2018 marked the 10th birthday of Vipshop. Ten years ago, “a website specializing in flash sale” began its journey of entrepreneurship in Guangzhou, a time-honored city of commerce. Today, Vipshop cooperates with totally 20,000 brand partners worldwide and takes credit for the improved quality of life of its 330 million members. This achievement is a testament to the Vipshopers’ persistent pursuit of excellence, as well as the trust and support accorded it by consumers, brand partners and society through the years.
Over the past decade, the internet industry has experienced drastic growth amidst changing hotspots, but Vipshop has remained firm in its belief that the essence of business is value maximization. On the mission of “improving quality of life and enhancing experience of happiness”, our company constantly thinks about its positioning and role as a corporate citizen. This had led us to construct a complete system for responsibility fulfillment and to set clear goals under the guidance of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and the “13th Five-Year Plan”. Joining hands with our customers, employees and communities, we shall build a new ecology of innovative collaboration and create new value in the future.
A few days ago, Vipshop (VIP.COM, NYSE:VIPS) published the “Vipshop Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2018”. This is the fifth consecutive year that we issue our CSR report, and we will continue to examine our performance in social responsibility and seek opportunities to work together with our stakeholders in creating shared value.
