safer, greener, more convenient, and more efficient energy, and to help industries develop in a green, low-carbon, and high-quality way. Focusing on the core businesses of green energy, smart electrics, and intelligent low-carbon industries, CHINT has formed an industry-wide competitive advantage, and continues to empower customers in various industries to decarbonize with green digital intelligence solutions. CHINT is also actively working with countries along the “Belt and Road”, not only becoming a global model of sustainable development with its green energy projects, but also establishing joint venture factories in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Thailand and other places through its global regional localization strategy. Relying on research institutes, manufacturing bases, and international logistics centers around the world, CHINT integrated system of international production, research, and marketing, and has demonstrated excellent global delivery capabilities while exploring overseas market.

In order to better co-ordinate and promote the work related to sustainable development, CHINT formally established the Sustainable Development Committee in 2024. As a leading company in the electric power and new energy industry, CHINT bears the responsibility of the industry and society, and is committed to sustainable development. At the “2023 CHINT Global Development Conference and the 10th International Marketing Conference (CIMF)”, CHINT and the international consulting organization A.T.
