State Grid Corporation of China has successfully released a report on its contribution to the implementation of the Global Development Initiative during the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York. The landmark event marks the first GDI report by a Chinese enterprise on the UN platform.

This follows its publication of the first green and low-carbon development report by Chinese central State-owned enterprises at the 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference held in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt in November 2022.

The GDI puts forth China's solutions and wisdom to address global development challenges and jointly promote global development toward a new era of balance, coordination, and inclusiveness.

State Grid has proactively embraced the GDI and remained steadfast in aligning the goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with its pursuit of high-quality and sustainable economic and social progress.

It has explored a string of successful models and experiences in facilitating local development under different scenarios at home and abroad.

State Grid, in the report, offers solutions to address the pressing question of global sustainable development now and demonstrates its concept, wisdom and responsibility in this aspect.

Furthermore, it also highlights the responsibility borne by State Grid as an active participant, steadfast executor, and strong promoter of the GDI.

With a keen understanding of the GDI and its correlation with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, State Grid places a paramount emphasis on promoting common development.

Based on this principle, it has developed strategic insights and guiding principles to facilitate development cooperation in this new era.

Drawing upon its social function, positioning and development strategy, it effectively coordinates between the performance of its "three responsibilities" of politics, economy, and society and the promotion of the GDI.

With unrivaled power transmission capacity and the largest scale of new energy power grid connections in the world, State Grid has harnessed its network advantages and actively engaged in global development cooperation.

This has established a robust foundation for power technology and energy supply services, facilitating optimal energy supply and driving a transformation toward a green and low-carbon future within its service areas.

State Grid upholds the six principles put forth in the GDI, regarding them as fundamental guidelines for its operations.

It has systematically initiated key initiatives and projects for advancing the GDI and materialized its commitment from six aspects: staying committed to development as a priority, to a people-centered approach, to benefits for all, to innovation-driven development, to harmony between man and nature, and to result-oriented actions. Through these efforts, it has successfully attained anticipated outcomes.

State Grid endeavors to foster a wider consensus on sustainable development in the power and energy sectors.

By inspiring and engaging more partners, it actively encourages the pursuit of sustainable development, making new contributions to the achievement of the UN's SDGs on schedule and the building of a community with a shared future for humanity.

Tong Chong, a senior engineer from State Grid Suzhou Power Supply Co, interpreted the report at the event.

He also engaged in discussions with all participants and provided valuable insights and answers to the questions posed by media reporters from all over the world. The event garnered global attention and received accolades from international experts and scholars in the power and energy sectors, and the media.
