Climate Change and Energy Management

In response to climate change and the implementation of green operations, since 2011, Phison has been conducting an annual GHG emissions inventory through the Environmental Protection Administration of the Executive Yuan with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol tool provided by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) of the United Nations. And through our various energy savings programs, we continue to work towards our objective of GHG reduction.
In 2020, we produced 9406.27 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e). Scope 1 emissions are direct emissions, which comprised 1.69% of our total GHG emissions; Scope 2 emissions are emissions from electricity purchased from third parties, which comprised 98.31% of our total GHG emissions. Compared to 2019, our total emissions increased by 486.78 metric tons in 2020 due to an increased amount of purchased electricity; our emissions intensity in 2020 was 0.194 metric tons of CO2e per million dollars of revenue, a decrease of 2.81% compared to 2019.
The company plans to disclose risks and opportunities related to climate change in accordance with the TCFD framework in 2022, linking climate risks to corporate governance and strengthening the disclosure of the sustainability report.

Greenhouse Gas Management

Note: The electricity emissions factor was calculated using the electricity emissions factor of the local power supplier; the global warming potential was quoted from the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Statistics of Energy Consumption

To review and improve our efficiency on the use of energy, Phison conducts an annual energy use inventory on the fuels we used, including petroleum, diesel, and electricity. In 2020, Phison's total energy consumption was 65,405 GJ, and our energy use intensity was 1.349 GJ per million dollars of revenue. Compared to 2019, our energy use intensity has decreased by 2.88%
