Shanghai, China (December 16, 2016) – Emerson (NYSE: EMR) has received the “2016 Corporate Social Responsibility Ranking in China: CSR Innovation Award,” presented by China Business Network (CBN), China’s leading business magazine publisher. CBN recognized Emerson for carrying out social responsibilities via innovative practice and boosting sustainable development of China’s economy and society, while maintaining excellent business performance.
Emerson is dedicated to improving energy usage efficiency through innovative technologies and promoting cleaner production methods. In April 2016, Emerson initiated the Helix plan, investing 35 million dollars to establish the first Helix Innovation Center. The center focuses on promoting research and development of the global HVACR industry. Emerson’s complete new series of compressor and controller products and the refrigerating fluid it adopts can decrease the global warning effects caused by existing products by 50 percent and more.
Based on its “In China, For China” strategy, Emerson established the China Charitable Program in 2009, to improve the quality of people’s lives. The program is planned and directed by Emerson China, and each business unit actively participates in the program. By leveraging the company’s business specialties, Emerson focuses on two major fields: technological engineering and construction of infrastructure facilities; and education, healthcare and humanitarian assistance.
Over the past eight years, the Emerson China Charitable Program has funded successful projects, including replacing dilapidated houses in Ruyuan Guangdong, Angel Sunshine Action (donate and visit children with congenital heart disease), New Great Wall Program (providing financial assistance for students from underprivileged families to attend university) and Mother’s Water Cellar project (bringing clean water and other assistance to remote rural villages).
“Emerson has been rigorously inspecting our business operations in order to make them more efficient and environment-friendly,” said Jennie Li, General Manager of Emerson China, when accepting the award at the ceremony. “We conduct our work to the highest standard of integrity and sense of responsibility. We offer equal opportunities and the greatest sense of security to all employees. We are dedicated to making positive impacts on local communities, so that our employees, their families and the whole society can benefit from it.”
By working on various fields including environment management, integrity and ethics, corporate management, staff and working environment, supply chain and social participation, the company encourages its employee volunteers to actively participate in charitable affairs. In the future, Emerson will keep its commitment of corporate social responsibility, and continue to explore innovative practices through working with various partners.
