Sustainable Manufacturing

ASEH applies its four major sustainable manufacturing principles and the key concept of “doing more with less” to improve the value of products to customers and reduce the impact to the environment. Hazardous substance management is a crucial aspect within a sustainable manufacturing process, and we are managing it through the optimization of the green product management system (GPMS), establishing of substance databases, and compliance with the EU RoHS Directive, REACH regulations, Energy Star and the Energy-related Products (ErP) directives, in addition to customer requirements. On top of formulating hazardous substance guidelines and ecological product designs, our management of such standards are much stricter than prevailing laws and regulations.

We increased control measures for chemicals that cause health hazards and increase environmental load risks, including bioaccumulation, persistent pollutants, and materials that are carcinogenic, mutagenic and the Energy-related Products (ErP) directives, in addition to customer requirements. On top of formulating hazardous substance guidelines and ecological product designs, our management of such standards are much stricter than prevailing laws and regulations.
We increased control measures for chemicals that cause health hazards and increase environmental load risks, including bioaccumulation, persistent pollutants, and materials that are carcinogenic, mutagenic and toxicity to reproduction. In addition to regulating the chemical substances in products, any newly introduced chemical material during the manufacturing process that falls within the scope of customer restrictions or the EU REACH Restricted Substances List will be entirely prohibited for use and further to promote replacement plans for existing substances. We also continue to cooperate with the competent authorities, academic experts and scholars to obtain more technical resources and applications to overcome bottlenecks in the R&D process, and gradually eliminate environmentally hazardous chemicals in the manufacturing process of ASE Technology Holding. At the same time, ASE Kaohsiung also won two awards in the 2nd Green Chemistry Application and Innovation Awards in 2021, gradually realizing the vision of sustainability and implementing the management mechanism, providing employees with a safe and healthy environment to work with peace of mind, and moving towards the goal of green industry.
