The global warming effect has intensified in recent years, and the extreme climate has led to the spread of natural disasters around the world. Significant environmental impacts caused by climate change have become a serious challenge to sustainable business operations. Out of the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set out by the United Nations, six are directly related to the environment. Although financial industry operations are not directly impacted by climate change, they may be indirectly affected by the impact on customer operations.
The financial industry has less environmental impact than other industries. Energy consumption and relative greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from our operating bases are the main source of our impact. Therefore, proactive and proper management is the only way to balance business and environmental sustainability. Yuanta Financial Holding Company (FHC) has an “Environmental Policy” and an “Energy and Climate Change Management Policy.” In order to strengthen environmental sustainability management, we continue to promote various measures to reduce environmental impacts and strive to establish a corporate green culture, and hope to influence our customers and employees’ families to participate in green actions together to achieve the goal of environmental sustainability.Environmental Policy Energy and Climate Change Management Policy
