Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2012

SGCC released its CSR Report 2012 on February 21, 2013. It is the 8th consecutive year for SGCC as the first central SOE to release an annual CSR report. The report, for the first time, covers the implementation cases of its provincial companies and illustrates the management practices with specific case studies.

SASAC Director Peng Huagang and SGCC EVP Cao Zhi¡¯an attended the meeting and delivered a speech. EVP and Chairman of the Labor Union Wang Min presided the meeting while the Department of Public Relations released the report.

Mr. Peng Huagang spoke highly of SGCC¡¯s work regarding its corporate social responsibility. He said that SGCC had become a role model for its CSR work among central SOEs and that the company should be an example and leader to improve the CSR management, implement the strategy of harmonious development, innovate in social communication methods, and enhance the work on social responsibilities.

Mr. Cao Zhi¡¯an mentioned in his speech that it has been an unwavering choice for SGCC to implement its social responsibilities. The company serves the country, its clients, and power generation companies and looks at the big picture for the socio-economic development. Its pursuit of the maximum integrated economic, social and environmental value has become a path of CSR for state-owned enterprises with Chinese characteristics. He said there was no end to the corporate responsibility. SGCC will thoroughly implement the spirit The 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China and fulfill its CSR on a higher ground. The Party aims to build an all-round well-off society by 2020, or the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the Party, and makes China a modern socialist country that is prosperous, strong, democratic, culturally advanced and harmonious when the People¡¯s Republic marks its centennial. It sets new, higher goals for SGCC¡¯s implementation of its CSR in pushing for new industrialization, informatization, urbanization and agricultural modernization with Chinese characteristics. In SGCC¡¯s Two Sessions 2013, it has been made clear to build a modernized company with ¡°A Strong Grid, Excellent Assets, Services and Performance¡±. This strategy is our action to serve for the building of a well-off society. It also becomes the most important social responsibility in the days to come. The key for CSR fulfillment is to implement. We need to focus on the grassroots level and make actual changes with unremitting efforts.

The 70,000-odd-word report reveals the company¡¯s annual aspiration, action and performance in fulfilling its social responsibility and its commitment for 2013. It showcases the company¡¯s comprehensive CSR management and its practices in penetrating the CSR management into every corner of the company. Compared with previous years, this report has a better content structure, a broader scope, a more thorough illustration on the aspiration, a more systematic performance communication and a wider exposure on responsibility commitment. Experts say it¡¯s the first time for a Chinese company to adopt the structure of ¡°aspiration, action, performance and commitment¡±, which reflects that Chinese enterprises no longer equal CSR with a simple summary of its fulfillment accomplishments, but attach a complete logic to disclose their CSR fulfillment. It is also the first time for Chinese enterprises to reveal their CSR management practice, which includes a 9-step implementation mechanism, a comprehensive CSR management mode with 21 factors, and its novel ¡°15333¡± project of CSR management.

Five pilot companies, Shandong Zaozhuang Power Supply Company, Fujian Zhangzhou Electric Bureau, Hubei Yichang Power Supply Company, Liaoning Chaoyang Power Supply Company and Shaanxi Shangluo Power Supply Bureau, delivered speeches to exchange their work on comprehensive CSR management.

Other attendants included experts and leaders from the State Electricity Regulatory Commission, the China Enterprise Confederation and the China Electricity Council, the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, China National Institute of Standardization, Peking University, Tsinghua University, the United Nations Global Compact, the WTO Tribune of the Ministry of Commerce, Beijing Rongzhi Corporate Social Responsibility Institute and other institutions. Reporters from the People's Daily, Xinhua News Agency, and CCTV attended the meeting.

More than 38,000 people in 1832 venues attended this videophone conference, including delegates from the Headquarters and Beijing subsidiaries at the main venue and participants from other branches, provincial companies, prefecture-level companies, municipality-level companies, county-level companies and subordinate units from sub-venues.
