Energy Consumption

Environmental Friendly

Although our production bases are in different countries, they are consistent in the management of greenhouse gas emissions and energy. We have formulated the "Energy Management Policy" and the "Greenhouse Gas Inventory Declaration" as the highest guidelines for greenhouse gas and energy management. In response to the trend of energy conservation and carbon reduction in response to climate change, AcBel has organized an energy conservation plan - "Sustainable Green Energy 2020." The implementation period was set for 2015 to 2020, the target is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, domestic water use, and hazardous waste output by 2% each year from the previous year. Each year, the energy saving goals and action plans are drawn up accordingly, and a “Social Responsibility Management Committee” will be organized independently by each plant. Based on the needs of each management system, it is confirmed through the PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Action) cycle to arrange internal inspection and management review operations. The effectiveness of the implementation and continuous improvement will also be adopted as the next year's goal formulation and management actions.

Energy Consumption

The company consumes different forms of energy sources, which comes from outsourcing non-renewable energy sources, including electricity, fuel (gas, diesel, natural gas), etc. The greenhouse gas survey shows that electricity takes up 91.91% of the total, followed by liquefied petroleum gas at 4.74% and diesel at 1.50%. Main consumptions are office area air-conditioning, product manufacturing, vehicles fuel, factory restaurants and staff accommodation (Dongguan, Wuhan 2 factory provides staff accommodation), etc.
The company adopts lead-free materials from product design to manufacturing. It also prioritizes the use of environmentally-friendly labels for equipment procurement to ensure that no ozone depleting substances (ODS) are generated and that impacts to the natural system are avoided, including air, water and ecosystems.

GHG Emissions Management

For greenhouse gas management, in addition to the company's establishment of its own goals and the implementation of active plans, we’ve also interrogated greenhouse gas emissions through the ISO 14064. After analysing and understanding the company's operating process GHG emissions, we’ve identified all possibilities for energy conservation and improvement, effectively managing the company's annual emissions and setting reduction targets that abide to laws, regulations and customer requirements.

Water Resource Management

Because the company's production process does not result in industrial wastewater, all wastewater accounts for domestic wastewater. China's factory sites are equipped with rain and sewage diversion pipelines to connect the sewage pipelines to government sewers to reduce environmental pollution.
However, to ensure that wastewater does not pollute the environment, we regularly sample and test at the outlets to ensure that the emission standards are 100% compliant with regulations. In 2017, there were no violations of wastewater treatment incidents and environmental protection laws. We've also installed environmental protection and water-saving facilities to collaborate with staff education and training to increase water-saving effectiveness and reduce wastewater discharge.
