WT ISO 14001 environmental management system (EMS) has been certificated, and the boundary includes Taiwan and Hong Kong logistics warehouses.
In order to achieve sufficient and transparent information disclosure, we are drafting a new environmental management system (EMS). The planned information disclosure includes baseline, boundary, goals, and overall schedule. This EMS programme ISO 14001 environmental management system is integrated. This new EMS programme is expected to incorporate our operations base in the mainland into the boundary.

A total of 12% reclaimed packaging materials in 2019. WT are the circular economy pioneers, progressively implement source reduction, and recycle and reuse the empty cartons after purchase for shipping packaging. The packaging materials needed for our logistics operations, such as outer boxes, cartons, cardboard, etc., are all made of renewable materials, which can be recycled or composted and regenerated by nature.
WT introduced the advanced "Extended Warehouse Management" (EWM) in 2014. When designing the system architecture, it has incorporated the concept of green environmental protection into the operation process and operating system design.
We have been disclosing Eco-Design information to transparency and stakeholder engagement since 2017. It also showcases the contributions of more than WT in making a positive impact on Eco-Design.
Driving energy-efficient performance and Eco-Design electronic products are one of the Environmental Policy. Eco-Design electronic product initiatives and by designing products with improved energy-efficient performance, which helps us meet customer needs and identify market expansion opportunities.
Since 2010, WT has 100% encouraged customers to buy low-power module products. In the design stage of innovative electronic products, it has been considered whether it will have an impact on the environment.
The low-power module products will optimize clients' electronic products to deliver industry-leading performance and best-in-class.
The low-power module products we sell include:
Low power consumption microprocessor
Low-power energy-saving power management chip
WT reduces GHG emissions. The Taiwan Zhonghe offices total GHG emissions in 2019 have been reduced by 4.55% compared to 2018, which has aligned reduction targets with 2% goal.
In the future, we set the goal for reducing 1% GHG emissions per year. Implementation includes:
WT has followed the international standard Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Waste Standards since 2016. We have established and implemented an Eco-friendly Reclaimed Products programme.

WT leads the industry in reducing or eliminating the harmful substances commonly used in electronics. Through our rigorous process analysis, we're constantly evolving our products and how we make them. So the materials we use are safer for the environment, the people who make our products, and the people who use them under Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive and REACH.
To understand the safety of our materials more comprehensively, we're identifying all the substances in every one of the parts and we get data on more parts every day. We then assess the chemicals in our materials using hazard and risk assessment tools to help us understand their effect on people's health and on the environment.
