Energy Conservation and Carbon & Waste 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), 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
  • The insulation improvement in the greenhouse in Puli Farm saved 700 liters of diesel consumption.
  • The improvement of cooling water wall in the greenhouse in Dalin Farm saved approximately 12.9 thousand kWh.
  • The improvement of A/C equipment for electricity conservation saved 59,000 kWh in the Flask Room of the seedling field of Wushulin Recreation Park.
  • The renewal of the inner furnace body of the heating boiler in Taitung Farm saved diesel consumption by 3,600 liters.
  • The replacement of lighting to LED lighting in the offices in the business departments saved approximately 14.5 thousand kWh of electricity.
Reduction of energy consumption during transportation and waste reduction in Animal Industry Business Division Pigs from all pig farms are sent to the neighboring livestock markets for auction. 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 efficient, and the impact of traffic can also be reduced.
Energy saving measures in Petroleum Business Division The total electricity consumption was 2,923,035 kWh in 2019, a reduction of 51,357 kWh compared with the 2,974,392 kWh in 2018. Relevant energy saving measures are as follows.
1. All the lighting equipment in the 73 gas stations of the Petroleum Business Division was all replaced by LED lamps.
2. Reduced the number of lamps in the halls and restrooms of the gas stations and installed sensors, and the habit of turning off the power is also encouraged and promoted.
3. The A/C equipment is set to be turned on when the room temperature in the business offices is above 28oC. Fans are used instead of A/C to reduce the use of air conditioning.
4. We cooperate with the government’s energy-saving and carbon-reducing polity to shorten the lighting duration of the vertical and horizontal signboards at the gas stations.
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 54,152 kWh of electricity.
Sugar Business Division 1. Cleaning the energy-saving equipment of furnace (ECO, GAH), saving 299 m3 of fuel oil.
2. Solar power generation, reduced electricity purchase by 50,994 kWh.
Biotechnology Business Division 1. Installed rooftop solar power generation equipment with the capacity of 671 kwp (factory area and dormitory), generating 512,790 kWh of electricity in 2019.
2. Replaced 100 units of lighting with LED ones, saving 7,000 kwh of electricity.

Greenhouse Gas Inventory

      In 2019, the overall GHG emission was 596,095.94 tons of CO2e, increased by 2.70% compared with 2018. The GHG emission intensity was 0.023 (tons of CO2e/ NTD thousand of revenue), a 15.92% increase compared with 2018. This is mainly because of the increased efficiency brought by the repair of equipment in Gangshan Reuse Incineration Plants, leading to increasing amount of waste treatment and GHG emissions, showing the condition of reduced 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 413 video conferences held in 2019, and the calculated traveling distance saved (round-trip) was 389,825 km, saving NTD 1,304,402 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 0.115KgCO2e/passenger-kilometer (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 44,829.88 Kg of CO2e.
