A total of 8 million tonnes of plastic waste enter the ocean worldwide every year. There will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050. The UN has named plastic waste a global crisis second only to climate change. LITEON is rooted in the island of Taiwan. Situated on the world's largest convergent boundary between land and sea, LITEON follows responsible production as a corporate citizen committed to the plastic reduction and marine conservation. LITEON has been placing a greater emphasis on environmental sustainability to which the company has made a long-term commitment. In support of UN SDG 14, LITEON created the SEA HOPE Project and launched a series of marine conservation themed activities as the company's response to issues of marine environment arising from modern production and consumption patterns. These activities included promoting marine waste based circular economy, launching a marine environment initiative, and utilizing core competencies for marine conservation.
