Environmental Protection Management
According to TTY Biopharm's environmental protection management approach, all operational activities must give priority to environmental sustainability. As a leading manufacturer in the pharmaceutical industry, we realize that good health relies heavily on a healthy environment, including clean air and water, as well as proper waste disposal. In this manner, the impact of climate change on human health is bound to decline gradually.
When purchasing and using raw materials, we strive to save resources in order to prevent damage to the environment. According to the Company's commitment to sustainable development, and based on the precautionary principle, TTY Biopharm's responsibility is to do our utmost to eliminate environmental risks. TTY Biopharm's suppliers are required to comply with TTY Biopharm's Supplier Code of Conduct.
TTY complies with Bureau of Energy's "Energy Conservation Goals and Implementation Plans Set for Energy Users", the industrial power heavy users must achieve an average energy conservation rate of 1% within five years since May 2015. The specific measures are taken in accordance with international environmental standards, including ISO 14001, ISO 50001, and ISO 14064-1 as our management approach and compliance specifications for various energy conservation and carbon reduction measures.
After years of hard work, we have obtained the exciting results below:
We proactively disclose transparent information on air emissions, and the main type of emissions are greenhouse gases (GHG). GHG is the main culprit to climate change. With 2015 as the base year, TTY Biopharm has achieved amazing results, where GHG emission intensity was reduced total 16.7%, and decreased of 3.8% compared with 2018.
In year 2020, even the five energy-saving measures formed at both the Lioudu and Chungli factories have conserved 85,936.5 kWh of electricity. CO2 emissions volume has decreased by 47,608.8 kgCO2e, but with the impact of COVID-19, the inventory increased and orders from local and international buyers dropped, it still resulting in an increase in energy intensity and GHG emission intensity from the previous reporting period.
All effluent is within the Water Pollution Control Act, Local Government Act. The water consumption intensity and wastewater discharge intensity has remained at the same level as the previous reporting period, thanks to the daily improvement in manufacturing processes and sewage treatment. In the future, the overall water saving policy will further expand to systematic water management.
In compliance with the relevant environmental law and international guidelines, TTY takes the initiative when it comes to environmental conservation and has worked with every possibility to minimize ecological impact in the manufacturing process. In year 2020, there was no significant fine for the violation of related laws; besides, all activities and business including operation and interior management of all TTY departments and sites should be conducted to fulfill sustainable environmental goals. Dedicated EM departments or personnel are to designate, facilitate and maintain EM systems and action plans such as proper water consumption, recycling, and related measures to enhance water usage efficiency. Meanwhile, monitor the climate changes’ impact on operational activities, policies and strategies were promoted to decrease carbon footprints and GHG emissions.
For our work crew, periodical environmental education focuses on the idea of being a sustainable consumer and going for the following 5 targets to build a good corporate constitution in environmental friendliness.
1. Reduction of the consumption of resources and energy on product manufacturing
2. Reduction of the discharge of effluents, toxic substances, and wastes
3. Proper waste disposal
4. The recycling and reuse rate of raw materials and products
5. Extend efficacy of product performance and durability
