Over nine continuous years, the selection activities have been held to identify and promote meaningful SDG-focused practices by China-based member companies of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) and encourage experience sharing among peers.
JD.com was listed under the special contribution to the “carbon peak and carbon neutrality” category of the selection, in recognition of its low-carbon productivity enabled by green infrastructure and technological innovation ranging from warehousing, packaging, transportation to algorithm, such as its photovoltaic powered logistic parks, ultra-low 1.1 PUE (power usage effectiveness) data centers, more than 20,000 new energy delivery vehicles across the country, and more.
Recently, JD’s Asia No.1 Logistics Industrial Park in Xi’an was certified carbon neutral by China Beijing Environment Exchange and Centre Testing International Group. The park also marks the establishment of China’s first carbon-neutral logistics park.
