Climate change threatens people with food and water scarcity, increased flooding, extreme heat, more disease, and economic loss. According to WHO, between 2030 and 2050, It is expected to cause approximately 250 000 additional deaths per year from malnutrition, malaria, diarrhea, and heat stress alone. The direct damage costs to health are estimated to be between US$ 2–4 billion per year by 2030. Areas with weak health infrastructure–mostly in developing countries–will be the least able to cope without assistance to prepare and respond.
Greenhouse gas emission is the main cause of climate change. TradeAider commits to reinforcing our controls on carbon footprint in all aspects of the trade, including office daily operation, order control, supply chain management, new product development, etc.
In daily office operation, TradeAider uses green appliances and requires power-saving while not working. We encourage employees to commute green and work paperless. TradeAider strongly condemns the waste of food and water.
In order control and supply chain management, TradeAider developed the Weguarantee app and apply the iControl order control system to bring many offline trading processes online, significantly reducing the in-process resource consumption. For example, we build a rotating 3D model for sample display to optimize the sample confirmation process. Manufacturers can upload the sample and modify parameters for an online visual check by buyers. It greatly reduces the unnecessary shipments and resources used between both parties.
TradeAider will insist on improving the efficiency of the industry and reducing carbon footprint as the target to develop new products. We know that continuing to do valuable things for society is the key to sustainable business development.
TradeAider is dedicated to growing a green business model for sustainable development. We care about climate change and limited resources on the earth. In TradeAider's business philosophy, we promote using renewable materials, developing circular production processes, and producing recycled products. TradeAiders is committed to building green supply chains that keep products in circulation and support material flows. We guide our clients and suppliers to use recyclable raw materials and products to maximize product value and resources.
In the supply chain management process, TradeAider often requires manufacturers to use more recyclable materials instead of non-renewable resources. We will also give priority to those environmentally qualified companies when recommending them to buyers.
When connecting with buyers, TradeAider also takes the initiative to recommend the products made with environmentally friendly materials and tell them what it means for environmental protection. TradeAider will keep working hard to use recycled resources to protect the environment and reduce our climate impact.
Chemicals are extensively used in the manufacturing industry. Standards for chemical control vary in different regions. The most common used regulations in foreign trade are the EU's REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals), the US’s TSCA (Toxic Substances Control Act) and China’s MEE (Ministry of Ecology and Environment) Order 12 - The Measures for the Environmental Administration Registration of New Chemical Substances.
TradeAider recognizes customers’ concerns around chemicals in the products and is taking steps to help inspect and control the chemicals to adhere to the laws and regulations. We have over 70,000 QC specialists on standby around manufacturers across China to provide all kinds of inspections during the entire production process. They can help audit the factories and products to ensure compliance with chemical controls. After that, TradeAider will issue a notarized audit report with authoritative credibility.
Meanwhile, TradeAider also carries out strict audit processes when selecting suppliers to ensure every factory listed on our manufacturing database is qualified. All the inspection results are transparent for customers to review and protected by blockchain technology.
TradeAider is committed to building a fair trade business system with clients and manufacturers, which helps companies achieve sustainable and equitable trade relationships. Justin Chen, the founder of TradeAider has repeatedly emphasized the importance of establishing an integrity system for a fair trade environment in public speeches.
On October 17, 2019, Justin Chen, the founder of TradeAider, was once again invited by the Canton Fair Conference Forum as a special guest on the platform of the Canton Fair (Central Stage) to deliver a keynote speech entitled "More than inspection — The importance of integrity services in international trade". Justin Chen said that "People can't stand without trust, and industry can't prosper without trust", which aroused strong resonance.
Justin Chen acts as he says. He is the honorary Chairman of the Beijing Infringement Counterfeiting and Inferior Goods Inspection & Identification Technology Innovation Alliance and the Executive Vice Chairman of CAASA ( China Anti-infringement and Anti-counterfeit Innovation Strategic Alliance).
On October 18, 2019, TradeAider, as an innovative Internet and third-party builder of the infrastructure of the global trade integrity system, and more than 600 world-renowned Internet enterprises and innovative enterprises, such as Alibaba, Huawei, Tencent, Baidu, WangYi, China Electronics Technology Group, Kaspersky Lab and SAP of Germany, jointly appeared at the 6th World Internet Conference "Light of the Internet" Expo.
At present, the global trade market situation is complex, and the construction of a trade integrity system is of great significance to fair trade. TradeAider will keep promoting the construction of a sustainable and high-quality business development model for global trade.
TradeAider strictly complies with the national Labor Laws and is committed to providing fair jobs and equal treatment for everyone. We respect human rights, promote inclusion and champion diversity throughout our operations, our supply chain and our sales networks.
In addition to strict compliance with local laws and regulations, TradeAider has introduced our internal Code of Conduct for employees and has established our values.
TradeAider's Code of Conduct and values dictate that:
We put employees in the first place. Employees are the most valuable asset of TradeAider.
We treat others with respect and comply with fair labor and employment practices.
We do not discriminate against anyone on the basis of race, age, gender, color, religion, etc.
We believe that honesty and respectfulness are the most basic etiquette for treating each other.
We advocate altruism and do more things that are valuable to society and others.
Adherence to business ethics is a fundamental pillar of our sustainable development and the key to success. Being ethical requires us to do the right thing, such as complying with laws and regulations wherever we operate, paying taxes accordingly, and firmly fighting against corruption.
Bribery and corruption are major obstacles to economic and social development. They increase the cost of business transactions and government services and lead to unfair competition. Principle 10 of the United Nations Global Compact states that "Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery."
TraderAider always advocates to make the trade process open and transparent. We developed a smart order control system called iControl to provide buyers with complete transparency and efficient monitoring of the entire production process. They can place orders with manufacturers directly. We use a flat fee for all clients and do not take advantage of the information gap to earn a price difference. In addition, we have applied blockchain technology to process information, which greatly avoids corruption in the middle of the trade.
