Carbon Strategy

 

The responding strategy of climate change issues and a company’s long term business positioning are closely related. In order to reduce climate related cost and risk in value chain and evaluate the result of voluntary carbon reduction measures, Chunghwa Telecom initiated “Greenhouse Gas Measurement Project” in 2008 to carry out on-site verification on major emission sources such as telecom equipment, vehicle fuel and motorcycle fuel. A total of 500 manpower efforts were contributed and 2 months were spent to complete the project.

 

Comprehensive Greenhouse Gas Measurement

With the company overall covered in the scope of measurement control, we are proud to have the most comprehensive Greenhouse Gas Measurement in the industry. Under the guidance of “Greenhouse Gas Measurement Promotion Team, we will conduct group-wide “Greenhouse Gas Measurement and Verification Operation” annually.

 The Executive Vice President convened “Greenhouse Gas Measurement Promotion Team” which covering northern branch (including 8 branch office), southern branch (including 9 branch office), mobile communication branch (including 3 branch office), corporate consumer branch, international telecom branch, digital communication branch, Chunghwa Telecom Laboratories and Telecommunication Training Institute (including 2 branches) to conduct Greenhouse Gas Measurement operation.

The responding strategy of climate change issues and a company’s long term business positioning is closely related. In order to reduce climate related cost and risk in value chain and evaluate the result of voluntary carbon reduction measures, Chunghwa Telecom initiated “Greenhouse Gas Inventory” in 2008. Chunghwa Telecom’s initial carbon management goals were to “reduce greenhouse gas emission to 2007 levels by 2012,” which it had achieved ahead of schedule in 2011 due to proper control. Assuming an annual growth of 2% for 4G and mobile communication services, the Company will inevitably be required to install additional communication equipment, which consume more power and emit more greenhouse gases. In view of this development, we have revised and set a new greenhouse gas target in 2013, which is to:
