SHANGHAI, Nov. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- AiHuiShou International Co. Ltd. ("ATRenew" or the "Company") (NYSE: RERE), a leading technology-driven pre-owned consumer electronics transactions and services platform in China, shared its thoughts on promoting the circular economy at a forum hosted by Deloitte at the fourth China International Import Expo on November 6.
During the fourth China International Import Expo, Deloitte hosted a forum named "China's turning point: How climate action can drive our economic future". Mr. Kerry Xuefeng Chen, Founder, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer of ATRenew, delivered a keynote speech via video conference. In his speech, he shared the Company's experiences in promoting the circulation of pre-owned consumer electronic products and its ESG practices. Ms. Vivian Jiang, Deloitte China Deputy CEO and Deloitte China Chief Sustainability Officer, also showed the economic costs of doing nothing and significant benefits of actively acting on climate change for China. Mr. Allan Xie, Deloitte China Climate and Sustainability Leading Partner, addressed that every enterprise should take action to speed up decarbonisation process and Deloitte would like to help our clients shape responsible and resilient businesses in an increasingly unpredictable world. Ms. Helen Xu, Deloitte China Climate and Sustainability Associate Director, introduced Deloitte five main integrated offerings about Climate & Decarbonisation, Circular Economy, Sustainable Supply Chain and ESG reporting.
At the macro level, China promulgates multiple policies for the realization of its "dual-carbon" targets and the development of circular-economy industries. In addition, it promotes green, low-carbon, circular, and sustainable production and consumption. ATRenew extends consumer electronics products' life cycles, thereby mitigating the waste of resources and environmental pollution caused by improper disposal. Furthermore, ATRenew has improved its supply chain capabilities and increased the standardization and scale of the second-hand electronics industry. Upstream of the supply chain, these measures mean that the Company can ensure the privacy of users through its technology capabilities to erase their data on the equipment that is to be recycled. ATRenew also actively promotes green growth and sustainable development in the industry by setting ESG selection criteria for its downstream suppliers.
Kerry also commented: "Upholding the 'mission to give a second life to all idle goods', we remain committed to our vision of 'transforming pre-owned consumer electronics transactions and services globally' while supporting and promoting the development of China's circular economy. Meanwhile, ATRenew will create a sustainable future by actively engaging with all stakeholders, including government departments, companies and institutions with outstanding ESG practices at home and abroad, world-class sustainability consultancies and rating agencies, third-party partners, and upstream and downstream participants in the supply chain."
