Tencent showcased next-generation low-carbon technologies at the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference, known as COP27, in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt.

These include a zero-energy radiative cooling technology to protect glaciers, Asia's first carbon mineralization storage project, and water-saving and drought-resistant rice (WDR). 

Tencent officials also shared details about their ongoing projects to drive innovative solutions, guide the public to lead greener lifestyles, and support the transition to a low-carbon economy.

To support our society in realizing carbon neutrality, Tencent is continuously exploring new solutions in social innovation and researching cutting-edge low-carbon technologies.

Sharing its mission, delegates from Tencent discussed ways to achieve carbon neutrality with stakeholders and presented Tencent's latest progress and solutions towards this objective.

During a panel discussion on Wednesday, Xu Hao, Vice President of Tencent Sustainable Social Value (SSV) and Head of Tencent Carbon Neutral Lab, showcased the first carbon mineralization storage project in Asia, a collaboration between Tencent and Icelandic carbon sequestration company Carbfix.

The company said that it's also collaborating with university research teams to develop zero-energy radiative cooling products, which allow the cooling of objects by radiating heat to outer space, to achieve both climate adaptation and carbon reduction.

This technology can be used to protect glaciers and is being tested on the Dagu Glacier in Sichuan Province.
