Representatives of non-ferrous metals enterprises gathered in Qinghai to discuss green development
"In the foreseeable future, there is still much room for the need for non-ferrous metals in human society. As long as we strive to conform to the trend of environmental protection, we will be able to throw off the hat of "two high and one capital" and let the non-ferrous metal industry and many other industries embark on the track of ecological environmental protection and green development together." Chen Quanxun, president of China Nonferrous Metals Industry Association and Secretary of the Party Committee, said in Xining, Qinghai Province, on the 2nd.

As an enterprise, it needs to take the initiative to assume social responsibility, base itself on the local natural attributes, and constantly promote the construction of ecological civilization." Zhang Yongli, secretary and chairman of the Party Committee of the Western Mining Group Corporation, said that since 2015, the western mining industry has invested more than 800 million yuan to implement a series of safety and environmental protection projects. In 2018, the company launched a three-year plan for the construction of intelligent mines, green mines and garden-type factories. By the end of 2020, all indicators of mining and mineral processing will reach the advanced level in China, all of which will meet the provincial green mine standards. The greening coverage rate of factories will reach 100% of the greening area.

Chen Quanxun said that with the continuous improvement of material and cultural living standards, people's needs are constantly upgrading. To build a modern powerful country and a beautiful China, people have paid much more attention to not only the problem of "food, clothing and warmth", but also the pursuit of a good ecological environment, which has become the basic survival needs and choices of the most ordinary people. Therefore, for industrial enterprises, recognizing the ecological environment is the most inclusive livelihood well-being, that is, recognizing the fundamental responsibility of enterprises to workers and society.
