JD.com was granted the “Annual Model for Low-carbon in 2021” award at the 12th Forum of Green Development and Low-carbon Life held on Jun. 11 in Beijing. Ling Xu, vice president and head of strategy department at JD.com, attended the forum and made a speech on JD’s thinking and actions for sustainable development.

“JD has incorporated green and low-carbon operations into its corporate development strategy,” said Xu. “By advocating responsible consumption, we collaborate with partners and consumers to promote sustainable development through transforming processes from designing, marketing, to circulation and services.”

As a supply chain-based technology and service provider, JD is contributing to China’s carbon neutrality goal and global climate action by building a cleaner supply chain system with a lower carbon footprint.

In 2019, JD.com’s logistics arm, JD Logistics, became the first Chinese logistics company to join the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), with a commitment to reducing its carbon emissions by 50% between 2019 and 2030. In May, JD.com announced plans to cut carbon emissions by 5% during this year’s 618 Grand Promotion comparing with the same period last year.

Co-organized by China News Service, the National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment and city of Beijing, the 12th Forum of Green Development and Low-carbon Life attracted nearly a hundred experts and scholars.
