Type of certification

Organisation.

How long have you been certified carbon neutral?

Since June 2021.

Why did you choose to go carbon neutral?

We have only one Earth that we call home. It is our common aspiration to pursue green development and make the world more beautiful and liveable.

What are the anticipated benefits of your carbon neutral certification?

Staff engagement. 

What offset project do you support?

A biomass power generation project in Liucheng.

Why did you choose this project?

This project effectively utilises biomass residue resources to promote a circular economy and protect the environment, as well as to increase local power supply and reduce emissions of air pollutants such as carbon dioxide. 

How can customers support you?

We explored more dimensions of green finance, and systematically implemented the development plan for green finance. Our business and services, including credit extension, bond issuance and underwriting, were greener and we promoted low-carbon operation in corporate management. We drove the integrated development of inclusive finance and green finance, and allowed FinTech to play a bigger role in the innovation and development of green finance.

What else are you doing to reduce emissions?

CCBS has stopped purchasing bottled water and paper cups. We encourage staff to use reusable containers for lunch and bring their own cutlery; reduce the use of kitchen towels and tissues; and avoid paper waste. When purchasing new electrical appliances, while considering price factors, try to choose power- saving products.

What advice would you give to a business considering certification?

Let’s start the low-carbon environmental protection model together to protect our Mother Earth.
