In 2020, key talent accounted for around 3.8% of the Company’s workforce. 61% of this talent pool has been promoted within the last two years. 473 individuals have been promoted or transferred internally
Education in Remote Areas and for Disadvantaged Groups
In 2020, the project reached 209 schools in 11 counties and cities; 11,087 students and 1,000 teachers benefited from it
Renewable energy installations
TECO installs solar power plants on the rooftops of its plants. Annual power generation of 6.42 GWh Dynamometer is an equipment for testing a motor's torque and power, and it also produces power regeneration during the testing process. Annual power regeneration amounts to 0.46 GWh.
Implementation of the Large Power User Statute
In 2020, TECO successfully reached the threshold of renewable energy facilities with a capacity equivalent to 10% of the Company’s contract capacity as prescribed by the government. Excess capacities were sold in form of renewable energy certificates.
Manufacturing center deployment and automation
To cope with regional market growth and demands for decentralized production capacities, the Company has established four main production centers (China, Taiwan, Vietnam, India).
Supply Chain Management
"Supplier Letter of Commitment to Human Rights and Sustainability" signing rate of 99%
TECO established the "Motor Stator Automated Production Center" and “Motor Stamping Automated Production Center” featuring 3D vision robotic arms, unmanned transport vehicles, and automatic coil winding machinery with the goal of forming the largest and most comprehensive smart industrial motor production line in Asia.
Substitution of high-efficiency motors (IE3) for traditional motors (IE1) results in annual CO2 emission reductions of 9,104 kg, which is equivalent to the carbon absorption of 700 trees. During their 15-year life cycles, these motors therefore generate a carbon absorption amount equivalent to that of 10,000 trees.
Indigenous Sustainable Education Plan
Popularization of indigenous folk songs, music, and dance rituals: A total of 204 instructors passed on indigenous culture and rituals to 1760 participants; 265 performances were viewed by a total of 30,000 people.
E-vehicle powertrain system
TECO's next-generation high-performance powertrain “T Power” garnered a Taiwan Excellence Gold Award. TECO is the only manufacturer in Taiwan that is capable of achieving a perfect integration of EV motors and drivers. Its cutting-edge technologies have turned the Company into a market leader in Taiwan,
Use of recyclable materials in motors
Silicon steel scrap is melted and reused in the motor housing. The recycled iron ratio has reached 20.4%.
Water-Based Paint Introduction
Water-based paint accounts for 66.23% of the total output volume, which has generated emission reductions of 52.4%.
Substitution of eco-friendly refrigerants
Promotion of R32 refrigerants and recycling of process refrigerants (usage ratio of 67%)
Energy Conservation and Emission Reduction
Emission reduction target: 20% within 10 years; target achievement rate of 114% in 2020 (the projected target was met five years earlier than expected)
All-out adoption and incorporation into annual performance appraisals of Sustainability KPI, which are linked to the compensation and incentive system, including the three dimensions of internal carbon pricing (ICP), ratio of recycled materials and waste recycling, and climate impact management
Marine life restoration
TECO subsidizes the Marine Life Restoration Program. It is estimated that one dolphin has the same carbon fixation ability as 14 trees. The goal of this program is to enrich the coastal ecology of Taiwan and realize the vision of marine carbon fixation through an increase of the number of large-sized cetaceans.
With a view to shielding marine environments from oil contamination, TECO provides main propulsion motors, side-thrust motors, generators, and auxiliary motors for ships. It was once applied to Taiwan’s RV Ocean Researcher 5 propulsion system, Norwegian large-size ocean research ship, and the US army’s aircraft carriers and destroyers.
