Asia's Largest Dairy Producer Yili Announces World's First Annual Report on Biodiversity Protection - "Being 'First' Is Not Only Operation But Also Responsibility"
Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt, Nov. 22, 2018 /Xinhua-AsiaNet/--

The 14th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention on 
Biodiversity is being held in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt during November 14-29, 
2018. Representatives from over 190 contracting states of the Convention on 
Biodiversity are participating in the event and having in-depth discussions on 
policies on biodiversity integration of agriculture, forestry, fishery and 
tourism. 

Yili(the "Group"), the only Chinese enterprise signing the Commitment Letter of 
Enterprises and Biodiversity of the United Nations Convention on Biodiversity, 
was invited to the conference. Zhang Jianqiu, CEO of Yili Group, shared 
practices and experience in its protection of biodiversity with the guests and 
announced the "Annual Report on Biodiversity Protection of Yili Group", the 
first ever of its kind in the world. 

Business development is closely bound to responsibilities. As the leader of 
China's dairy production, the Group has witnessed steady growth in revenue and 
net profits over the years. As of the third quarter of 2018, the Group has rung 
up sales of RMB61.327 billion, representing a year-on-year increase of 16.88%, 
thereby proving themselves a leader in the industry. For the Group, being 
"first" means not only operations but also the assumption of social 
responsibilities. 

Zhang Jianqiu notes that, apart from development, Yili is going ahead with the 
idea of "Green Leadership" proposed by Group Chairman Pan Gang and is pushing 
forward with the strategy "Green Industrial China." It is on this basis that 
the "Chinese Sample" of biodiversity protection has been produced gradually, 
characterized by "Disclosure, Management and Popularity" over the years. The 
15th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention on Biodiversity 
will be held in China for the first time in 2020. Yili sincerely hopes that 
more and more Chinese enterprises will join hands with them to protect the 
biodiversity.
