(Yicai Global) Sept. 9 -- Yicai Media Group, a leading business media company in China, has partnered with an initiative of the United Nations to promote two accelerator programs for the first time in China to achieve climate and gender equality goals.

Yicai will promote the Climate Ambition Accelerator and the Target Gender Equality Accelerator through multiple media channels to facilitate the exchange of experiences between companies and to raise public awareness of the UN Global Compact and the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, Yicai Global learned. Yicai Global is part of Shanghai-based Yicai.

The two accelerator programs provide Chinese companies with a platform to learn about how to reduce their emissions and move toward more gender-equal working environments. Moreover, they can practice the tools and skills, as well as communicate their progress. 

So far around 40 companies from the fields of new energy, electronics, communications, food, cosmetics, technology services, education, and human resources have signed up for the two programs.

Liu Meng, general representative of the initiative in the Asia Pacific, visited Yicai in August and said that the partnership aims to provide Chinese companies with more practical services and a platform for experience-sharing and communication. Consequently, it supports them in making action plans in line with the 2030 SDGs, Liu added.

Yicai fully recognizes the SDGs advocated by the UN Global Compact, said Chen Sijie, general manager of the media company. The cooperation this year will serve as a starting point for the two parties to promote social impact brought by the accelerator programs to achieve these sustainability goals, he added.
