Due to the greenhouse effect, meteorological extremes occur all over the world. One natural disaster follows another, causing serious impacts on the environment and corporations. As a global citizen, TTY is determined to contribute its effort to environmental stewardship and conservation. Therefore, for the purpose of energy savings and carbon reduction, our company participated in the “Energy Saving and Carbon Reduction Guidance Project” sponsored by the Industrial Development Bureau, Ministry of Economic Affairs, in August 2010. Our company redesigned our electrical system, air pressure system, and air conditioning system. After this project was completed in April 2011, our company began to realize 25% savings on electricity and reaped substantial benefit on energy saving and carbon reduction.In 2015, our factory reduced 15.2% on electricity cost monthly, and the steps were efficient on carbon emission cuts.
 
In terms of the design for new factory buildings, we began to promote the design of green buildings in 2013. We adopted environment-friendly, green building material for the walls of structures and compartments of the factories.Furthermore, we had all factory lights changed over to the energy-efficient lights, and replaced the diesel forklifts with the electronic forklifts.We achieved effective allocation on the lighting instrument in operation areas, and we applied zoning in the control of switches to save energy in our daily lives. We implemented energy conservation in our buildings and continued to reduce energy consumption and the emission of CO2. Additionally, our company is adding plants to its spare land surface and using permeable pavement to achieve the green indicator and conservation of ground water at the building foundation. In the course of building the factory, our company reduced construction waste and used renewable building material, achieved earthwork equilibrium, and controlled construction air pollution. We achieved the goal of waste reduction.
 
To protect the environment and achieve sustainable operation, all factory sites of TTY practice air pollutant and waste (polluted) water treatment pursuant to applicable laws and the emission standards codified in Taiwan. Our company contracts with qualified waste processing service providers to process waste generated in the factories, implements waste classification, and increases the recycling rate. In addition, we require the factory under regular test for air pollutants. TTY also adopts the globally harmonized system of classification and labeling of chemicals (GHS) and displays hazard signs at work sites of the factory so that the company can disclose the hazardous material and harmful substance that employees are exposed to in the workplace. Our company also places the latest material safety data sheet (MSDS) for employees to review. For labor safety, we set up AED point on site in the factories.
Our company hopes that it can improve operational performance with the improvement of the internal environment in the corporation and with effective environment protection measures. Our company can also set a positive paradigm for the external environment and other companies in this industry.
 
TTY employs professional employees in environmental protection, safety, and heath functions. The company provides environmental protection, safety, health, and fire safety training and performs emergency drills in these areas. The company fulfills its responsibility in environmental stewardship in an exact manner and will grow and prosper with our mother earth.
