Climate Change

Global Climate and Greenhouse Gas Inventory 

The greenhouse gas report contains information on the sources of emission and the absorption of six types of greenhouse gas, CO2, methane, nitrous oxide, PFC, HFC, and SF6, as stated in The Greenhouse Gas Protocol. MiTAC gathers information on the identification of the sources of emission and related data and conducts an inventory once a year. The inspection result is primarily 90% to 96% of outsourced power. Furthermore, we also participate in the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) each year to support strategic actions, care for and mitigate climate change.


Internal Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventory

  • The scope of carbon audit encompasses the Taiwan operating and R&D center and China major production locations: MSL in Guangdong/MKL in Jiangsu; MiTACIS assembly plant in California, USA: MiTACIS, where carbon emissions are audited.
  • Scope 3 has been included as of 2018: Including employee business trips and China production bases: the shipping carbon emissions of the MSL Plant in Guangdong.


Carbon Emission and Intensity

  • High energy intensity suggests a higher energy-to-revenue cost. Due to the operational model change and revenue drop, the 2018 energy intensity rose.
  • Scope 3 was included in 2018: Including the employee business trips of worldwide locations and China production bases: the shipping carbon emissions of the MSL Plant in Guangdong.


Internal Power Consumption and Intensity


Water Resource

MiTAC's water consumption at production locations worldwide consists of mainly service water (approx. 95%). Most of the water is tap water, no ground water is used. A water audit is conducted and various water-saving measures are implemented using water intensity ( km3/US$ 1 million of output) as the observation indicator in order to respond to water resource risks caused by climate change in advance.


Water resource policy:  

  • Collaborate with regional authorities and utilities companies to coordinate water resource deployment.
  • Identify short-term and long-term water resource risks.
  • Stipulate water conservation targets for various plants to conserve water.
