by Yuchuan Wang

JD.com published its Sustainability Report on Jun. 18 which disclosed the company’s efforts and achievements in the field from 2018 to 2020.

As a company with the mission “Powered by Technology for A More Productive and Sustainable World”, JD.com is committed in leveraging its smart supply chain to continuously create value for economy and social development, and environmental protection.

JD has been making efforts in promoting green logistics, procurement, offices and more to lead a low-carbon operation enterprise. The company’s self-built data center in Suqian, Jiangsu province has been recognized by the country as one of the “2020 National Green Data Centers” by departments including the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the National Development and Reform Commission and Ministry of Commerce.

JD also innovates in transportation, storage, and packaging among many others of the supply chain to make its logistics fulfillment green. The company has been gradually replacing traditional fuel-combustion trucks with new energy vehicles since 2017 and reduces at least 120,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year.

As said by Richard Liu, Chairman and CEO of JD.com, in a letter to shareholders on Jun. 18, “A company which stays in awe and stays enthusiastic should not pursue omnipotence in its industry. Instead, such a company should assume responsibility and create value for its users, partners, society, environment, communities and employees.”
