Yuanta is highly aware of the impact climate change has on the economic, financial, and legal environment. As such, in addition to diversifying our operations and developing new businesses based on our existing niches, we also adjust our operating procedures, business strategy, and investment decisions as necessary. On top of this, through education and training, we raise our employees' understanding of climate risk and improve their ability to adapt accordingly, reducing potential operating risks to the company while also continuing to strive for environmental sustainability.
Yuanta has in recent years actively implemented three ISO systems across the Group through the Center for the Promotion of Corporate Social Responsibility’s environmental sustainability team. Yuanta started with the ISO 14001 implementation in the Yuanta Financial Holdings Building in 2015, and in 2019 the scope of ISO 14001 certification expanded to include all headquarter locations of Yuanta FHC and its subsidiaries, covering 2004 employees. Yuanta completed the inventories of greenhouse gas emissions of all Yuanta operating locations at the end of 2017 with all locations passing the ISO 14064-1 Greenhouse Gas Inventory verification in April 2018. In addition, Yuanta FHC, Yuanta Bank, Yuanta Securities, Yuanta Funds, and Yuanta Securities have gradually implemented and received certification for ISO 50001 Energy Management in 2018 at Yuanta-owned locations, aiming to receive certification for all Yuanta-owned locations across Taiwan by 2021.

Yuanta continues to promote a variety of measures to reduce our environmental impacts and move toward establishing a green corporate culture. In addition to creating a green and friendly workplace, we are also working to encourage customers, employees, and their families to get involved in green initiatives and work together to achieve the goals of environmental sustainability. To promote and manage environmental issues within the Group, Yuanta started ISO 14001 Environmental Management System implementation in November 2015, beginning with Yuanta FHC. The Yuanta Financial Building and Datong Building passed verification in March 2016. The implementation expanded to include Yuanta Life location on the 16th through 18th floors of Hongtai Building in January 2017. In February 2019, Yuanta Financial Holdings and its 9 subsidiaries all have implemented the system and passed the verification, with a 100% coverage rate. Yuanta will continue to maintain the system operational and strive to pass verification.

Yuanta began to implement the ISO 14064-1 Greenhouse Gas Inventory System in 2015, with subsidiaries Yuanta Securities and Yuanta Funds passing certification in May and September of 2016 respectively. In 2019, we undertook ISO/FDIS 14064-1:2018 inventory of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and Yuanta Financial Holdings and our subsidiaries passed certification with a 100% coverage rate. In the future, we will continue to conduct GHG inventory every year in order to grasp the actual effectiveness of our Company’s energy saving and carbon reduction.
