In order to implement the company’s sustainable development and carbon reduction goals, Nafco has been verified in accordance with ISO 14064-1:2018 by the AFNOR ASIA on 24th, October 2023, with a 100% achievement rate.
To reduce the impact of greenhouse gas emissions on global warming, Nafco has teamed up with ”GHG Survey Committee” in 2022 to conduct a greenhouse gas inventory and promote carbon reduction-related operations to meet the needs of customers and other stakeholders for carbon emissions information. Statistics of greenhouse gas emissions in 2022, including Direct GHG emissions (category 1) of 396.6929 tons of CO2e, Energy indirect GHG emissions (category 2) of 8,722.2366 tons of CO2e, and indirect GHG emissions (category 3~6) of 2,793.5764 tons of CO2e, the total emissions of 11,912.5059 tons of CO2e.
2050 Net-Zero emission path planned by the government, Nafco will accelerate the promotion of various sustainable affairs, regularly disclose the results of greenhouse gas inventory, and review energy conservation and carbon reduction year by year. At the same time, strengthen the management of upstream and downstream carbon footprint of products, and actively reduce the impact of product life cycle on the environment, so as to enhance the company’s sustainable operation strength and resilience, and move towards ESG transformation.
- Identify environmental considerations to prevent environmental pollution
- To implement environmental management by identifying the impact that the company’s existing and future activities, products and services may have on the environment through environmental considerations.
- Practice energy conservation and carbon reduction to protect the planet.
- Reduction and proper recycling at the source
- Implement water conservation and proper treatment
Upholding the belief that there is only one Earth, we actively improve our performance in climate change response, pollution prevention and control, energy and resource conservation, waste reduction, OHS management, and fire prevention to lower the overall environmental and OHS risk. We have also passed the certification for the ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System (EMS) to enforce environmental policy featuring respect and protection for Earth through the standardized routine management so as to fulfill our corporate social responsibility (CSR).
We began to actively engage in environmental protection and energy conservation, environmental education promotion, environmental protection and energy conservation culture building, and the implementation of measures related to environmental protection and energy conservation in 2019. Through continual process improvement and establishment and implementation of energy conservation policies, we aim to lower pollution, reduce energy consumption, and achieve eco-friendliness.
Carbon Emission Reduction
To enhance the efficiency of resources, we invest in energy conservation activities such as using the photovoltaic system, LED energy-saving bulbs, green power and energy, and inverter devices; replace the IE3 motors; and implement aircon automatic control. We have also many renewable energy certificates (RECs) to maximize the efficiency of energy and resources to effectively reduce carbon emissions. In 2022, the feed-in solar energy was 212,584kWh, Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions were 108,205 kg/CO2e, and we have obtained 60 Taiwan RECs. The expansion project of the PV system for Plant III and establishment of the real-time electricity monitoring management platform are under planning for 2023.
To cherish Earth’s resources and reduce environmental impacts, apart from implementing paperless operations (operations are done electronically), we also encourage employees to make photocopies on both sides of the paper and use recycled bin liners.
To enforce environmental protection and value Earth’s resources, we have promoted the water conservation policy and taken related measures and invested in the wastewater treatment system and rainwater harvesting system to ensure water reclamation and reuse to practice CSR and protect Earth. In 2022, effluent discharge was 72,301MT and rainwater harvesting was 899MT.
