Strategies and Guidelines on Environmental Sustainability
Management Authority- Energy Task Force
FENC established the intercompany and interdepartmental Energy Task Force in 2010. As the Company expands its territory, the Energy Task Force has also expanded its scope of management to cover production sites in Taiwan, Mainland China, Vietnam, Japan, the U.S. and Malaysia. As environmental sustainability gains traction, management issues also arise and require attentions. To implement energy management and operation, FENC production sites conduct energy management meetings at the plant level each month. The Energy Task Force consolidates the outcome from the plant meetings and presents it at the formal monthly energy management meetings. Every September, a special presentation on energy and carbon reduction is conducted with corporate executives such as the Chairman, Vice Chairman and President of each Business in attendance. As an effective means to regularly track and evaluate performance on environmental protection, FENC built the online database, Management Platform of Energy Conservation, Carbon Reduction and Circular Economy to systematically collect environmental data and implement internal environmental audits. In 2018, FENC established company-wide reduction targets. With 2021 as the year for the kickoff of GHG reduction campaigns, the Company has set carbon strategies and explored optimal pathways to reach them.
Special Budget for Energy Reduction and Environmental Protection
To promote implementations that help FENC fulfill environmental sustainability, all production sites set special budgets for energy conservation and environmental protection purposes. In 2010, NT$2 billion was appropriated as the special budget for energy conservation. In 2017, another NT$2 billion was appropriated to provide opportunities and resources for production sites to generate innovative energy conservation initiatives. Since 2018, the second special budget has infused NT$1.94 billion into 212 projects. In addition to the special budget, production sites also appropriate annual budget specifically for energy conservation and environmental protection. The 2021 energy conservation budget reached NT$1.28 billion, among which, NT$690 million are for new projects and NT$590 million are for continuation of existing projects. For details on the special budget for energy conservation and implementation. The 2021 environmental protection budget reached NT$460 million, among which, NT$410 million are for new projects and NT$50 million are for continuation of existing projects.
