Safeguarding the Planet

Research shows that the wide application of ICT enables a variety of industries to significantly reduce their carbon footprint. By 2030, ICT will help industries reduce carbon emissions by 12 Gt, a figure almost 10 times higher than the total global carbon footprint of the ICT industry today.

Clearly, ICTs are playing an increasingly important role in tackling global environmental problems. In fact, its implementation not only promotes energy conservation and supports the reduction of emissions for industries, but also improves the efficiency of the use of renewable energy, working to mitigate the causes of climate change.

Huawei is committed to addressing global environmental problems through technological innovation, creating a greener future together with its partners, helping people to live in harmony with nature. With its declared vision of “Technology for a better planet”, Huawei has put its principles of environmental protection into practice, reducing its own carbon emissions, increasing the use of renewable energy and promoting the circular economy. As noted above, Huawei was named a List A company by CDP in 2020, for its actions to combat climate change; this denotes a level of leadership, above and beyond the regional and industry averages.

Huawei works hand in hand with customers to achieve these goals. Emaar Properties, the largest real estate developer in the Middle East, used Huawei’s all-optical campus solution to develop the 6-square-kilometer Dubai Creek port project. Huawei’s solution helped Emaar reduce equipment room space by 80%, reduce energy consumption by 30% (approximately 130,000 kWh of electricity each year) and reduce approximately 62 tons of carbon emissions, which which is equivalent to planting more than 2,700 trees (according to Huawei Financial Report 2020).

Singapore is one of the world’s key data centers, with a total data center capacity of close to 400 MW, the highest in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. In fact, Singapore’s data center power consumption is much higher than the world average, which is leading to linear growth in Singapore’s carbon footprint. Local player 1-Net is a data center operator that is fast becoming the preferred data center partner on the market. To match Singapore’s overall energy strategy, as well as meet its rapidly growing service requirements, 1-Net urgently needed to build a green data center to reduce its carbon footprint and improve data center operational efficiency – requirements that traditional data center power solutions couldn’t deliver. meet. 1-Net chose Huawei, a long-term reliable partner, for architectural research, requirements analysis and solution design. The supplied solution will help 1-Net save 11.2 million kWh of electricity, generating SGD 14.4 million (approximately US $ 10.87 million) of additional revenue, over a 10-year period. The flexible solution also reduces the initial investment required in terms of power supply and distribution by 40%. James Yeo, 1-Net data center facilities manager, said: “We look forward to working with Huawei to build smarter and greener data centers in the future, which will contribute to the digital economy and economic growth with low emissions of carbon in Singapore and the entire APAC region. ”
