At the Better World Summit (BWS) hosted by Huawei in partnership with Informa Tech, Bob Cai, Chief Marketing Officer of Huawei’s Carrier Business Group, delivered the opening speech titled “Green ICT for Green Development”
“As a leading global provider of ICT infrastructure and smart devices, Huawei incorporates green development into everything we do. We see this as part of our social responsibilities. In addition, Huawei is ready to become the best partner for operators in their efforts toward carbon neutrality,” said Cai. “With our innovative products and solutions, we will help operators cut carbon emissions and make their networks more energy efficient. We also want to work with operators and use ICT to better enable other industries to cut carbon emissions and become carbon neutral faster”
In June 2021, Huawei and Informa Tech jointly proposed the Network Carbon Intensity (NCI) initiative in which carbon emissions per bit of data is defined as a new metric for green networks.
Huawei emphasized that people’s pursuit of better lives must be balanced with the need for lower carbon emissions, so the company proposed this initiative to better manage and measure carbon reduction.
“We believe BWS in Dubai is a good beginning. Looking ahead, we will continue toto work with our industry partners and operators to empower green development of all industries using our innovative technologies,” said Cai at the end of his speech.
“As we envision in the theme of our flagship exhibition hall in Dubai, ‘Lighting up the Future’, we believe that together, we will light up a greener future.”
