From the autumn of 2007 to the beginning of 2008, Prof. JIN involved in a research project on sustainable development jointly initiated and carried out by BT and Cisco, and on January 15, 2008 they issued a White Paper entitled “A New Mindset for Corporate Sustainability”.
“A report that is the result of the efforts of 6 leading academic experts from 5 countries in Asia, Europe and North America has taken several months to be completed. The experts from the 5 countries have never talked with each other face-to-face throughout the development process of the report, but nevertheless each of them has a group photo of them…
This is the unusual report jointly sponsored by BT and Cisco Systems. The focus of the report, entitled “A New Mindset for Corporate Sustainability”, is not on the business areas of the two companies — telecommunications technologies, products or services, but on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), which is receiving increasing attention both at home and abroad, especially in the environmental protection area.
The extensive and intensive manpower and material input in the production of this report indicates that CSR is gradually becoming a major concern of companies. And the unique technology used to produce the report means that reasonably using modern communications technology can provide huge benefits in savings to companies or even the whole society.
