Huawei has released its "2020 Sustainability Report," highlighting the significant progress that it has made in its four strategies for sustainability – digital inclusion, security and trustworthiness, environmental protection, and a healthy and harmonious ecosystem.
Huawei has been using its innovative ICT solutions to provide people across different regions with equal access to quality education and healthcare resources.
In 2020, Huawei rolled out its "Skills on Wheels" and "Connecting Schools" programmes in over 200 schools around the world, benefiting more than 60,000 people.
The company also used ICT solutions to provide technical assistance to nearly 90 countries. It launched the RuralStar Pro solution, providing voice and mobile broadband services to more than 50 million people in sparsely populated remote villages.
Treating cybersecurity and privacy protection as another top priority, Huawei released the Software Process Trustworthiness Capability Framework and Assessment Criteria in 2020 to establish a complete set of trustworthy coding production mechanisms.
As of the end of 2020, Huawei had been granted 2,963 patents relating to cybersecurity and privacy protection around the world.
To promote renewable energy, Huawei has deployed its digital power solutions in more than 170 countries and regions, serving one-third of the world's population. To date, these solutions have generated 325 billion kWh of electricity from renewable sources and saved 10 billion kWh of electricity.
"An intelligent world should be a green world. Advances in technology can help us better understand and protect nature, mitigating the impact of human activity on the planet," said Liang Hua, chairman of Huawei, in the report.
