Huawei: Enabling APAC green transformation to tackle climate change

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Aug. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Working with cross-sector partners, Huawei vows to enable the green transformation and supports on carbon emission cutting to tackle climate issues in the Asia Pacific region, Kevin Zhang Huawei's Chief Marketing Officer of ICT infrastructure said at the Tech for a Better Planet Webinar on Thursday.

The webinar, co-organized by IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) and Huawei, and supported by ITU (International Telecommunication Union), brought together industrial experts and opinion leaders from the ICT and environmental protection communities across the Asia Pacific region. This two-part webinar series explored how technology can drive environmental protection and ensure sustainable development in Asia Pacific.

"Now more than ever, we need to re-assess our relationship with nature and move faster towards nature-positive and low-carbon growth models. We believe that technology is a key part of the solution," said Kevin Zhang, CMO of Huawei ICT infrastructure.

Panelists at the "Green Technology" session of the webinar emphasized that technology can work in harmony with nature and help Asia Pacific nations to accomplish green transformation, especially for the economic recovery in the post pandemic era.

"ICT has become central to conversations around environmental sustainability," said Yondeen Sherpa, E-waste Policy and Technology Consultant at the Environment & Emergency Telecommunications Division of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). To contribute to the pursuit of the SDGs, ITU is working together with members like Huawei to develop international standards and provided measurement methodologies addressing ICT, environment, and circular economy.
