Huawei Publishes Annual Sustainability Report

Huawei published its annual Sustainability Report covering its activities over the past year in bridging the digital divide, promoting environmental protection, and seeking win-win outcomes with business partners and employees.

Some highlights of the 108-page report:

  • Deployed more than 50% of wireless base stations, over 70% of LTE networks, and at least 50,000 kilometers of optical fiber cable in Africa to provide better digital connectivity to the continent
  • Collaborated with customers to build over 500 new base stations in Sri Lanka
  • Provided network access for 50,000 Ethiopian students across 64 schools
  • Responded to the 8.1 magnitude earthquake in Nepal, restoring key base stations at hospitals, government agencies, disaster relief centers and embassies within 24 hours, and ensuring vital communications services were available to emergency services and victims, particularly during peak network usage
  • Developed lower powered chips and improved hardware design, software and dynamic energy management, which in turn helped to increase energy efficiency of core routers and wireless based stations by 25% and 20% respectively
  • Six Huawei handsets obtained leading environmental certifications based on the UL110 standard, with five of them achieving platinum level. Huawei’s entire range of campus network switches were also certified with the Green Product Mark of TÜV Rheinland
  • Saved 44.3 million kWh of electricity, reducing energy consumption per unit of sales revenue by 13.8% year-on-year
  • Generated 20 million kWh of electricity through our in-house solar power stations, reducing CO2 emissions by approximately 18,000 tons
  • Worked with suppliers to reduce over 72,000 tons of CO2 emissions
  • Introduced clean energy programs through increased employee awareness, energy management, improved technology, refined product packaging and redesigned logistics and transportation systems to reduced Carbon emissions from manufacturing to save 9,639,800 kWh of electricity, equivalent to a reduction in CO2 emissions of 9,011 tons
  • Expanded a global green recycling program to recycle used mobile phones in 23 countries, helping to maximize product value and ensure legal disposal
