In support of the sustainability thought across the world, we began promoting green product actions in 2004, with Green Material, Green Manufacturing, Green Transportation and Green Design as the main features of our green product management system. Apart from promoting green product development, we enable more products to pass Green Mark certification to meet the goal of sustainable development.
In addition to introducing the green accounting system to collect and analyze green purchase performance, Coretronic purchased green materials to thoroughly implement green supply chain management. The total purchase amount of green materials for the plants in Taiwan and China in 2021 occupied 97% of the total purchase amount in the same year.
|The amount of green material procurement (NTD 100m)||124.7||153.7||231|
|The amount of material procurement (NTD 100m)||128.6||159.8||238.1|
|The percentage of green material procurement (%)||97%||96%||97%|
To realize environmental values, we optimize the packaging design, use recycled paper to make wrappings, and adopt environment-friendly ink to print and simplify packaging.
Molded pulp is made of recycled waste paper. In 2017 Q1, we began verifying molded paper packaging materials with the drop test and the storage test. After passing the tests, it will be used in packaging. Such kind of natural, non-toxic, lead free, decomposable, pollution free, and waste free buffering material can effectively reduce the variety packaging materials and the quantity of packaging. Along with soy ink printing and package simplification, everything is eco-friendly. In 2021, 68% products used molded pulp.
It has been applied to the product platforms of R70 projector to reduce 42% packaging materials.
The waste cartons and cultural paper for printing, books or newspaper produced during the manufacture process and by the offices of the plants in Taiwan were transported to the paper manufacturers in Taiwan for recycling through legal environment-friendly waste disposal service suppliers. Paper products made from 80%~100% recycled pulp and attached with the Green Mark were purchased from their downstream manufacturers to support the “Resources Recycling and Reusing Program” of the Environmental Protection Administration and achieve the goals of “recycle of wastes to displace exploitation of natural resources, full circulation of materials, and zero waste.” In 2021, 1,723,891 shipping cartons made from recycled pulp and attached with the Green Mark were purchased for the plants in Taiwan.
When trays are unusable anymore after repeated use, all scrapped trays are commissioned to tray suppliers for recycling to achieve the goals of “waste to resources, replacement of natural resource exploitation, total substance recycling, and zero waste”. In 2021, 22,631 scrapped trays were recycled to reduce waste by 1.13 tons and carbon by 2.33 tCO2e.
