Care for Environment, Sustainable Recycling
Getac has set the Company's environmental policy with the goal of “Care for Environment, Sustainable Recycling”, clearly set for cherishing the earth's resources, complying with national environmental laws and regulations. Getac is committed to promoting green production, fulfilling our responsibility to protect the earth, through standard operation procedures; we include water resources management, energy management, waste water, waste, and air pollution prevention in our daily management.

All Getac's factories scrupulously abide by the environmental laws and regulations of the plant locations, and all factories have obtained the environmental management system certification of ISO14001 or the same level, and all plants have completed the new version certification of ISO14001:2015 at the end of 2019.
 
Energy Saving And Carbon Reduction
We began by promoting energy conservation and carbon reduction in our manufacturing processes. In 2018, Getac's plants consumed a total of 800,530 GJ.  The Getac Plastic Business Group specializes in the development of diversified process and new material applications. The Getac Technology R&D team exclusively developed a “Green Molding” technology by relying on its profound experience in plastic molding accumulated over many years. A series of experiments wereconducted, and the plant was remodeled. The team explored how to reduce heat dissipation and energy consumption of injection molding equipment and thereby decrease workshop temperatures and air conditioning energy consumption. In 2019, Green Molding technology generated energy savings of 4,453 MWh.

Water Resource Management
The 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda passed by the United Nations will also set the: “Ensure that all people have access to water and health facilities of sustainable management.” as the key agenda. Based on a philosophy of cherishing global resources, Getac is firmly determined to use every drop of water to maximum effect.  Getac continues to invest in process water recycling equipment to conserve water resources  and ensure constant recycling and reuse. Water reclamation performance is reviewed on a regular basis. In 2019, the total quantity of reclaimed water reached 17,096 million liters. Reclaimed water accounted for around 97% of the total water consumption.
