Tatung takes great concern on the development of environmental protection regulations. When there are public hearings or seminars for new regulations, Tatung assigns professions to receive the latest information. In the factories, we implement ISO 14001, internal audit and 3P Program evaluation to ensure the operations are complied with regulations.
ISO 14001 environmental management system
Tatung believes that by implementing ISO14001 is able to continue improve environmental performances, and improve export competitively and company images. Thus, in 1996, Tatung started to implement ISO14001 among the factories and the subsidiaries. So far all 4 factories have established ISO 14001 and certified every year.
ISO published ISO 14001:2015 in 2015, we have updated the management system to 2015 version for Tayuan Plant, Taoyuan Wires and Cables Plant, and San-Hsia Factory in 2017. We are targeting to complete to update work for Taoyuan 1st Plant in 2018.

When there any incidents found against company rules or with potential to cause environmental pollution, we will list such incidents and request the factories and the subsidiaries to correct them. We also set yearly correction target to be 95%. For the incidents which can not be corrected by the end of year, we will track them and make them to be corrected next year. In 2017, 90 incidents (without subsidiaries) were requested to be corrected and 87 were completed by the end of 2017. The correction rate was 96.67% and met target.
