Autel cares for communities across the globe. Due to wide-reaching operations across the globe, corporate structure is decentralized to allow for a more local, community-driven approach to work. This includes setting up offices and factories in different locations, hiring local employees and those from underserved communities, and contributing to the local GDP. Some regional offices have their own green initiatives, such as encouraging employees to bike to work and reducing the use of single-use plastics in the office. Autel headquarters have installed more than 20 solar panels on the roof to reduce fossil-fuel consumption, and will install more for our other offices.
We will continue to invest in our regional presence to become closer with the communities we operate in.
At the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, Autel, together with its shareholders, donated the automated sample extraction system MGISP-100 and the supporting 2,000-person nucleic acid extraction kits and consumables to curb the spread of the pandemic started at the end of 2019.
Autel gives back to our communities by partnering with local non-profits. For example, our participation in the 2022 Detroit Auto Show was highlighted by our new partnership with the Greening of Detroit, a non-profit that helps plant trees around Detroit. Autel used its platform as a participant at the show to donate to the cause and to help build a green community. Up to date, Autel has planted 300 trees with Greening of Detroit.
