Ms. Liu Meng, head of the UNGC Asia Pacific Networks, presided over the event.

In his speech, Mr. Chatterjee affirmed the vital role of enterprises in easing the global crises, noting that the efforts and leadership of enterprises could improve the world. In order to realize the social and economic changes urgently needed by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement, all enterprises must come together to propose and make deeper and faster responses in their respective fields. "Only through global cooperation can we recover from the pandemic, embark on the path of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and mitigate the negative impacts of climate change."
Eric Yu spoke at the event
Mr. Yu delved into the Corporate Net Zero Pathway report released by the UNGC and shared the company's practical exploration in the field during the event. According to Mr. Yu, enterprises including China Translation Corporation ("CTC"), a long-term language service provider for the U.N. in China, and GTCOM, a big-data and artificial intelligence enterprise under the CTC, need to share their own practical measures for reducing carbon emissions to help attain the common goal of peaking carbon emissions and achieving carbon neutrality at national and global levels. For the purpose of fulfilling its corporate social responsibility, the CTC has built a language communication bridge for the U.N. system and providing global enterprise users with a full range of leading big-data and scenario-based AI application solutions.
Mr. Yu stated that big data and artificial intelligence will be used in many scenarios such as industry chain optimization and carbon emission detection in order to better achieve the goals of 2030 and 2060. The development of digital economy is inseparable from global cooperation and the circulation and sharing of data resources. In the face of massive cross-language and multi-modal data, GTCOM continuously invested in the research and development of big-data and knowledge-graphing technologies, serving financial quantification and supervision, scientific research data analysis, smart city and many other scenarios. He added that GTCOM will reduce carbon emissions in its business and systems based on its digital capabilities while empowering external scenarios through measures such as optimized industry chain structure, the development of evaluative green indexes, and the facilitation of new carbon-emission trading markets in order to create a unique, carbon-neutral development model.
