We are now facing tremendous challenges from global climate change. Leading by example,
Taiwan Mobile is committed to reducing carbon emissions from operational activities, developing environmental strategies, and improving the efficiency in resource utilization. At the same time we also aim to fulfill our responsibility in protecting the environment by taking advantage of our
core capabilities in the communications industry to provide green products and services.
Commitment and Actions
The Environmental Management Committee develops environmental policies and objectives, pursues ISO certifications and develops smart energy conservation.
Carbon risk management: We review the performance of our energy saving and carbon reduction efforts and track greenhouse gas inventories on a regular basis.
Renewable energy applications: We continue to support green energy initiatives and expand the construction of our green energy infrastructure.
Resource conservation and waste recycling: We continue to improve the efficiency of resource utilization and dispose of general business waste properly.
