With ZPMC committed to accelerating sustainable development through technological innovation, the company is set on responding to climate challenges with green intelligent solutions and integrating green concepts into the whole life cycle of product development, in order to promote the green industry chain.

"ZPMC has always insisted on a sustainable development roadmap, and since the 3060 "dual carbon" goals were established, ZPMC has reduced carbon emissions by 25,000 tons and saved 1 million yuan (US$137,893) through the development of new energy products and clean energy sources, as well as transforming our corporate culture into a green, sustainable way of management, We have also committed to making solid contributions to addressing climate change challenges with concrete actions," said Liu Feng, vice president of ZPMC.

Eco-friendly solutions to build green ports

As a leading port machinery manufacturer, ZPMC has been building "intelligent zero-carbon" ports across the world, focusing on the deployment of intelligent, digital and lightweight new energy equipment products to promote green, low-carbon transportation.

ZPMC's new energy product development breakthroughs include its self-developed hybrid straddle carrier that has successfully upgraded from the hybrid power system of diesel and lithium batteries to the pure electric combination of hydrogen fuel cells and lithium batteries, with the zero-carbon product being the first of its kind that produces only water and heat throughout its circulation. It also developed the world's first hydrogen fuel cells tyred crane.

Accelerating wind power new energy initiatives

In the new energy sector, ZPMC has established an integrated solution of advanced construction equipment and technologies adapted to various geological and sea conditions.

It has constructed 78 megawatt distributed photovoltaic plants across China that have produced 130 million KWH of clean electricity since 2016, an initiative that is reducing coal use and a significant amount of CO2 and thiourea dioxide emissions.

A green corporate culture leads sustainable development

Furthermore, green sustainability as part of ZPMC's corporate governance has led to the full implementations of green development indicators from strategy development, planning and design, construction, procurement to compliance management, risk control and performance assessment. At the same time, ZPMC has created "green offices" to save electricity, water and paper.

"Every employee of ZPMC is contributing to the transformation of green manufacturing and sustainable development, in the context of increasingly serious global environmental and energy challenges, ZPMC is proud to be part of the green energy transformation and take actions to tackle the global climate emergency," said Yuan Feng, an electrical technician of ZPMC and expert of lithium battery and green energy development.
