The article focuses on the charitable works of Shi Zhengrong, founder of Suntech Power, which went public on the New York Stock Exchange in December 2005. In the past two years, Shi has handed out or pledged $2 million to non-profit and charitable work in China. Much of it has gone to build homes and finance other projects in his hometown, Yangzhong, a three-hour drive northwest of Shanghai. But he has also contributed $5 million to the Alliance for Climate Protection in California, which is led by former U.S. Vice President Al Gore.
