At Chinadata, empowering the green low-carbon development of our business and creating a better life with computing are our two intrinsic goals. We were one of the first in the industry to set out a 100% renewable energy target and a Carbon Neutrality Roadmap, which we have incorporated into our whole life cycle green development strategy, underpinned by the enablers of: green site selection, green design, green procurement, green manufacturing, and green operation. We are also working closely with partners on both the upstream and downstream of the industrial chain in pursuit of sustainable growth; while making significant cuts in our energy consumption, and increasing our green energy utilization ration to do our part to attain China’s national goal of carbon peak and carbon neutrality, and meet the net zero emission targets set out in the Paris Agreement.
In line with the “zero carbon emission” concept, we have set forth our DATA ESG Strategy built on decarbonization leadership (Decarbonization), alignment with ecosystem (Alignment), driven by technology (Technology) and advanced attitude (Advanced), so as to promote the development and progress of the data center industry.
