In view of the global situation, climate change, resource depletion, and energy shortages have become important issues for enterprises. Upholding the commitment to environmental sustainability, we began to use the new green corporate identity in 2015 to represent vitality and announced our determination to maintain environmental protection. As a materials and equipment distributor, we provide knowledge and technical services and engage in no manufacturing activities. Although we do not produce wastewater or exhaust, we still uphold our responsibility for environmental sustainability. By constantly implementing energy conservation and carbon emissions reduction at the HQ building through energy conservation, water conservation, and paper conservation, we deeply understand the significant environmental impact of products and services. Hence, from the selection of product sources, packaging, and recycling, we carefully consider their potential environmental impacts in order to reduce their environmental burdens to contribute to our environment.
Progressive development of building digitization using the ESCO system. In electricity consumption for lighting, to enforce environmental protection and energy conservation, we began to progressively replace all lamps with LED lamps in 2013. Also, we installed sensor lighting fixtures at the motorcycle parking lot and turn off office lighting for 1.5 hours each day. In terms of air conditioning, we set the startup sequence through the remote monitoring devices under the energy conservation project. Besides automatically turning air conditioning on and off at 07:00 and 19:00, and the temperature of each floor is set to reduce electricity consumption. Additionally, chillers, elevators, and air conditioner fans are maintained regularly, and some elevators are shut down on Saturdays, Sundays and national holidays to reduce electricity consumption.
The total electricity consumption in 2022 will increase by 14% compared with that in 2021. The main reason is that during the epidemic in 2021, there will still be shunt work, which highlights the increase in 2022 in comparison. However, if viewed in terms of energy intensity, there will be a significant drop in 2022. In the following year, we will continue to require electricity consumption management and regularly collect electricity consumption data to report to the supervisor. At the same time, we will educate and educate colleagues to achieve the effect of saving electricity and energy, and manage and adjust reasonable contracted electricity consumption capacity at any time. Set an energy-saving target for the next year: electricity consumption will be reduced by 3% compared to 2022.

At TOPCO, we have a total of 77 company cars divided into officer (personal) cars and business cars. Besides equipping all company cars with GPS (except for officer cars), we also set mileage limits and maintain regular maintenance as necessary to ensure vehicle condition to maximize their efficiency. Additionally, the better the vehicle condition is, the less environmental impact company cars will cause. For vehicles exceeding the mileage limits, breaking traffic regulations, and having abnormal fuel consumption, we will follow up and manage them and make improvement to ensure the annual reduction of fuel consumption. In 2022, due to business needs, 3 more vehicles will be added, and the fuel consumption of vehicles will increase slightly by 0.7%. However, if viewed in terms of energy intensity, there will be a significant drop in 2022.

Through centralized procurement, we unify the lease of multi-function printers on all floors of the HQ building and replace them with new equipment when the three-year lease is due to maintain equipment in the best condition and enhance equipment efficiency and performance. All multi-function printers on each floor are equipped with access control to facilitate management units to effectively manage paper consumption through system setup and analyzing the paper consumption of each department with statistical techniques.
In the future, we can make continual improvement through constant monitoring and provide correct data management reports for all units to review the fairness of paper consumption in order to request users to take self-control through this transparent model for machine paper consumption management to avoid a waste of resources. We will also enhance the promotion of energy conservation, carbon reduction, and paper conservation.
In 2022, total paper consumption was 6% less than in 2021. Annual target for paper consumption in 2023: 2% less than in 2022.

We have no factories and all operational sites are office buildings. Hence, the water consumed by all of our facilities is tap water 100% supplied by the Taipei Water Department and Taiwan Water Corporation. All water is domestic water use. As our services do not engage in production process that produce industrial wastewater, we discharge only domestic sewage. As most of our operational sites are connected with the buildings of local communities, domestic sewage is discharged in accordance with law, and the total discharge cannot be exactly measured. In water consumption, we enhance control at the source. For example, we install water-efficient shower heads and taps in the pantries and toilets on each floor of the HQ building, enhance internal promotion of the concept and knowledge of water saving, and post “save water” slogans near water-using equipment.
The total water consumption in 2022 will increase by 11% compared with 2021. The main reason is that during the epidemic in 2021, there will still be diversion to work, which highlights the increase in 2022 in comparison. Set an annual goal for the next year: save 1% of water consumption compared to 2022.

Waste sorting, food waste recycling, and resource recycling are implemented within the office. By sorting and recycling the waste produced in the office, the environmental impact is reduced. To implement “cradle to cradle” for waste, we rent office automation machines, e.g., photocopiers, computers, and company cars, to achieve waste to producers.
In addition to supplying boxed meals, we offer “made to order” table service for six types of set meals each day to regulate and control order quantity, prevent food waste, and reduce kitchen waste. Through this, we aim to reduce carbon and love Earth with real action by protecting the environment from daily food consumption. We also encourage employees to prepare their own tableware to reduce the consumption of single-use products.
As we do not have our own factory, we do not produce industrial waste, and only produce domestic waste. Domestic waste is cleaned up by professional cleaning companies and transported either for landfilling or incineration. Recyclable waste is sorted or recycled by cleaning companies.
According to the document management method, the storage period is set for various types of paper documents. The administrative unit regularly collects the documents with the storage period every year and sends them to the waste incineration plant for general waste destruction.
Compliance with the Environmental Protection Act: No non-compliance with the Environmental Protection Act was reported in 2022.
