(Hong Kong, 18 August 2023) – Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP) congratulates park company, Windrose HK Holdings Limited (Windrose), a pioneering developer of zero-emission and intelligent heavy-duty trucks, on its major partnership with global sports retailer, Decathlon and Rokin Logistics, in a joint mission to create more sustainable global supply chain operations.
The partnership’s spearhead initiative involves the road testing of Windrose’s cutting-edge electric trucks for Decathlon. This endeavor aligns seamlessly with Decathlon’s commitment to achieving a 20% reduction in absolute CO2 emissions (including scope 1, scope 2 and scope 3) by 2026, a goal that underscores their dedication to combating climate change and advancing sustainable practices.
The collaboration between these visionary companies has united their efforts to address the urgent challenge of carbon emissions, particularly in the logistics industry. Rokin Logistics has not only strategically invested in Windrose but has also placed a forward-looking order of up to 200 Windrose zero-emission trucks, with deliveries slated to commence in 2024.
As a new member of the HKSTP innovation ecosystem, Chinese startup Windrose proudly opened its Hong Kong office in April this year at the Science Park campus. This partnership with HKSTP has ignited a new phase of growth, allowing Windrose to harness the power of innovation and tap into the HKSTP network that empowers Chinese and global startups to thrive on the international stage.
