Huawei's Antuoshan industrial park and Shenzhen-based company Sunwoda were included in the city’s first batch of near-zero emission pilot projects.

Huawei is building the world’s largest industrial park with a nearly zero carbon footprint in Antuoshan, Futian District, as part of its effort to contribute to the country’s green development goals.

After being put into use this year as anticipated, the park will generate annually 1.5 million kWh of nonfossil electricity and reduce power use by half to realize carbon neutrality, said the company.

Moreover, the company has cooperated with Futian District Government on 18 key low-carbon projects, aiming to jointly build Futian into a near-zero carbon emission demonstration area in mega cities.

Sunwoda Electronic Co. Ltd., the world leader in the lithium-ion battery industry, said it aims to achieve carbon peaking at the operational level in 2029 and carbon neutrality at the operational level in 2050.

The company invested 11.27 million yuan (US$1.67 million) in energy-saving and pollution-reduction transformation throughout last year, and has achieved the goal of reducing 10% of its energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions by 16,445 tons, according to the company’s social responsibility report 2021.

Sunwoda successfully built a zero-carbon industrial park featuring distributed integrated energy systems in Boluo County, Huizhou.

The experience accumulated from this case enabled the company to promote its low-carbon industrial park solutions in other cities including Nanjing, Nanchang and Zaozhuang.
