Huawei recently released its 2016 Sustainability Report entitled "Connecting the Future". The report introduces Huawei's achievements in sustainable development, strategy implementation, and practices in 2016. This is the ninth year Huawei has voluntarily released a sustainability report.

At the World Economic Forum in January 2017, Huawei signed The Compact for Responsive and Responsible Leadership as part of its commitment to sustainable growth and corporate social responsibility. "We will ensure that our company's strategic goals are aligned with the long-term goals of society as a whole," said Madam Sun Yafang, Chairwoman of Huawei. "We are committed to sustainable value creation, and will not sacrifice long-term economic prosperity and social welfare for our own short-term interests."

As Huawei aims to build a sustainable, better connected world, the company remains committed to the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Madam Sun remarked, "Huawei continues to maintain strategic focus, patiently applying ourselves to breakthroughs in key domains. It is our responsibility to support the UN in its pursuit of the Sustainable Development Goals, and it's one that we take seriously. Through open collaboration with our partners, we aim to connect all people and all things, and build a sustainable, better connected world together."

In 2016, Huawei worked relentlessly to implement its sustainability strategy: Bridging the Digital Divide, Supporting Network Stability and Security, Promoting Environmental Protection, and Building a Healthy Industry Ecosystem. Through a series of objectives and initiatives, the company contributed to progress in the economy, the environment, and society.

Kevin Tao, Chairman of Huawei's Corporate Sustainable Development Committee, explained Huawei's future sustainability priorities and direction. He noted, "We will focus on innovation in sustainable development and also on risk control, aiming to build competitiveness in

sustainability. We will integrate sustainability further into our business operations to create greater value for business. In external communications, we will remain fact-based and objective as we seek to earn the trust of our stakeholders. Our goal is to build a robust ecosystem for Huawei to sustain its long-term development."
