Accelerate the sustainable process, urgently need pioneer empowerment

At the Yicai 2022 Zero Carbon Summit, which opened on the same day, Yin Zheng, global executive vice president of Schneider Electric and president of China, delivered a keynote speech. He believes that innovation and collaboration are the keys to promoting carbon reduction. “For enterprises to move towards sustainable development, they must first comprehensively promote innovation, including technologies, products, processes, and business models. Second, they must strengthen collaboration. Carbon emissions have broken the original system boundaries, and all levels need to collaborate with each other. Enterprises should assume the ‘ecological role’, build a diversified and deepened ecological cooperation chain, and join hands with ecological partners to move towards ‘zero carbon’.”

In the practice of carbon reduction, enterprises face many challenges. Xiong Yi, Senior Vice President of Schneider Electric, Head of Strategy and Business Development China, and Dean of the Business Value Research Institute, pointed out that companies generally face four major challenges: lack of top-level planning, limited technical capabilities, insufficient management culture, and supply chain management. It is in the aspects of production process transformation, management process remodeling and new technology integration, which urgently need the experience empowerment and mutual cooperation of pioneers.

What kind of companies can become excellent enablers, thereby driving the carbon reduction of the entire industrial chain and even the ecosystem? Xiong Yi believes, “First of all, the enterprise itself must be a successful practitioner. In addition, it must have implementable solutions and a broad ecosystem. At the same time, it must have strong innovation capabilities to drive the common progress of the upstream and downstream industries.” “Carbon Reduction Master” is an enabler that combines the above characteristics, Xiong Yi shared with Schneider Electric as an example, “We not only started to take sustainability as a core strategy as early as 2002, integrated it into all aspects of our business, and launched Sustainable solutions from planning to implementation, creating an open ecological model and a strong ecosystem, and using local innovation capabilities as a powerful engine to continuously empower customers.” It is reported that China has become one of Schneider Electric’s four major R&D bases in the world. , the research and development results are not only used in the local market, but also benefit the world.

Schneider Electric hopes to build an important platform for gathering pioneers and fully empowering more partners through the “Carbon Reduction Master” program. For corporate users who join the program, through this platform, they can have the opportunity to have in-depth exchanges with experts and scholars, and use the dual-carbon strategic planning and consulting services provided by Schneider Electric, as well as leading digital solutions, to promote their own carbon reduction process. For the general public, Schneider Electric and Beijing Green Exchange jointly launched a personal carbon footprint measurement tool to help the public explore a more sustainable way of life by optimizing the carbon footprint of daily life.

In order to further promote the low-carbon transformation of partners, the “Carbon Reduction Master” program also established the “Sustainable Impact Partner Award”, which is divided into two categories: “Benchmarking Enterprise Award” and “Customer Empowerment Award”. Digital tools and intelligent means to electrify operations, optimize energy supply, improve operational efficiency, and create an outstanding partner company for a circular value chain. The selection has been launched simultaneously. The list of winners in China will be announced at the end of November 2022, and the list of global winners will be announced in the first quarter of 2023.

Digital technology helps to promote the overall carbon reduction of the ecosystem

In addition to collaboration, technology is an important driving force for corporate carbon reduction. Chai Qimin, director of the Strategic Planning Department of the National Climate Strategy Center, said: “Faced with the challenge of carbon reduction, digital technology can improve energy efficiency, promote system optimization, coordinate upstream and downstream industry chains, promote new production and consumption patterns, and bring great benefits to all walks of life. Large-scale technological change, thus building a green and low-carbon industrial ecology. The evaluation shows that the leverage effect of digital technology in carbon emission reduction can reach 10 times, so companies must make good use of digitalization as a powerful tool to accelerate carbon reduction.”

At the launch ceremony on the same day, guests from JD Logistics, ExxonMobil, Shenshi Zero Carbon Technology, and Shanghai Energy Conservation and Emission Reduction Center had a roundtable dialogue with Zhang Lei, Vice President of Schneider Electric and Head of China Digital Service Business, and in-depth Explore how to use digital technology to improve quality and efficiency.

Qi Kang, deputy general manager and chief engineer of Shanghai Energy Conservation and Emission Reduction Center, believes that there are three key points for enterprises to promote digital carbon reduction: “First, we must find out the ‘family’ of carbon emissions through digitalization. Second, through digitalization, carbon emissions management and business The management is fully integrated. Thirdly, the boundary of carbon reduction will be broadened through the open mechanism, and the supply chain will be empowered to reduce carbon.”

Yue Chunyang, Managing Director of ExxonMobil’s China Lubricants Business, said: “Faced with the core needs of cost reduction, efficiency increase and green carbon reduction, enterprises themselves must first carry out digital upgrades and explore the growth points of efficiency improvement. Second, they must solve problems through digitalization. The solution realizes scientific and predictive operation and maintenance, helping users to improve efficiency in an all-round way. Third, we must actively carry out cooperation and collaborative innovation.”

In addition to the enterprise itself, the supply chain is also an important place for carbon reduction, and digital technology is also the key to promoting carbon reduction in the supply chain. The Deputy Secretary General of the Green Supply Chain Special Committee of the All-China Environmental Protection Federation, Vice President of JD Logistics, and Product Manager of the Smart Park, said: “Relying on digital technologies such as 5G, internet of Vehicles, and digital twins, the logistics park can open up operations and logistics in the cabin. Information flow in all links such as transportation and terminal distribution, thereby improving the overall efficiency and energy efficiency of the supply chain. We must join hands with upstream and downstream to create and share, and to accelerate carbon reduction at a lower cost.”

How enterprises can promote digital transformation through internal and external management, Zhang Lei shared that: “Enterprises should truly integrate digital technology into business, empower OT with IT, and create value for business. More partners can jointly improve the efficiency of the ecosystem, thereby reducing the overall carbon emissions of the value chain, and jointly moving towards a win-win situation for economic and social benefits.”
