On March 8, 2024, Ms. BeiBei Zheng, Vice President of CHINT Global, was invited to attend the launch ceremony of “WOMEN AT WORK: Chinese companies taking action on gender equality — Guidance and Good Practices to Advance ESG and the Sustainable Development Goals in the Second Half of the 2030 Agenda” held in Beijing. This event, initiated by the United Nations Global Compact, aimed to explore and share the achievements and experiences of Chinese enterprises in gender equality, creating inclusive workplaces, and implementing Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) concepts and principles.

The event also welcomed Changhee Lee, Director of the International Labour Organization for China and Mongolia, Cheng Jin, Corporate Social Responsibility expert at UNICEF, Han Ruiyun, editorial board member of the 21st Century EconomicReport, and senior representatives from case study companies such as Esquel Group,, Lenovo, and Xiamen Airlines. They participated in discussions on how enterprises can continue to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for 2030, offering valuable insights.

As the first report by the United Nations Global Compact focusing on the good practices of Chinese enterprises in promoting gender equality, the guide compiles cases and stories of female employees from eight Chinese enterprises, including CHINT Global. It highlights fair workplace opportunities, safe and healthy work environments, and family-friendly workplaces, showcasing specific actions and good practices undertaken by Chinese enterprises in gender equality. This provides valuable practice references for both Chinese and global enterprises, offering a practical roadmap for companies to support gender equality. Four outstanding female employees of CHINT, from different countries and in different positions, and their stories have been collected in the guide.

Ms. Beibei Zheng also highlighted that as society progresses and awareness of gender equality increases, more women are making significant contributions in the fields of technology and new energy. CHINT fosters an open and inclusive corporate culture, not only nurturing female talent in areas like photovoltaic technology and overseas sales but also encouraging partners and supply chain members to commit to gender equality, thus promoting sustainable development across the industry.

Looking ahead, CHINT will continue to focus on gender equality and diversity, providing equal opportunities and support for women and working with partners to advance the gender equality process.
