PVTIME – During the second Sina Finance 2022 ESG Global Leaders’ Summit, Cao Renxian, Sungrow’s Chairman and Founder, delivered a keynote speech at “How Scientific Innovation Drives Net-Zero Carbon Transition”, with the thesis “Enterprises Should be More Innovative in Carbon Reduction and Elimination”.
Cao Renxian emphasized enterprises are the primary force in innovating and leading the global clean power transition. Whether the high energy-consuming enterprises or the environmentally-friendly ones committed to technological innovations should take a more proactive role in the global decarbonization mission. Enterprises occupy the dominant position in innovation and they should invest more in it while concentrating on their main business.
