In 2023, the United Nations convened the 28th Conference of the Parties (COP28) on climate change, with goals that not only aspire to limit global warming to within 1.5 degrees Celsius through international negotiations but also to review the nationally determined contributions and carbon reduction progress made since the 2015 Paris Agreement. Furthermore, the conference aimed to encourage countries to make more proactive and ambitious commitments and actions.

The Taiwanese government has also responded to international climate change issues by amending laws to incorporate the net-zero emissions target by 2050, along with issuing policies and regulatory measures. In line with government policy and to leverage the positive impact of the financial market, our company has set a goal for net-zero emissions in scopes 1 and 2 by 2030, mapping out a series of proactive actions to promote greenhouse gas reduction measures and continuously implement concrete ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) plans.
