DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, December 5, 2023 – LONGi Green Energy Technology Co., Ltd. (LONGi), a global leader in solar technology, today announced its new “Zero-Carbon Life Plan for Pandas” aimed at preserving biodiversity in China’s Qinglin Mountains. The plan includes a new partnership agreement with Shaanxi Foping National Nature Reserve and will focus on supporting panda conservation efforts at the reserve.

“As a leader in sustainable development through clean energy, LONGi is committed to exploring innovative ways we can use our technology to support environmental protection,” said Li Zhenguo, Founder and President of LONGi. “This special initiative is a great example of how LONGi is collaborating with new partners to realize our vision of a zero-carbon world while also supporting conservation efforts for one of China’s national treasures: the panda.”

As a part of the agreement, LONGi will donate solar power plant with its latest module product of Hi-MO X6 for the nature reserve’s facilities to provide clean energy for scientists and researchers in support of their important conservation efforts. The “Panda Power Plant” will harness the sun's energy to contribute to sustainable energy generation for the Foping National Nature Reserve. LONGi will also adopt its own “HiMO Panda” to show how scientists and researchers are leveraging solar power to care for the panda over the course of its life. 

“We are incredibly grateful to have a new partnership with LONGi to begin transforming our national nature reserve to become carbon neutral,” said Dang Gaodi, Senior Engineer at Shaanxi Foping National Nature Reserve. “This is a great example of how NGOs and the Private Sector can come together to leverage different strengths to achieve a common goal.”

The “Zero-Carbon Life Plan for Pandas” also aligns with other global efforts to promote sustainable development. In particular, the “Zero-Carbon Life Plan” was created with the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals in mind, specifically the goal 15 “Life on Land,” which aims to protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss.

“LONGi is committed to being a leader not only in the clean energy space but also in promoting environmental protection,” said Jiang Dongyu, Vice President of Distributed Business Group of LONGi. “We hope that through investments like the one we are making with the Shaanxi Foping National Nature Reserve, we can open the door to more possible partnerships with NGOs and researchers to show how solar technology can support biodiversity conservation around the world.”
