Dear shareholders,

Policies for the new energy vehicles have been adjusted and global automotive electrification was accelerated. Facing opportunities and challenges, the Company, underpinned by the concept of “using limited resources to create unlimited value”, spared no effort to promote management upgrades, global layout, technological innovation, and sustainable development, leaving behind a solid footprint in every direction.

Outstanding results of core business

This honour did not come easily. Thanks to our unremitting efforts in the past three years, our lithium hydroxide products have gained a good reputation worldwide from scratch. It was the result of the joint efforts of engineering designers, the production technology management team of 10,000-ton lithium salt factory, and the international marketing team..

Reinforcing risk management and control

The company continuously bolsters its risk management system by carrying out risk management competitiveness evaluation on a regular basis. In 2019, based on the IATF 16949 system, the company carried out a management review to comprehensively and effectively identify the risk points existing in the company. Internal and external factors and needs of stakeholders were reviewed in order to reasonably avoid potential risks and strengthen the company's risk management. The management review required the addition of such contents as environmental factors and hazard sources identification, departmental knowledge collection and management, departmental risk identification and management, etc. into the range of responsibilities of all department heads to ensure the effectiveness and comprehensiveness of risk management.
The company used Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT) analysis to identify and evaluate each risk point, creating the risk identification and evaluation control form for internal and external factors and the risk identification and evaluation control form for related parties' demands and expectations. These forms are used to guide and coordinate the implementation of risk management objectives and the response to risks at all levels. We also unified risk evaluation standards to fortify the company's overall risk management.

Anti-Corruption and Pro-Integrity

Integrity and self-discipline are the consistent corporate tenets of Ganfeng Lithium. The company has continuously improved the mechanism for supervising and reporting corruption, including an audit department established to formulate regulations and a disciplinary inspection and supervision team to investigate and handle reported cases. Adhering to the attitude of zero tolerance for corruption, the company has continuously optimised anti-corruption work. In 2019, the company strictly implemented the anti-corruption and anti-bribery control procedures in accordance with relevant national policies, laws, rules and regulations, requiring employees in important positions, all customers, suppliers and contractors with whom the company has business dealings to sign the Letter of Commitment to Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption. This also helped to comprehensively strengthen anti-corruption management and control at all levels. The company formulated the antifraud and whistle-blowing system to clarify the anti-fraud responsibilities and the investigation procedures. We unblocked all reporting channels including whistle-blowing hotlines and email addresses posted on official websites, office areas, and whistleblowing mailboxes, while taking protective measures for whistle-blowers.
