    Introduction
    Taiwan passed the "Greenhouse Gas Reduction and Management Act" in 2015, the future of corporate carbon emissions towards total control. In 2014, the government announced the "Regulations on Setting Energy Conservation Objectives and Execution Plans for Energy Users”, where energy users with a contracted electricity consumption capacity of more than 800 kW should achieve an "average annual savings rate" of 1% or more from 2015 to 2019.
    To comply with Tainan City's "Low Carbon City Autonomy Ordinance" and the regulations of the Bureau of Energy, MOEA’s Energy Management Program, as well as to increase the utilization rate of clean energy, the company planned to install a solar power system on the roof of the first factory in 2 phases. Phase 1 has a capacity of 411.84 KW, which was completed in September 2016, and phase 2 has a capacity of 199.68 KW, which was completed in November 2016. The total installed capacity of both phases is 611.52 KW.
     
    Solar power accounted for 1.3% of total power generation in 2020.
    The solar power system generated 851,848 kWh of electricity in 2020, and all electricity generated was used by CMMT, reducing CO2 emissions by approximately 434 metric tons (according to the 2019 electricity CO2 emissions equivalent announced by the Bureau of Energy, MOEA).
    Water resource management
    To prevent the impact of torrential rain or drought caused by climate change, CMMT has assessed the water resource risks and developed water-saving technology to decrease water consumption and monitor water quality automatically. Under the premise of legal compliance, CMMT will strive to minimize environmental impact.
    CMMT conducts water resource management based on the ISO14001 management system, where water resource management data from various factories globally are monitored in real-time from a central location. Furthermore, the company continues to implement water resource conservation measures including the replacement and renewal of antiquated pipelines, water valve inspection, and water consumption inspection, implementation of water resource recycling and reutilization measures, as well as the reinforce education and promotion of routine management at various factories. The purpose is to decrease the consumption of circulating water by factory infrastructure/facilities such as AC, air compressors, and household water by the employees.
    In 2020, the total water consumption was 721,569 metric tons. An increase of 80,810 metric tons compared to the base year of 2019.
     
    In 2020, the factory-wide water recycling rate was 96.2%.
