ISO 14001 Environmental Management System

Tatung believes that by implementing ISO14001 is able to continue improve environmental performances, and improve export competitively and company images. Thus, in May, 1996, Tatung started to implement ISO14001 among the factories and the subsidiaries. So far all 4 factories have established ISO 14001 and certified every year. I.S.O has released ISO 14001:2015 and we commit all the factories and subsidiaries will update to the new version by 2018.

Pollution Prevention Pays (3P) Program

Tatung started to implement "Pollution Prevention Pays, 3P" program in the factories and the subsidiaries which have manufacturing function since 1993 to help Tatung to develop environmentally sound operations. The elements of 3P program are listed as follows:
Measures Descriptions
Manufacturing aspect Promote Clean Production technology, fully utilize resources and materials and to reduce the wastes and the production costs. Improve the existing manufacturing processes and management operations to eliminate sources of pollution. Also improve upon the recycling/reuse and exchange/reuse of waste materials.
Product aspect Encourage to develop green products to create additional values for products. Apply Design for the Environment, DfE, in the design phase to product “recyclable, low pollution, toxic-free, resource saving, power saving, and durable” products to benefit the environment.
Management aspect Perform 3P Program on-site evaluation in the factories and subsidiaries regularly. The results can benefit management in their review of environmental performances and draft of new policy and objectives.
Conformity Conduct internal audit. Conduct internal audit on regulation compliance in order to find out problem at first place and mitigate it.

When there any incidents found against company rules or with potential to cause environmental pollution, we will list such incidents and request the factories and the subsidiaries to correct them. We also set yearly correction target to be 95%. For the incidents which can not be corrected by the end of year, we will track them and make them to be corrected next year. In 2016, 42 incidents (without subsidiaries) were requested to be corrected and 41 were completed by the end of 2016. The correction rate was 97.62% and met target.
