  1. To conform to governmental environmental-protection regulations and customer requirements regarding environmentally banned substances. Only raw materials conforming to international environmental protection criteria will be used.
  2. Environmentally friendly designed products will be the focus of our research and development. Low pollution raw materials will be used to reduce environmental impacts.

  4. The promotion of environmental protection concepts to increase employee and supplier awareness in the area of environmental protection.

Environmental protection and sustainable management will remain the focus of our business operations. Various energy-saving approaches are implemented, such as replacing halogen lamps with LED lighting, which reduces heat generation. With regard to water usage, equipment is installed to stabilize water pressure and automatic sensor taps are installed in toilets to ensure more efficient water use, allowing water usage to be reduced to up to 35%. Air-conditioning will be seasonally adjusted and set to a constant temperature of 26°C to reduce electricity fees. In line with the promotion of environmental protection concepts, employees will be able to turn off computers, air conditioning and lights by themselves when leaving the office. In addition, they will effectively recycle and classify waste and used resources, such as leftovers, empty ink cartridges, metal and glass containers, waste paper and plastic bottles.
