Achieving the goal of sustainable development and taking social responsibility are the commitments that Tatung Co. takes in since 1918. In the light of financial tsunami in recent period, we have committed ourselves to seek stable growth. Global warming and climate change has become two topics that mostly concerned around the world. The society, government, customers all expect companies to conserve the energies and cut off greenhouse gas emission.

We started to work out greenhouse gas emission inventory within the factories and subsidiaries since 2009. As the more information we have gathered in hands, the clearer we know where we can reduce the greenhouse emission. We also focus on expanding our energy-saving design on the products and developing green energy products and services. For example the products acquired green mark and energy label, LED parts and products, solar energy wafers, film/single/multi crystal solar energy module, raw materials for C-LiFePO4 batteries and energy saving system. With both operation approach and product/service approach, we can reduce greenhouse gas emission and thus lower the impact to the environment.

Looking towards the future, we will continue to carry on our founder’s operational ideas of “integrity, honesty, industry and frugality” to provide high quality products and services. We will take corporate social responsibility into the operation and achieve the goal of sustainability in the near future.
