ZTE Corporation, one of China's leading telecom equipment vendors, recently organized a Corporate Social Responsibility conference in Sanya, Hainan province.
The conference, with the theme "Teaming up for Excellence and Working together to Create a CSR Supply Chain," was attended by representatives from key suppliers, customers, and leading international testing organizations, who gathered to share their experiences and discuss collective solutions on CSR and sustainability.
According to Ye Weimin, the senior vice president of ZTE, CSR is the responsibility of the entire supply chain and requires the involvement and participation of all the links in the chain. A company does not exist purely to create profits and reward its shareholders, but also needs to protect its employees and the environment.
ZTE's overseas partners British Telecom and France Telecom also shared their experiences in implementing CSR programs and in participating in global sustainability initiatives, as well as talking about their specific CSR requirements from their own suppliers.
