Hisense’s Value-Based Innovation Becomes the Pivotal Driving Force to Achieve Brand Growth

Published

on

QINGDAO, China, Nov. 21, 2022 /CNW/ — Securing growth amid global upheavals has become a major undertaking among companies today. In recent years, Hisense, a globally-recognized appliance and electronics manufacturer, has grown into a leading force in the market, becoming the prioritized option for millions of customers. To uncover Hisense’s substantial growth, a partnered feature from the Financial Times on Nov. 21st runs through the brand’s endeavors in notching all-around achievements and more specifically, its innovation strategy which serves as a decisive factor in the overall brand growth.

 

Empowering Growth with Value-Based Innovation

In times of uncertainty, it’s tempting for companies to adopt a relatively conservative developmental scheme. For Hisense, however, it’s precisely its dynamic innovation strategy that enables continued brand growth.

Currently, Hisense has opened 23 R&D centers and 31 production bases around the world, consistently transforming the customer experience by launching the latest solutions. These visionary moves from Hisense enable it to expand its global reach in a challenging time. From January to October, the global shipments of Hisense TV reached 19.6 million with a year-on-year growth rate of 18%, positioning Hisense the 2nd in the global market, as reported by AVC Revo.

“Independent innovation, leadership and iterative transformation are among Hisense’s most important success factors,” said Catherine Fang, Executive Vice President of Hisense International. “For Hisense, innovation is both a proposition and an answer.”

Apart from the success in internationalization, the Financial Times partnered article also applauds Hisense’s efforts to incorporate innovation with its ESG commitments. For instance, Hisense has adopted photovoltaic power generation which will benefit its emission-reduction goals. Additionally, Hisense managed to reduce the thickness of its TV sets’ back covers, which can save 4,626 tons of plastic each year, an amount equivalent to 514 million plastic bags. In terms of energy saving and carbon reduction, Hisense Group reduced its energy consumption by 10.7% in 2021 alone.

“Over the past decade, the emphasis on ESG encourages companies to stop focusing solely on profitability and consider the environmental and social impact of their business practices,” said Fang. Hisense’s vigorous efforts in its ESG practices both facilitate the building of an organic innovation strategy and advance Hisense’s sustainability agenda.

Additionally, another backbone of Hisense value-based innovation is also unveiled in the article: its vision to shoulder social responsibilities and cater to the needs of diverse consumer groups. Hisense South Africa, for instance, has successfully boosted local job growth and employment rates. Hisense has also solidified communication with global customers by sponsoring top sporting events. In 2022, it became the Official Sponsor of FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™.

Looking forward to the future, Hisense is on its way to becoming a world-class multinational corporation. Powered by value-based innovation, Hisense will adhere to its long-term agendas and strategic goals, continuing to thrive in technology, R&D, supply chain, brand value, and talent.

Jackery At Ten: A Decade of Solar Generator Innovation

Published

on

By

FREMONT, Calif., Dec. 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Jackery, a pioneer and global leader of innovative portable power and green outdoor energy solutions, shares a look back at how its innovative and reliable solutions change the way people access green electricity and how clean energy has been seamlessly integrated into every facet of users’ lives, from outdoor recreation, education, healthcare, and disaster rescue.

“Over the past decade, Jackery has built a wide range of flagship line-ups and sold millions of units worldwide, accompanying users across the globe to explore the world. We are extremely proud of our achievements which are the result of the dedication and hardworking of our teams as well as the support of our global customers, who have also inspired and motivated us with their unique stories. We are fortunate to have them on our side as we power up a future of green living,” said Head of Brand Department.

Power up the Nature

Designed for flexibility, portability, and sustainability, Jackery’s products are created for green off-the-grid living. For years, Jackery equips its products with the latest innovations and state-of-the-art features to cover the needs of van-lifers and outdoor enthusiasts, coupled with a weather-proof design, fast-charging, and large capacity to keep them connected and plugged in while on the go.

Extending the brand’s mission to empower global actions to protect the environment and reduce carbon emissions, Jackery participated in a campaign in 2021 through which the company provided solar generators for forest rangers to facilitate their effort to safeguard the natural environment while bringing public attention to those frontline workers who dedicate their lives to guarantee the integrity of eco-system. This year, Jackery has also teamed up with National Forest Foundation, vowing to plant 10,000 trees in the flight against climate change.

Power Up the Dream

The exploratory spirit is deeply rooted in Jackery’s brand DNA, and with which, the company pioneers green solutions and bring them to the people in need, allowing users to enjoy the benefits of renewable energy. Last year, Jackery partnered with the van-lifer family @Amunches to embark upon a journey into a sweeping desert in Colombia’s La Guajira peninsula and came to a school of an impoverished community where access to electricity is a luxury.

Using Jackery’s solar generator to power up a project, the Amunches family shared with the local students about their adventures across the Americas in the hope of fostering their dreams. The children’s eyes lit up in awe and excitement, with huge smiles appear on their faces the moment the projector was switched on. They listened with curiosity and rapt attention and stared at the colorful screen that transported them to different worlds filled with wonders and possibilities, as well as inspirations to bring changes to their homeland.

Power Up the Hope

A former gymnast who was the winner of the All-Japan Rhythmic Gymnastics Championships, Mr. Eiji Setoda started to perform acrobatics to help heal the national wound caused by the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake. After the COVID-19 pandemic plunged Japan into another period of uncertainty that depressed the entire country, he started a tour across the country as a street performer, taking Jackery’s solar generator with him to power his performance as he tried to bring hope to a wider population in this difficult time.

Inspired by Mr. Setoda, Jackery Japan has launched a series of initiatives and joined hands with local partners to strengthen Japan’s emergency response mechanism. In 2020, the company donated 10 solar generators to bolster local disaster prevention measures through the “JackeryCare” initiative. The following year saw Jackery tie up with JVC Kenwood to develop solar generator products that address the challenges in disaster rescue missions. In 2022, Jackery joined the Social Emergency Management Alliance (SEMA), pledging to provide portable power solutions in case of unexpected disasters.

“This 10-year journey brings us to a new starting point from which we will continue to spearhead green technology to bring more innovative products to our global customers. We will stay true to our goal of making renewable energy accessible for all, facilitating the global clean energy transition by reducing people’s reliance on fossil fuels,” said Head of Manufacture Department of Jackery.

About Jackery

Jackery, the world’s leading innovative portable power and green outdoor energy solution provider founded in California in 2012, is a global top-selling solar generator brand recognized by over 150 authorized media and organizations worldwide. Since 2018, Jackery has sold more than 2 million units globally and a footprint spanning from the US to Europe, Japan and China.
