Carbon Management

TWM introduced the ISO14064-1 Greenhouse Gas Inventory since 2012 and verified through third party verifying units to ensure data quality. We also considering the increasing annual greenhouse emissions due to ongoing growth of mobile communications and cloud service volumes, greenhouse gas management objectives have been laid out since 2014.

GHG Inventory

Item 2014 2015 2016
Scope1(Direct Emissions)(ton-CO2e) 7,117.86 7,262.71 5,871.03
Scope2(Indirect Emissions)(ton-CO2e) 201,453.59 236,960.64 245,578.21
Total Carbon Emissions (Scopes 1 and 2)(ton-CO2e) 208,571.45 244,223.35 251,449.24

GHG Reduction Target

(Remarks: Although GHG emission reduction absolute targets set as 1%, considering IDC Data Center expand continuously, all the base station, office, direct sales outlets sites set their reduction absolute targets as 3%)

Taiwan Mobile is committed to managing carbon emissions throughout the entire organization. We hope that green practices will become an integral part of our employees' everyday business activities. In 2015, we began to quantify the carbon footprint of our commuting employees and those who travel on business based on the Green House Gas Protocol Scope 3 of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development's (WBCSD) in setting the inventory scope and calculating mileage.
