Commitment to Net Zero Emissions
Committed to Achieving the Goal of “Net Zero by 2050”

In order to limit global warming to 1.5°C of the Paris Agreement, the UN has pledged to achieve “Net Zero Emissions by 2050” since 2019. In the face of the global climate issues, SYSTEX also promises to achieve Net Zero Emissions by 2050, and follow the “Science Based Targets initiative”, hoping to become a model for Taiwan’s IT service industry to mitigate climate change through the following carbon reduction paths.

SYSTEX has pledged to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions of Scope 1, 2, and 3 by 2050 compared to the greenhouse gas emissions in the base year 2020.

GHG Emission Reduction Actions

Through conducting the ISO 14064-1 GHG inventory, SYSTEX found that the GHG emissions of Scope 2 accounted for the highest proportion, exceeding 80%. Therefore, SYSTEX regards energy carbon emission management and reduction as the top priority to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.

  • Energy-saving  measures:
    SYSTEX purchases and rents equipment with environmentally-friendly labels, replaces power-consuming equipment every year, regularly checks pipelines, and sets the office temperature to no less than 26° C, thereby reducing electricity consumption and environmental load.
    For more details about the energy-saving measures, please refer to “Environment & Energy Management“.
  • Renewable energy consumption:
    SYSTEX supports the development of renewable energy, signed “Power Wheeling Contracts” in 2022 and is expected to use green energy in 2023. In addition, SYSTEX also reset the short-term, medium-term and long-term targets for renewable energy consumption in 2023, setting the targets for renewable energy consumption 8% in 2024,  renewable energy consumption 20% in 2024, and renewable energy consumption 100% in 2050.
    For more details about the renewable energy consumption, please refer to “Environment & Energy Management“.
  • Carbon offset mechanism:
    SYSTEX intends to neutralize residual emissions by 2050 through purchasing carbon credits in line with the global net-zero standards and regulaions.
Targets of Net Zero Emissions and Performance
Environmental Sustainability Policy

In the face of global climate disasters causing issues such as climate change, reduction of natural resources and biodiversity loss, people and organizations around the world are impacted to varying degrees. The climate crisis threatens the survival and development of human beings, and raises the awareness of global environmental protection. For truly understanding potential impacts of extreme weather on operations, SYSTEX has formulated the “SYSTEX OHS., Environment and Energy Policy and Declaration”, continuously implements environmental related mechanisms, and conducts 3 environmental verification every year: ISO 14001, ISO 1464-1, and ISO 50001, to effectively manage performance and reduce negative impacts.

Environmental Sustainability Management Mechanism

Through the continuous operation management mechanism, SYSTEX formulated the corresponding actions for possible natural disasters, fires, typhoons and power interruptions, etc., to ensure that operations can be resumed quickly while disasters occur. The “SYSTEX OHS., Environmental and Energy Policy” is based on 3 environmental verifications to implement 5 action plans of “Net Zero Emissions, Green Procurement, Training, Technology Application, and Regulatory Compliance”, so as to achieve carbon reduction targets.

Action Plans
Actions Performance
Net Zero Emissions Improve the management system to ensure the effectiveness of continuous operation and plan the carbon reduction path to move towards the goal of “Net Zero by 2050”. Continuously conduct verifications and obtain ISO 14001, ISO 14064-1 and ISO 50001, and operate management system effectively.
Green Procurement Strengthen green procurement to make suppliers comply with the green trends and jointly realize environmental protection. Purchase green products first in general category of procurement and was rewarded the “Green Procurement Enterprises” by the EPA and Taipei City Government.
Tech-application Continuously develop digital system services and applications to build a low-carbon industrial ecosystem with paperless operations. In 2022, a total of 9 activities for green energy promotion were held, with a total of 341 participants (in-class: 151, online: 190).
Training Conduct internal training to raise awareness about environmental and OHS, to ensure employees health and safety, and prevent diseases or workplace hazards. A total of 11 in-class courses were held in 2022, with a total of 693 participants, 1039.5 hours, and a training rate of 100%.
Regulatory Compliance Comply with government regulations for environmental protection and respond to government energy conservation policies. In 2022, no violations of environmental laws and regulations occurred.
