The Company has established our environmental policies with the “environmental protection, regeneration and sustainability” as the goals. We request all the operating bases to observe local environmental regulations, treasure the resources on the earth, recycle products, improve energy efficiency, reduce GHG emissions, and prohibit from use of substances harmful to the environment for the purpose to reduce the impact on the environment.
Our R&D team makes use of the technology for realization of decision to protect the earth, including improving the process and equipment or developing products of low energy consumption to save energy and reduce carbon emissions, and gradually increasing the use of PCR (Post Consumer plastic), a recycled plastic material, in the production of plastic shells to reduce the use of new materials and march toward the circular economy.
Smart Energy MonitoringIn order to meet the increasingly severe energy challenges and minimize the impact on the ecology, Getac's energy policy is to cherish resources and improve energy efficiency by means of process energy saving and emissions reduction. Getac seeks to manage the gradual reduction of the intensity of greenhouse gas emissions year by year. By improving the adoption rate of automation, enhancing intelligent energy consumption monitoring, improving energy-saving design of major process equipment, and replacing major energy-consuming equipment with new ones, we are able to effectively control the intensity of greenhouse gas emissions.
Emissions intensity was reduced to 126 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per million U.S. dollars in 2021, down 11% from 141 metric tons in 2020. Getac also reduces the impact on the environment by integrating energy resources through cross-industry integration to recycle and reuse waste steam. The "Energy Consumption, GHG Emission & Water Use of Getac Holdings (stand-alone) and subsidiaries in 2021", please refer to page 69 and page 74 of this report.
Water Resource ManagementWith the rapid changes in global climate, the access to freshwater is vital to the survival of all human beings. The 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda passed by the United Nations will also set the: “Ensure that all people have access to water and health facilities of sustainable management.” as the key agenda. How to save water resources and clean discharge has become an important issue for the Corporate Sustainable Development. Based on a philosophy of cherishing global resources, Getac is firmly determined to use every drop of water to maximum effect The total water withdraw in 2021 amounted to 734.38 megaliters, the total water discharge was 486.45 megaliters, and total water consumption was 297.03 megaliters. Currently, only the production water can be recycled and reused, and the domestic water in the plant cannot be recycled. Water intensity (water withdrawal (megaliters) / revenue (million USD) was 0.73.
