BYD is partnering the Shenzhen Bus Group (SZBG) at a special Green Transport Partnership media event.
BYD Strives to Make Zero-emissions Goal a Reality
The event was held at SZBG’s state-of-the-art Lotus Hill Depot in Shenzhen’s Futian District. It has been arranged to kick-off both companies’ commitment to the Race to Zero campaign, an initiative forming a central theme in the run-up to next year’s COP26 – the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow in November, 2021. The Race to Zero is a global collaboration for businesses, cities and other stakeholders to join forces in their quest to reduce carbon emissions.
Today’s event includes guest of honour from the UK Government, Her Majesty’s Ambassador to China, Caroline Wilson CMG. The UK is spearheading a Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) initiative, one of five campaign themes tackling climate change under the UK’s presidency of COP26.
Also attending the media event is BYD Europe’s Managing Director, Isbrand Ho. All participants pledged their firm support for the Race to Zero initiative, with Isbrand Ho describing BYD’s industry-leading New Energy Vehicle credentials on the global eMobility stage.
During his presentation, Isbrand Ho said, “Alongside our UK-China Green Transport Partnership colleagues, we stand ready and committed to reducing the impact of transport on our environment. In fact, we have continuously honoured this commitment for 25 years. We are proud of our tireless work in developing new technologies, and to make our zero-emissions goal a reality.”
