  • ESG Drives Integrated Management in Chinese Companies

The 2024 Zhongguancun Forum, held from April 25th to 29th, brought sustainable development to the forefront of discussion. ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) principles and carbon neutrality were spotlighted  as essential elements of sustainable development.

In the energy sector, simultaneously ensuring safety, economy viability, and environmental protection  is  often seen  as the “energy impossible triangle.” Zhu Yaming, Managing Partner of Energy and Infrastructure and Carbon Neutrality at Ernst & Young Greater China, highlighted how the  energy transition can help address this challenge. Over the past two years, China has made significant strides in implementing ESG practices, demonstrating a growing commitment to sustainable development.

Du Xiangwan, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, former Vice President of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, and Chairman of the China Carbon Neutrality Forum, underscored the importance of environmental, social, and governance factors as value-based assessments for measuring a company’s ability and performance in sustainable development.

The forum also featured insights from experts representing Tsinghua University, the Chinese Institute of Green Carbon, and other leading energy research institutions. Their contributions  enriched  discussions on ESG and carbon neutrality, emphasizing the crucial role of integrated management in Chinese companies.
