In 2023, GigaDevice established and achieved internal environmental goals for energy, resources and waste disposal, and based on which we further developed plans and measures after taking into account the Company's current situation, so as to effectively dispose of wastes, improve the recycling utilization of resources and reduce the negative impact of our business operations on the environment.
Environmental Goals by GigaDevice in 2023
100% disposal controlled and centralized recycling of solid wastes
Harmless disposal of solid wastes
Saving power consumption by 10% for the same time frame last year
Lowering the consumption of other energy sources per CNY 10,000 of output value for the same time frame last year
Compliance of purchased and integrated products with RoHS 2.0 requirements
Giving a top priority to ecological and environmental protection and sustainable development of resources all long, GigaDevice has applied the concept of going green and environmental protection into its daily operations by optimizing the energy efficiency of office buildings, boosting the publicity of energy conservation and implementing a paperless office. All of these have contributed to a reduced office energy consumption and an enhanced sustainable performance in business operations.
