【Top 10 International Events】No.08 Chinese enterprises in South Africa sign to boycott ivory and rhinoceros horn trade


Since 2006, China WTO Tribune has set up an annual column of the top 10 domestic and international CSR events in the past year. In order to ensure comprehensive samples with more precise event description, and open and transparent selection process, we made daily collection and classification, and a consultation of a selected numbers of CSR experts from government, enterprises, universities and research institutions was conducted to further ensure the professionalism and authority of this list.
No.08 Chinese enterprises in South Africa sign to boycott ivory and rhinoceros horn trade
On September 23, a day before the opening of COP 17 of the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), 20 Chinese enterprises in South Africa signed to boycott ivory and rhinoceros horn trade in Johannesburg. The commitment was initiated jointly by China Construction Bank (Johannesburg branch), South Africa Rand Bank of Commerce, China House and Humane Society International (HIS).  
Reason for listing:
Ivory and rhinoceros horn trade seems to be one issue to blame Chinese enterprises in South Africa for caring less about natural environment in business. It is true that China offers a big market for ivory smuggling, but China can also provide solutions to it. The commitment not only conveys Chinese enterprises’ passions for wildlife protection, but also shows their efforts to shoulder social responsibilities when going globally.
