Waste reduction and management
Tatung's waste reduction concept is mostly from product design and process improvement to reduce the amount of industrial wastes. The wastes produced are properly classified and stored according to relevant regulations, and finally commissioned by domestic qualified treatment companies or reuse companies. Tatung audits the entrusted companies from time to time to ensure that the wastes are properly cleaned up.

In 2018, Tatung produced 2,862.98 tons of industrial wastes, of which 2,832.90 tons were general industrial wastes and 30.08 tons were hazardous industrial wastes. Although the amount of wastes have been reduced by 32% in the past 5 years. However, compared with year 2017, the amount of wastes produced in 2018 was only 4.07% less which did not meet our waste reduction target of 5% per year. We will continue to work hard through green design to reduce the amount of wastes in the future. In 2018, 2,074.85 tons of wastes were reused (72.47% of total wastes). The reuse rates in the past 4 years were all above 70%.
