Huawei: The goal of technology is to benefit all humans

The forum was attended by Spanish Minister of Industry, Trade, and Tourism Maria Reyes Maroto, Portuguese Miniter of Infrastructure and Housing Pedro Nuno Santos, Hungarian Minister of Innovation and Technology Laszlo Palkovics, Malaysian Minister of Communications and Multimedia Dato' Saiffuddin bin Abdullah, and the Thai Secretary-General of the National Digital Economy and Society Commission Vunnaporn Devahastin.

Huawei believes that the ultimate goal of technology is to benefit all humans and that digital technology can facilitate UN SDGs. The company called on enterprises to take firm action to use technology to create more value for the world as a whole.

In 2020, Huawei recycled over 4,500 tons of electronic waste through multiple initiatives including a reduction in plastics in its phone packaging. A reduction of 148 million tons of CO2 emissions was achieved through the deployment of the company's FusionSolar solution in more than 60 countries and regions.

Huawei also helped build the world's largest agricultural PV power plant and fishery PV power plant in Ningxia and Shandong, respectively, both of which have contributed significantly to local environmental protection efforts.

Huawei also believes that the UN Sustainable Development Goals can be achieved by focusing on two main goals. First, the industry must reach an agreement that technology is a crucial part of human progress in order to battle the negative views on the role of technology in human society.

The second goal is to make technology truly effective and create value for everyone. The company believes that by focusing on the limited common understanding we have right now and by keeping in mind what resources are actually available, we can drive progress step by step.
