USI with Environment
Climate Change Mitigation
Global warming and climate change are now very important issues of sustainable development. Being a corporation that is willing to do its part as a world citizen for sustainable development, USI will pay close attention to the trend of climate change in the world and how other countries cope with it. Additionally, it will continue to analyze and control the issue to pursue the sustainable development of the environment and the corporation.
USI continues launch greenhouse gas reduction policy. The greenhouse gas emission inventory check was performed in 2007 according to ISO14064-1. The total CO2 emissions in 2017 were 157,333.56 tonnes, if analyzing by revenue, the CO2 emissions per million RMB at revenue were 5.3 tonnes, a decrease of 0.56 tonnes (a 10% drop) from the base year (2015).
The key to reduce carbon emission is to save energy and maximize the use of electricity. The total energy consumption of 2017 was 758,413.08 GJ, in terms of revenue analysis, the energy consumption per million RMB revenue was 26.11 GJ, a decrease of 3.03 GJ from the base year (a 10% drop).
Energy Saving Results
In 2017, there were 8 energy-saving projects and, for Eco-design, 7 energy-efficient products that have saved a total of 7,148 kWh of electricity and reduced 5,109 tonnes of CO2 emissions, equal to the carbon absorption of 19.5 Da'an Forest Park per year.
In order to respond to the use of renewable energy source, USI have purchased International REC (I-REC), a total of 166,625 KWh, in 2018 as the offset against 2017 CO2 emission caused by traditional electricity system in all of the facilities in China (Zhangjiang, Jinqiao, Shenzhen, and Kunshan) and, in accordance with the quantitative rule of "GHG Protocol Scope 2 Guidance", as the statement for market-based method offset in scope 2.
