Sustainability

From design, manufacture, transportation, to service,
We proactively promote sustainability programs
To achieve emissions and waste reduction and minimize environmental impacts.

CLC uses recovered paper as the major material and is Taiwan’s largest recovered paper utilizing company. From product design, manufacture, and delivery to customers, CLC cherishes resources and is committed to reducing environmental impacts at all stages, and is amongst the first few enterprises in Taiwan to implement the ISO 14000 environmental management system.
Through manufacturing improvement and the integrated application of energy and resources, we reduce raw material utilization, enhance efficiency, and inconstantly invest in high-performance pollution control equipment to reduce pollutant emissions. At the same time, by proactively operating the environmental management, GHG management, and energy management systems, promoting relevant improvement programs, and by continuously investing resources in development green products, we create sustainable corporate value.

In 2018, the amount of investment in and expenditure on environment protection was NT$1.72 billion. The major distribution of expenditure was air pollution control 20%, water pollution prevention 23%, waste disposal 38%, and prevention and environmental management costs 19%.
