On July 26, Chinese electronics firm vivo released its 2021 Sustainable Development Report, which focuses on four major aspects: the sharing of science and technology, green symbiosis, value creation and social benefit.
Vivo has always been insightful as to its consumer needs, focusing on the four technical dimensions of design, image, system and performance, building a global R&D network, and creating the ultimate experience for users with technological innovations such as independent imaging chips, a joint imaging system made by vivo and Zeiss, screen fingerprinting and a micro cloud platform.
Moreover, vivo dedicates itself to creating a fairer digital world through technological innovation, focusing on user-friendly product features, such as information accessibility, age-appropriate design and child modes, and helping every user embrace the digital world through continuous design and development and iteration of products and features such as vivo hearing, accessible calls, voice recognition, AI captioning, and more.
In terms of products, vivo integrates the concept of “low carbon recycling” into all aspects of the product life cycle, and consistently reduces the environmental impact of products and strengthens the use of resources by using green packaging, strictly controlling harmful substances, and establishing recycling and disposal mechanisms.
In terms of operation, vivo promotes green and low-carbon production and operation, energy saving and environmental protection, and reduces energy and resource consumption and pollution emission by upgrading processes and management optimization represented by self-built photovoltaic and strengthening water management.
In July 2022, vivo joined hands with the One Planet Foundation (OPF) for the launch of the “National Park Guardian Initiative,” which aims to help build national parks and protect biodiversity.
In addition, vivo actively participated in the formulation of standards in the fields of communication, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things (IoT) and other technical fields, with more than 400 projects.
