Environmental Goals

 

The challenges brought about by climate change are now the focus of worldwide attention. Mitigation and adjustment have become important issues for the sustainable operation of businesses. As part of the financial industry, Taishin’s environmental impact comes mainly from electricity consumption and greenhouse gas emissions from its office buildings and operating bases. In support of the government's green policies and the goal of the "Paris Agreement" to control global temperature rise within 2℃, Taishin adopted ISO 50001 and implemented regular energy review, measurement and monitoring to raise the efficiency of energy usage. Taishin has also set its goals to "save energy by at least 1% per year" over the next 5 years. In 2017, Taishin collaborated with the Bureau of Energy, Ministry of Economic Affairs, to create an "Intelligent Energy Performance Management Information System," and became the first pilot company for this particular project. By introducing information tools, energy management personnel will have the means to explore areas of improvement and develop feasible solutions. 

Concrete Commitments

 

With global warming causing extreme global climate changes, reducing greenhouse gas emissions has become the most important issue for the citizens of our planet. Taishin introduced ISO 14001 - Environmental Management System to Neihu Building and Taishin Tower in 2018 and evaluated environmental impacts from all aspects of the corporate value chain. These findings have enabled Taishin to execute various action plans aimed at achieving effective control and improvement of environmental performance. Moreover, Taishin has also implemented an "Environmental Sustainability Policy." While continuing to pursue business excellence, we also take into account the importance of environmental protection. We follow the concepts of “conserve energy, save money, protect the environment.” We implement various energy conservation and CO2 emission measures in our operations and improve our energy performance to prevent our business operations from affecting the natural environment, our aim being to achieve a symbiosis between our enterprise and nature. Our commitments: 

  • To encourage all Taishin employees to establish habits to save energy and expenses and be implanted in their daily lives.

  • To continue to promote energy-saving and cost-saving measures and practices and create environmental protection environment so that all energy saving and environmental processes and activities comply with the regulatory requirements;.

  • To the best of our effort, campaign against pollution by means including recycling and low pollution in green procurement management to ensure effective environmental protection.

  • To enforce energy and environmental performance improvement and management and waste classification to reduce the impact on energy and the environment.

  • To exercise the dedication spirit and strengthen environmental protection and to keep energy conservation a constant priority to ensure mutual benefit of commerce and nature. 

  • To keep campaigning for energy saving and carbon reducing measures and to have all Taishin employees join the energy saving and carbon reducing activities.

Management Model

 

Faced with the possible risk of climate change, Taishin has been paying close attention while ensuring compliance with the latest regulations, and is actively supporting the government's green energy policies. In terms of renewable energy, Taishin installed solar power equipment at Neihu Building at the end of 2016 and supported the domestic renewable energy certification system introduced by Bureau of Standards, Ministry of Economic Affairs, in 2017 and became the first wave of companies to be certified for the purchase of renewable energy. In terms of management systems, Taishin completed the implementation of greenhouse gas survey at Taishin Tower and Neihu Building in 2016 (covering 31.6% of employees) and later expanded to the whole group in 2019 (covering 100% of employees) to enable more robust control and monitoring of greenhouse gas emission.

Energy Conservation & Carbon Reduction

Electricity is the main form of energy used by Taishin, whereas gasoline by corporate vehicles presents the second largest use of energy. In 2020, Taishin purchased 37,757,066.24 kWh(=135 GJ) of electricity, 134,332 liters of gasoline (=4386.06 GJ), and 0 liters of diesel fuel, consuming total energy of 4521.06 (GJ). During the year, 21,009.6 kWh of electricity generated from solar power was sold directly to Taiwan Power Company. Thus, Scope 1 emission totaled 1,033 tonnes CO2e while Scope 2 emission totaled 19,168 tonnes CO2e in 2020. Scope 1 and Scope 2 emission intensity were calculated at 2.011 tonnes CO2e per person.

Resource Utilization

In an attempt to reduce waste and environmental burden, Taishin has been advocating the idea of waste classification, recycling and reuse within the organization. All employees have been invited to participate in this initiative to ensure efficient use of resources. With respect to products and services, Taishin has been introducing digital products and services in line with the green finance trend to minimize the use of paper and energy. Services such as virtual cards, e-statements, mobile banking and online application features have all been designed to incorporate the organization's environmental protection philosophy and invite customers to join our cause.

Acation Plans and Results

  • Paperless Promotion

    In 2020, our projects included digitalization of account opening at branches, transaction statements, video records of corporate banking loan applications, online account opening for Taishin Securities, etc. We promoted paperless operations and reduced annual paper consumption by 1,470,241 pieces of paper which reduced life cycle carbon emissions by approximately 31 tons (calculated based on the emissions of primary wood pulp photocopy paper of 4.24kg CO2e/kg specified in the Environmental Protection Administration's Environment Resource Database, with the weight of each sheet of paper calculated as 5g).

  • Water Resources

    Taishin consumed 130,446 kiloliters of water in 2020, averaging 12.99 kiloliters per person. In addition to reducing unnecessary expenditures, we also increase employees' awareness of cherishing the environment and resources.

  • Waste Management

    Total volume of non-recyclable waste produced in 2020 was 747.88 tons. Taishin recycles iron, aluminum can, PET bottle, paper and hard drive; since 2019, additional categories such as fluorescent light, battery and toner have been added to the recycled list to facilitate reuse and renewal, and thereby reduce impact of waste on the environment.
