Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, sponsored the fifth International Conference on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) that took place from October 4 to 6 in Berlin, Germany. It was jointly organized by Humboldt-Universiät zu Berlin and several well known scientific and political institutions.
The conference was the opportunity to address the future of CSR by exploring whether more collaboration between the most relevant global entities can bring more consistency across different institutions. More than 550 participants attended the event.
Alan Aicken, Vice President of Supplier Sustainability Management, Huawei, referred in a speech to the significance of CSR for a worldwide leading ICT-provider, “Sustainability plays a crucial role in our CSR activities. Our clients expect us to adapt, embrace and drive sustainability principles and actions throughout the total supply chain.”
Huawei believes that fulfilling corporate social responsibilities everywhere we operate is crucial to maintaining sustainable development and promoting harmony in the natural environment, the industry chain, and among our employees and communities. We define CSR and Sustainability management as a strategic priority and have strengthened our efforts to fulfill the commitments we have made to customers, caring for our employees, bridging the digital divide, protecting the environment, pursuing technological innovations, adhering to ethical principles regarding procurement and business, and giving back to society.
