Green Corporation

We understand that the failure of climate change mitigation and adaptation has become the most impacting sustainability issue that concerns the world. Apart from the attempt to demonstrate the influence of sustainability with actions and activities promoting environmental preservation, we hope to enforce the “environmental sustainability 4G (go prosperous, go innovative, go caring, and go inclusive)” and initiate the “Green Lifestyle Program” with stakeholders in order to contribute to the sustainable development of the Earth through the concerted efforts of green partners. In 2019, we arranged a total of 11,083 man-hours of environmental education for 9,046 employees.

"Rise Up"- Stair Climbing Competition

  • Coretronic installed a self-developed counter in each floor to record the carbon reduction footprint of the employee by stair climbing and held the “Rise Up” stair climbing competition since 2015 to internalize the environmental awareness of energy saving and carbon reduction internally in the Company. From the increase in the machine stability, friendly participation mechanism, interesting competition award system and encouraging employees to team up for stair climbing, the President of Energy Saving Business Group Sarah Lin specially invited employees to climb stairs to reduce carbon and led the stair climbing trend with a top-down approach. This was a specific action representing the internalization of green action in the Company.
  • The total number of stairs in the stair climbing activity reached the set goal with an increase of 53% in 2019 compared to 2017. There were 7,067 participants, which increased by 1,402 participants compared to 2018.
  • Since 2015, we have climbed a total of 116,546,845 staircases to save a total of 846.9 tonCO2e, 1,572,000 KWH of electricity, and over NT$4.7 million of electricity bill.


Green Family Day

Adopting the greening of the plant surroundings as the main focus, 107 employees with their dependents expanded the plants on the green rooftop to the surroundings of the plant to jointly build a comfortable work environment. In the meanwhile, we promoted the environmental education and awarded 20 personnel for outstanding performance in environmental protection to improve the environmental awareness of the employee and the loyalty to the Company. Besides, we invited the employee dependents to visit the plant for the first time to let them understand the work environment of the employees and participate in the green activities such as the “Rise Up” stair climbing and “planting in the green rooftop.” We also visited the coastal area of Long feng Fishing Port in Miaoli County adopted by the Company for beach cleanup and cleaned a total of 158kg of waste! We hope this activity can enlarge the green influence and expect more employees and their dependents can join the green activity to save the world together. The satisfaction of the activity reached 4.8 points (with full marks of 5) with the collection of 50 old books, 8.7 kg of used batteries and 200 receipts.


Coastal Cleanup Activity

We had released the promotional materials for ocean protection and we encourage our employees to reduce the use of disposable tableware to protect the marine ecosystem; we also had adopted the coastal areas from the Environmental Protection Bureau of Miaoli County in 2017 and continued to rally 265 employees and their families to clean up the beaches for three consecutive years. A total of 950kg of waste was cleaned up, and saved a total of 1.97 tonCO2e


Green Roof

Through academe-industry collaboration with the Institute of Environmental Engineering, National Chiao Tung University, we asked employees to make the base for potted plants with the empty PET bottles and grow vanilla on the roof using the capillary action of high-tech non-woven fabrics to supply water for the plants. Apart from greening the city, the green roof can reduce the urban heat island (UHI) effect, save energy, and gather storm water to achieve the low-carbon lifestyle. In addition to giving a way for employees to relieve work stress, we have successfully built an eco-friendly work environment with employees through this project.


Green Points

To support “1 Million Acts of Green”, the Environmental Protection Committee initiates ”Green Points” activity, and gives away “Green Points Card” to employees We hope employees will join various green activities to support Coretronic’s sustainable strategies and ideas. Since 2017, 1,888 employees have participated in this activity, and done 8,216 green acts so as to achieve the goal we set (Complete 2,020 green acts by 2020).
