Environmental Goal

1.    Annual Power Saving >1%
GWC’s major greenhouse gas emission comes from electricity, power saving and efficiency improvement are our first mission. Via introducing ISO 50001, GWC monitors heavy-power-consumption equipments and takes actions (energy-saving hot zone for ingot growth and heavily-doped products, water chiller unit replacement……) GWC also reviews correction plans periodically and advocates energy reduction internally so as to achieve continuous improvement on power saving.   
2.    50% Reduction on Production Waste & 50% Reduction on VOCs Emission per Wafer
GWC values waste management. GWC decreases waste through process improvement (DW introduction) and source reduction (including air pollution) GWC takes 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) to reduce new purchase and cut waste.
3.    Water Recycle Improvement
In Taiwan site, water recycle is managed by utility system and production. GWC continuously improves recycle efficiency and convenes regular meeting to discuss countermeasures and internal advocacy.
