Jiang Anqi, Vice Chairwoman of Tianqi Lithium, highlighted that addressing current climate change requires the development of new energy, which has become an essential path to solving global resource crises and climate change issues. Tianqi Lithium has systematically managed carbon at the operational and product levels, following the EU PEF standard's carbon neutrality approach, consisting of accounting, emission reduction, and disclosure. In exploring pollution and carbon reduction pathways, the company has undertaken initiatives such as energy substitution, energy and material conservation, and process innovation.

Tianqi Lithium implemented the "coal-to-gas" project, completely phasing out coal usage and adopting clean, low-carbon hydroelectric power at its Shehong production base. In wastewater treatment, all Tianqi Lithium production bases are equipped with wastewater treatment facilities. Through projects promoting comprehensive wastewater utilization, wastewater reuse technologies, and water-saving equipment, the company continually reduces water resource consumption. In 2022, Tianqi Lithium achieved a water recycling rate of up to 93% and obtained the first sustainable-linked loan bilateral certification in the lithium industry.

For 30 years, Tianqi Lithium has been deeply committed to the industry, adhering to the business philosophy that "economic interests should never override safety and environmental protection." Actively integrating pollution and carbon reduction into its operations, the company collaborates with stakeholders, taking continuous action to contribute to global climate and ecological governance.
