I'm not sure whether I need a new pair of glasses, or whether Yingli Solar needs a better designer for their billboard.
From Sweden a regular visitor here Chez Rémi has sent me an email after reading yesterday's blogpiece, to explain that it was because I'd misread its name that I could not find the website of the Chinese solar company that advertises in the World Cup stadiums.
It's Yingli, not Yingu.
Yingli Solar is a major solar energy company and one of the world's largest "vertically integrated" photovoltaic manufacturers. They develop, manufacture and sell photovoltaic modules in a range of places - Germany, Spain, Italy, Greece, France, South Korea, China, and the United States.
With headquarters in Baoding, China, the company has more than 6000 employees and more than 10 branch offices worldwide.
Yingli Green Energy is publicly listed on New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: YGE).
They "aspire to be socially and environmentally responsible in every decision" and their Mission is "to make solar power an enduring and cost-effective technology for all humankind".
Their web-site notes "At Yingli, our core values lie in fostering innovation, building trust and honoring our social responsibility."
