Hailed as one of the highest CSR honor in Asia, the 2021 Asia Responsible Enterprise Awards were held on September 2. CHIMEI won the Green Leadership Award for its CHIMEI Green Energy Park, an indication of the international recognition of CHIMEI’s efforts in promoting green sustainability.
Organized by Enterprise Asia—the leading CSR promotion NGO in Asia, the Asia Responsible Enterprise Awards (AREA) recognize and reward enterprises that promote sustainability and corporate social responsibility. Since the Awards’ inception, 500 exemplary enterprises from more than 19 countries have been selected in the past decade, attesting to the influence of the awards. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 awards ceremony was held online. With “CHIMEI Green Energy Park—Harmonious Power Plant with Green Energy and Lush Trees”, CHIMEI won the Green Leadership Award, standing out from more than 200 participating companies throughout Asia. The park’s defining feature is the harmonious co-existence of clean energy generation and the existing forest, making it a culmination of the company’s efforts in green construction, promoting the circular economy, and ecological conservation. Adhering to its “Clean and Green” vision, CHIMEI has long paid attention to eco-friendliness and sustainable energy development issues and continues to take concrete actions to express its high concern for environmental protection and achieve the UN’s sustainable development goals (SDGs).
Currently, the capacity of CHIMEI’s solar power generation has reached 22 MW, the equivalent of the annual electricity consumption of 8,100 households. As a continued effort to reduce carbon emissions, CHIMEI has also implemented a number of green innovation projects, including the CHIMEI Cogeneration Plant—which has been under planning for a long time coming and is set to be completed and inaugurated in November 2022. The plant is expected to generate 500 GWh per year, and will be able to achieve an annual carbon reduction volume of 124,000 tons. In the future, CHIMEI will be able to meet the target of reducing emissions by 36%, and achieving 80% energy self-sufficiency from clean energy sources.
CHIMEI continues to search for innovative approaches to invest in green manufacturing, green energy, and circular economy so as to improve energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and move closer to its goal of “Clean and Green.” It is the company’s vision to strive toward a cleaner, more eco-friendly future, and work with everyone under the slogan “A Step Up” to contribute to a sustainable world.
