Green Life

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.

"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, 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.
  • Since 2015, we have climbed a total of 142,680,119 staircases to save a total of 1,037 tonCO2e, 1,980 MWh of electricity, and over NT$4.7 million of electricity bill.

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.
