Environmental Aspect

In the face of global warming and in response to the issue of climate change, the Bank has fulfilled its corporate social responsibility, implemented the environmental policy of “healthy living, eco-friendliness and love for our planet”, and continued to promote energy conservation and carbon reduction, waste reduction, resource management, and green buildings to mitigate the impact of climate change and achieve the goal of environmentally sustainable management.
Environmental policy
The Bank’s Environmental Performance in Recent Years
In response to climate change, the Bank has been implementing sorting of waste, recycling, and energy conservation and carbon reduction measures since before the Paris Agreement, and continues to make use of environmentally friendly products such as green building materials, recycled paper and water-saving or power-saving equipment to reduce impact on the environment. In 2018, the Bank did not commit any violations of environmental regulations.

Implementation
Review
The Bank promoted the environmental policy of “healthy living, eco-friendliness and love for our planet”, implemented various resource and energy conservation measures as well as greenhouse gas reduction strategies, and actively introduced various international management systems to achieve the goal of carbon emission reduction.
The Bank’s greenhouse gas emission sources are mainly electricity consumption. To promote a low-carbon environment, the General Affairs Division is responsible for establishing specific goals, practices, and programs for energy conservation and carbon reduction; regularly reviewing environmental protection issues; and continuously promoting improvement measures to achieve greenhouse gas reduction goals.
Record the consumption information of the various resources (water, electricity, fuel, natural gas, etc.) and wastes monthly. When there is non-compliance with or deviation from the environmental management requirements, corrective measures are taken in a timely and effective manner to reduce environmental impact. In addition, environmental impact is identified and evaluated regularly, and follow-ups conducted by listing the improvement goals and management programs. Furthermore, the greenhouse gas emission inventory is conducted every year to examine the reduction situation and increase management measures.
Key Accomplishments in 2018
Key Accomplishments in 2018
We highlight a selection of our material Issues below.
1. Management of Energy and Resource Consumption
2. Greenhouse Gas Emissions
3. Supply Chain Environment Management
**********************************************************************
1. Management of Energy and Resource Consumption
1.1 Goals
The Bank follows relevant laws, regulations and international standards to gradually establish an environmental and energy management system. Through ISO management operational procedures, the Bank has established documents and record systematization measures; regularly reviewed environmental issues; continuously promoted improvement plans; and set the goal of 1% water consumption reduction, 1% electricity consumption reduction, and the reduction of carbon emissions by more than 33,000 - 60,000 kgCO2e every year. In 2018, the annual certification for ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System and ISO 50001: 2011 Energy Management System was completed.
1.2 Energy Conservation and Carbon Reduction Plan
The Bank takes active measures to reduce energy consumption, and continues to promote energy conservation plans and daily management to avoid energy waste. The Bank implements its energy policy of “continuously improving energy performance and maximizing value of energy”, “observing energy management regulations and promoting energy conservation concepts”, “supporting the procurement of energy-saving products and building an energy-saving environment”, and “continuously investing necessary resources and achieving goals and indicators”. In addition, the Bank supported CITY FM’s “Under the Moonlight” initiative of turning off the lights during Mid-autumn Festival, as to promote the concept of energy conservation and carbon reduction, and contribute to global environmental protection.
The Bank’s energy conservation and carbon reduction measures are as follows:
water resource reduction  Energy conservation
Fuel energy conservation
1.3 Energy Consumption and Intensity
1.3-1 Carbon Reduction Results
In order to achieve the goal of developing a sustainable environment, the Bank has adopted various energy conservation, carbon reduction and environmental protection management measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and waste of resources. In 2018, taking the head office in Taipei as example, the overall carbon emissions were reduced by 40,219.13 kg CO2e, a decrease of 2.40% compared with 2017, reaching the Bank's carbon reduction goal. The implementation results are as follows:
Carbon reduction

2. Greenhouse Gas Emissions
2.1 Greenhouse Gas Inventory Scopes
Taking 2017 as the base year, the Bank initiated greenhouse gas inventory operations voluntarily, and completed the inventory of greenhouse gas emissions for Scope 1 and Scope 2. In 2018, Scope 3 greenhouse gas emission inventory was added, and the energy conservation and carbon reduction plan was continuously established to improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emission intensity.
Scope 1
Direct greenhouse gas emissions: Including stationary combustion emission sources, mobile combustion emission sources, process emission sources, and fugitive emission sources.
Scope 2
Indirect greenhouse gas emissions from energy: Indirect emission energy sources.
Scope 3
Fuel and energy related activities (excluding Scope 1 or 2).

Note:
1. Scope 1 emissions are mainly fuel consumption of company vehicles, diesel for generators, gas, CO2 fire extinguishers, and refrigerant filled in air conditioners, water dispensers, and refrigerators.
2. Scope 2 emissions are mainly power consumption.
3. In Scope 3, fuel and energy-related activities excluding Scope 1 and Scope 2 are calculated based on the 2018 fuel and energy-related activity data multiplied by the life cycle emission factor announced by the Environmental Protection Administration minus the combustion emission factor.
4. The increase in carbon emissions in 2018 (Scope 1 + Category 2) is due to the increase in the electricity and fuel factor from 0.529 to 0.554.
5. The choice of emission factor is based on the greenhouse gas emission factor management table of the Environmental Protection Administration, Executive Yuan (version 6.0.3 dated January, 2017). The GWP value used is also based on version 6.0.3 of the greenhouse gas emission factor management table in the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report.

3. Supply Chain Environment Management
3.1 Supply Chain Management Mechanism
To promote the balance of economic, social and environmental spheres and sustainable development, in addition to actively fulfilling its own corporate social responsibility, the Bank also promotes such practices among its suppliers by devising the Supplier Corporate Social Responsibility Policy, which provides advocacy on several issues, including corporate social responsibility, protection of employee rights and interests (including human rights protection, prohibition against forced labor and child labor, and encouragement of freedom of association) as well as environmental protection (including GHG inventory and setting of carbon reduction goals). For a single transaction amount of more than NT$1 million, the Bank also requests suppliers to sign a declaration to abide by such Policy. The Bank hopes to work together with suppliers to implement corporate social responsibility.
** In 2018, a total of 69 suppliers signed the Supplier Social Responsibility Declaration with the Bank, a signing rate of 100%.  
** From time to time, the Bank randomly checked the corporate social responsibility implementation status of signees and found no violations.
