“We are delighted to have received this endorsement of our efforts in the areas of sustainability and quality. The monitoring audits conducted by DEKRA again demonstrate that the projects we have initiated as part of our Strategy 2025 are bearing fruit. The latter is also a way for us to show that business success and sustainability are not mutually exclusive but go hand in hand. Even during a global pandemic, we must not lose our focus on quality and sustainability,” emphasizes Thomas Vogel, COO DHL Freight.

The uniform implementation of quality, environmental and energy management standards has been audited by DEKRA, an independent provider of certifications that surveys and audits corporate management systems. 335 DHL Freight sites and service partners have received the ISO 9001 (Quality Management), ISO 14001 (Environmental Management) and ISO 50001 (Energy Management) certification.

“DHL Freight has once more proven the certification of its global management system. In spite of the global pandemic, the second monitoring audit of the quality, sustainability and energy management system was completed successfully. DHL Freight has been meeting these requirements at a high level for many years, something that the company can be truly proud of,” states Dr Rolf Krökel, Managing Director of DEKRA Certification GmbH.

By mid-2021, the matrix certification for all locations worldwide is to be expanded to include the ISO 45001 standard (Occupational Health and Safety Management). This will make the established occupational health and safety management system that has been in place globally at DHL Freight and its service partners for years part of the externally audited and certified processes.

ISO 45001 is a standard published in 2018 that specifies requirements and implementation guidelines for an occupational health and safety management system, replacing the British standard OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series).

“The successful execution of external digital audits during the peak phase of the Covid-19 pandemic demonstrates our unlimited ability to act in times of crisis as well as the outstanding commitment of all functions and divisions of DHL Freight. Our customers can rely on the fact that we at DHL Freight fully comply with strict international quality, environmental and energy guidelines as well as occupational health and safety requirements.

The certification highlights the real sense of responsibility we have towards our employees and also shows that we are already setting standards for the future with regard to digitalization at DHL Freight,” Thomas Vogel explains.

Guangzhou Gudou Quanfeng Residence has 33 guest rooms, including 2 two-bedroom suites and 3 three-bedroom suites. The design is modelled on one of the ancient Lingnan (southern Chinese) architectural style, "Guanyindou", which features the shape of two handles of a wok on either sides of the roof of a building in the ancient town of Shawan, Panyu. Carrying on the tradition of the "Gudou" brand, the hotel organizes one-stop leisure and entertainment activities and are installed with comprehensive facilities to provide a new experience for tourists who prefer to enjoy the finer things in life in the traditional ambience.

Guangzhou Gudou Quanfeng Residence is conveniently located in the Hills Ecool Creative Park in Panyu, which occupies a total site area of​​340,000 square meters at the southern tip of Panyu District. The hotel is easily accessible by a developed network of roads around the Hills, including South China Expressway, Xinguang Express, Nansha Port Express and other highways. Therefore, it is easy to travel from the hotel to Zhujiang New Town in Guangzhou, and thus elsewhere in the Pearl River Delta. It takes five minutes to reach the Chimelong Paradise, and the Blessing Colorful World within easy reach. The Clifford Station on Metro Line 21 will also be opened in 2021 and it is only an about 10-minute walk from the hotel. In the Panyu Golden Valley Eko Creative Park, a head office for environmental operation of business and a district for shopping and leisure will be built. Such plan has earned the park a reputation as "China's Number One Low-Carbon Community". The rising occupancy rates of the office buildings in Panyu will also mean an increase in business travelers who, in turn, can drive up the occupancy rates of the hotel and the spending there.

There are many well-known tourist attractions near Guangzhou Gudou Quanfeng Residence, including Chimelong Paradise, Blessing Colorful World, Dafu Mountain Forest Park, Lianhua Mountain Tourist Area, Shawan Ancient Town and IKEA Store, which is popular with young people. The Evergrande Football Stadium, which can seat 100,000 spectators, is also expected to be completed in 2022 and will be able to accommodate tourists who stay in Guangzhou for two days and one night.

Mr. HON Chi Ming, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director of the Group, said, "The Group is very satisfied and encouraged by the opening of the Guangzhou Gudou Quanfeng Residence. The hotel is conveniently located in an area where there are comprehensive facilities. Therefore, the area is expected to attract a large number of tourists. Since the apartment hotel has already been renovated and equipped with upgraded facilities and soft furnishings, not much more capital will be required for putting the hotel in operation in a short time. This means cost-effectiveness at the hotel and can quickly responding to the trend of tourism recovery. Looking ahead, tourism property development will remain the focus of the Group's business development. Specifically, we will actively expand our tourism property business in Guangdong Province, provide more quality services to meet customer needs, and increase investors' awareness of Gudou Holdings' brand. All this is aimed at creating better returns."
