ZTE’s corporate vision was redefined in 2018 to reflect its aspiration for society and intent to be a global leader in information and communications technology (ICT). These sentiments —”to enable connectivity and trust everywhere” and “to connect the world with continuous innovation for a better future” — and the company’s work therein was recently highlighted in its 2018 Sustainability Report.
Overall, ZTE is “dedicated to using innovative technologies to accelerate the development of information technology in the world, promoting the sustainable development of human society and the continuous progress of human civilization.”
Environmental considerations are integrated in the advanced management processes and quality standards that drive design and operation. The company seeks to constantly improve the energy efficiency of its products to reduce carbon emissions to allow customers to make better choices and minimize their own impact.
Three achievements in this area include: the Asian IDC Green Power Award, start of construction of the Energy Management Center System and the introduction of a three-level energy management task force.
Environmentally-friendly development is a core concept throughout the lifecycle of product development — from customer demand, product design/R&D, raw material verification, product fabrication, product distribution and product recycling and disposal.
Low-energy services are also a top priority. The company implements green production and management practices according to ISO14001 Environmental Management System and ISO50001 Energy Management System and emphasizes energy conservation and emission reduction in its operations and products.
ZTE recognizes that sustainable development is also dependent on the broader ecosystem. To that end, it takes a “safe, precise, intelligent, reliable and efficient (SPIRE)” approach to its supply chain and has strengthened cooperation in environmental protection, disputed resources, labor protection and other aspects.
