Energy Conservation and Carbon Reduction

      In order to effectively implement energy conservation and carbon reduction policies and to continue to promote energy conservation movement, all units continue to promote the Four Savings Project (oil saving, electricity saving, water saving and paper saving), and relevant energy-saving targets are set and meetings are held regularly to review the effectiveness of energy conservation.

Item of Energy Conservation Energy saving measures and effectiveness 
Energy saving measures in Agriculture Business Division Improved A/C equipment for electricity conservation of 386,000 kWh in the Flask Room of the seedling field of Wushulin Recreation Park.
Replaced old air-conditioners with new ones for flower induction in our Puli Sugar Factory, saving 138,000 kWh of electricity.
In Dalin Sugar Factory, the greenhouse insulation films were improved. In winter, it can be heated, reducing the use of natural gas, reducing the power consumption from 236,000 kWh to 229,449 kWh, saving 6,551 kWh, equivalent of NTD 23,875 on natural gas bills.
Renovated the greenhouse water wall equipment in Wushulin and Taitung Sugar Factory, saving 26,000 kWh of electricity.
Replaced of lighting equipment, saving 5,600 kWh of electricity.
Energy saving measures in Hypermarket Business Division Hypermarket Business Division continues to promote the “Four Savings Project” (oil saving, electricity saving, water saving and paper saving) and hold regular meetings to review effectiveness of energy conservation. In order to implement paperless office, online signing of official document is promoted to reduce paper used for printing.
Reduction of energy consumption during transportation and waste in Animal Industry Business Division Pigs from all pig farms are sent to the neighboring livestock markets for auction to reduce energy consumption during transportation. For example, pigs from Pingtung Pig Farm are transported to the meat market in the neighboring areas of Gangshan, Cishan and Kaohsiung to reduce energy consumption during transportation. 
Unified warehouse logistics and introduction of new ERP system Marketing Business Division has fully entrusted a third-party logistics and delivery service provider for regular (low) temperature delivery. Through the    unified warehouse logistic and delivery and with the introduction of new ERP system, the business operation can be more effective and the impact of traffic can also be reduced.
Energy saving measures in Petroleum Business Division The total electricity consumption was 3,365,282 kWh in 2017, 2,903,911 kWh in 2018, showing a reduction of 461,371 kWh. All the lighting equipment in the 73 gas stations of the Petroleum Business Division was all replaced by LED lamps.
Energy saving measures in Leisure Business Division Evergreen Plaza Hotel invested NTD 2,880,000 for the construction of green energy project and installed a solar power generation equipment with the capacity of 51.3 KW, generating 56,729 kWh of electricity.
Sugar Business Division 1. Improvement project of the compressed air pipeline leakage was conducted, reducing electricity consumption by 277,200 kWh.
2. Cleaning the energy-saving equipment of furnace (ECO, GAH), saving 271.38 m3 of fuel oil.
3. Solar power generation, reduced electricity purchase by 203,728 kWh.
Biotechnology Business Division 1. Connecting the loop pipelines of process air end of the air pressure system to reduce the load of the air compressor, saving 27,720 kWh of electricity.
2. Replaced lighting with LED ones, saving 25,200 kwh of electricity.
 

      Energy Conservation Technology Service Group is divided into four teams based on their tasks, including the "Audit and Coordination Team, Manufacturing Process Team, Power Energy Team and Thermal Energy Team. In addition to providing the latest energy-saving technology, the Service Group also promotes the Green Energy (solar and biogas power generation) Policy. The total energy saved by means of the energy saving measures was 57,031.6GJ (3,643.7 kiloliters of oil equivalent), with an energy saving benefits of NTD 65.586 million, reducing 10,300.9 metric tons of CO2e.
 


Greenhouse Gas Inventory

      In 2018, the overall GHG emission was increased by 11.80% compared with 2017. The GHG emission intensity was 19.47 (tons of CO2e/ NTD million of revenue), a 19.08% increase compared with 2017. This is mainly because of the increased efficiency brought by the repair of equipment in Gangshan and Kanting Reuse Incineration Plants, leading to increasing amount of waste treatment and GHG emissions, and the revenues also increased, showing the condition of reduced of overall revenues but increased emission intensity in the whole company. The total GHG emission amount and emission intensity of TSC and its affiliations is shown below.



Green Meetings

      TSC continues to promote the use of video conference to replace physical meetings not only to reduce time and cost for long-distance travel and to increase work efficiency, but also to achieve the benefits of energy conservation and carbon reduction. Based on the assumption of “one person/per business division”, there were a total of 471 video conferences held in 2018 (176 more compared with 2017), and the calculated traveling distance saved (round-trip) was 446,114 km, saving NTD 1,490,178 of travel expenses (calculated by the fare of Tze-Chiang Train); in addition, according to the EPA’s carbon footprint calculation service platform, the carbon footprint coefficient of a small passenger car (petrol) was 0.115 (KgCO2e/passenger-kilometer), and the GHG emission generated from the small passenger cars used for carrying passengers, including emissions from the fuel production, distribution and vehicle consumption was reduced by 51,303.11Kg of CO2e.
