Waste Management

      In order to effectively control business waste generated by each business division. The Company has formulated the “Key Points for the Application of Business Waste Online Reporting and Tracking Management”. TSC cleans up, disposes or reuses waste in accordance with environmental regulations and regularly files related reports through Internet transmission. In addition, the Company also inquires and confirms the removal, disposal and reuse of the business waste within the specified time limit to avoid penalties for non-compliance.



Reducing the Output of Waste

      In the recycling ratio of waste resource in 2018 reached 88.69%, decreased by 0.03% compared with 2017, this was mainly because of the reduced production of sugarcane and hogs resulted in the reduced processing volume of bagasse and pig manure residues, causing the recycle ratio to reduce. Although the overall recycle ratio was reduced, it still shows our efforts in waste recycling, stabilization, harmlessness and economization.

Marketing Business Division and Biotechnology Business Division The new product packaging design of the Marketing Business Division is in line with the policy of limiting over-packaging of products announced by the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA), Executive Yuan, to reduce the use of packaging materials and generation of waste, easing off the environmental load.
