Nowadays, when the world advocates "green development" to achieve the goal of "carbon neutrality", as an automobile enterprise with multiple production processes and a long industrial chain, it needs to give priority to green development and low-carbon development. The case of "Building a Green Industrial Chain and Drawing a Blueprint of 'Made in China'" developed by Chery Group comprehensively demonstrates how to achieve the goal of green and low carbon in the whole life cycle and the whole industrial chain, thus facilitating Chery to realize the comprehensive improvement of social, environmental and economic benefits.

Especially in every major disaster, Chery's responsibility and practical actions can be seen - whether it comes to the typhoon in the Philippines in 2022, the floods in Peru in 2017, the great earthquake in Ecuador in 2016 or the great earthquake in Chile in 2012, Chery has donated disaster relief funds as well as supplies to the affected areas at the first time to solve the urgent needs with their care and love to help the victims tide over their difficulties.

Notably, Chery also achieved a wonderful performance of 451,000 units with an ultra-high growth rate of 67.7% of its overseas exports, which not only set a breakthrough for the export of Chinese passenger vehicles, but also made it the No. 1 exporter of Chinese passenger vehicles for 20 consecutive years. What's more, Chery achieved a monthly export sales of more than 50,000 units in 4 months of 2022.
