“Economic development should not create pollution to the environment but try to forge a marriage between corporative development and environmental protection” is a sentence that Tatung’s employees familiar with. We set up “Pollution Prevention Education Center” in 1988 to promote environmental education in the factories and subsidiaries. At this time, our management measures for sustainable environment are through the implementation of “Pollution, Prevention, Pays (3P) Program” and “ISO 14001 Environmental Management System” in the factories and subsidiaries.

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. Ten factories and subsidiaries participated in 2021. When there any non-conformity 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 non-conformities which can not be corrected by the end of year, we will track them and make them to be corrected next year.

Description of 3P Program and its performances

Aspects Measures Descriptions Performances
Product design aspect Encourage to develop green products to create additional values for products. Apply Design for the Environment, DfE”, in the design phase to produce “recyclable, low pollution, toxic-free, resource saving, power saving, and durable” products to benefit the environment. In 2021, we acquired Green Mark: 13 models; Energy Label: 99 models; Water Label: 8 models.
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. In 2021, 75.59% of industrial wastes were reused.
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. Ten factories and subsidiaries participated in 3P program.
Conformity Conduct internal audit. Conduct internal audit on regulation compliance in order to find out problem at first place and mitigate it. Non-conformity correction percentage was 92.2% in 2021.

ISO 14001 Environmental management system

Tatung believes that by implementing ISO14001 is able to continue improve environmental performances, export competitively, and company images. Thus, in 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. We commit that we will continue to run ISO 14001 in the factories and subsidiaries to improve environmental performances in the future.

Tatung takes great concern on the development of environmental protection regulations. When there are public hearings or seminars for new regulations, Tatung assigns professions to receive the latest information. Tatung implements environmental management system, internal control system on-site audit, and 3P Program on-site evaluation to ensure the operation activities are able to comply with environmental regulations.
