EMS Management Approach

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.

Greenhouse Gas Emissions

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:

  1. Install time controllers on air conditioners and lamps,
  2. motion sensor lighting,
  3. power saving mode for copying machine, water filter, coffee machines,
  4. Replace high energy-consuming equipment every year,
