Management Framework

FENC evaluates the risks and opportunities brought by climate change and responds with concrete strategies. We believes that natural resources are meant to be shared among all humanity, hence regarding energy and resource efficiency as the means to prevent resource depletion. With a strong commitment to protecting natural habitats and resources from pollution.

Sustainability Strategies and Management Approaches at FENC

 

Environmental and Energy Management Authority: Energy Task Force

FENC established the inter-departmental Energy Task Force in 2010. With each FENC Business as the unit, the task force establishes mechanisms for internal environmental audit and review, and charts the operation and planning of environmental and energy management systems. The scope of management covers FENC production sites in Taiwan, mainland China, Vietnam, Japan, Malaysia and the U.S., where teams are established to implement and oversee the management of water resources, air pollution, waste materials as well as energy and emission reduction, which includes the management of GHG, renewable energy and emerging carbon reduction technologies.

A monthly Energy Task Force management meeting is held at all production sites. During the meeting, the environmental performance and responses targeting climate risks and opportunities are reported to high-level executives. Adjustments are made to energy and resource management policies based on actual conditions to fulfill FENC’s mission to foster environmental sustainability. 

The Energy Task Force systematically collects environmental data from all production sites through an online database. Performance review and tracking are conducted during the monthly energy management meeting. Every September, a special briefing on energy and carbon reduction is conducted with the convener and committee members of the Energy Task Force presenting annual performance and future plans to corporate executives such as the Chairman, Vice Chairman and President of each Business in attendance to establish future strategies and plans.

Organizational Framework of Energy Task Force

 

Special Budget for Energy Reduction and Environmental Protection

To implement projects furthering the objectives of improving environmental performance and fulling its sustainable vision, FENC has been appropriating budgets for energy conservation and environmental protection purposes since 2010. In 2023, FENC moved full steam ahead towards the net-zero transition, and appropriated NT$2.65 billion for energy reduction from 2024 to 2025.

The special budget for environmental protection from 2024 to 2025 amounts to NT$750 million. Among the projects funded are the removal of waste gas from the boiler exhaust, and the R&D budget for the avoidance or reduction of pollution, waste and resource consumption.

Energy Reduction and Environmental Protection Technical Exchange Meeting

The Energy Task Force conducts energy reduction and environmental protection technical exchange meetings to promote dialogues among FENC production sites. The meeting, which is cross-Business and cross-regional, was suspended for three years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. When the meeting resumed in May 2023, the committee members from the task force visited 11 production sites in mainland China and Vietnam, observing best practices in environmental management as well as energy and carbon reduction through in-person exchange. The 2023 exchange focused on three major aspects. First, to reach the FENC-wide GHG targets, the progress of energy and emission reduction projects from each production site is reviewed, and representatives from each production site share the performance of major projects. Second, measures for environmental management were presented, including water resources, air pollution and waste materials. Case studies featuring outstanding projects were shared during the exchange as a best practice guide to refine environmental performance for all production sites. Third, progress of the implementation of management systems was shared, including ISO 50001, ISO 46001 and ISO 14067 with experience exchange. A total of 130 participants attended the meetings. Such exchange amplified the effect of energy conservation measures through on-site demonstrations and shared technological insights, ultimately fulfilling energy and carbon reduction while minimizing environmental impact across all FENC production sites to reach a green and sustainable future.
