KUALA LUMPUR, May 24 (Bernama) -- Asian dairy giant Yili Group held its "ESG and Social Value Forum" in conjunction with the International Day for Biological Diversity on May 22, at the Yili Modern Intelligent Health Valley, which is widely known as the "Dairy Silicon Valley".
According to a statement, the company also officially released three new environmental, social and governance (ESG) reports namely the 2022 Sustainability Report, 2022 Annual Report on Biodiversity Conservation, and Net-Zero Carbon Future Report 2022.
Together with its global partners, Yili unveiled the WISH2030 Declaration for a Sustainable Future, calling for the entire industry to work together to create value and build a better future.
At the forum, Yili Group Chairman and President, Pan Gang underscored Yili's longstanding commitment to always adhere to the principles of altruism and ensure positive long-term development.
The company is dedicated to uniting diverse stakeholders to establish a "global health ecosystem" and enable the business community and wider society to enjoy mutual prosperity.
In 2007, Yili became the first private company in China to publish a corporate citizenship report, and the Group's concept of "green leadership" has received growing recognition globally ever since.
Meanwhile, in 2023, Yili released its 17th consecutive sustainability report and its latest report received a "five-star" rating from the Chinese Expert Committee on Corporate Social Responsibility Report Rating and has also been highly recognised by the United Nations.
Yili also upgraded its "WISH" system to the "WISH2030" Golden Key Sustainable Development System, prioritising four major areas namely "Comprehensive Value Management", "High-Quality Products and Services", "A Net-Zero Carbon Better Future", and "Shared Prosperity of a Better Life".
In celebration of the International Day for Biological Diversity, Yili once again joined forces with the World Wildlife Fund to launch the "Yili Homeland Initiative: Satine Empty Carton Recycling Plan" while also releasing a limited-edition packaging featuring unique animal species that inhabit grasslands and wetlands.
