LONGi champions green cooperation in Aus-China Talks


LONGi, a leading solar technology company, took centre stage at the China-Australia Entrepreneurs Dialogue during the Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) 2024 Annual Conference on March 28.

The dialogue focused on the pressing need for low-carbon transformation, with both China and Australia setting ambitious emission reduction targets.

Zhong Baoshen, Chairman of LONGi, attended as a guest and highlighted the company’s presence in Australia’s growing photovoltaic (PV) market.

Since entering the country in 2017, LONGi has established a local team to serve various sectors, including residential, industrial, commercial, and large-scale solar farms. This approach supports Australia’s transition to cleaner energy by reducing reliance on fossil fuels and cutting greenhouse gas emissions.

Emphasising the importance of practical cooperation, Zhong discussed LONGi’s efforts to strengthen the global supply chain. The company has established production facilities in Vietnam and Malaysia to ensure efficient shipment capabilities. Investments in logistics and warehousing infrastructure are also helping to speed up Australia’s energy transition.

With China aiming for its 3060 (China proposed its new objective to peak CO2 emission before 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060) goal and Australia committed to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050, Zhong expressed optimism about the significant potential for joint efforts in green development between the two countries.

He called for unity and collaboration amid global uncertainties, stressing the need for an open and inclusive approach to common development.

Advocating for international cooperation, Zhong proposed increased investment to facilitate smoother business collaborations and joint efforts to accelerate the adoption and commercialisation of clean energy technologies. This, he believes, will lead to sustainable energy development and low-carbon economic transformation.

Zhong envisioned platforms like the China-Australia Entrepreneurs Dialogue as opportunities for bilateral exchanges, fostering a fair and transparent business environment. Addressing global issues like climate change and carbon neutrality, he advocated for an open dialogue and collaborative approach to address these challenges.
