Biodiversity Conservation Guideline

 

Biodiversity includes the abundance of plants and animals and their interactions in the ecosystem. LITEON’s global sites are located in urban areas, which have no dependency on significant ecosystems and LITEON‘s operational activities do not rely on abiotic services. Nevertheless, global ecosystems are under threat from deforestation, land degradation, water, air, and soil pollution, and climate change. This poses wide-ranging challenges for all industries and also renders systemic risks. In order to mitigate the operational risks caused by the continuous decline in biodiversity, LITEON, from the perspective of the manufacturing industry, commits to contribute to a sustainable and prosperous global society through the following guidelines. This guideline is endorsed by our executive management and applies to LITEON’s own operation and its supply chain and other business partners. please refer to Biodiversity Risk Assessment Report for more information.

  1. LITEON is committed to reducing environmental impacts within its own operations and throughout the value chain, with the goal of achieving no gross deforestation, no net loss (NNL) of nature and biodiversity, and net positive impact (NPI) by 2050.
  2. Actively avoid or minimize the impact of LITEON's value chain operations on biodiversity and ecosystem services.
  3. Improve the efficiency of energy, water, and other resource consumption in the manufacturing process. 
  4. Committed to reducing the exploitation of primary materials and utilizing recycling materials to decrease waste generation and lower impact on the ecosystem. 
  5. To eschew or diminish producing pollutants to air, water, and land. 
  6. Ensure that the raw materials used are in compliance with global and local regulations such as international environmental protection laws and responsible minerals policies. 
  7. Keep utilizing product life cycle assessment methods to mitigate the environmental impact that may be induced by production. 
  8. To raise awareness of biodiversity among key stakeholders such as employees, customers, suppliers, etc. through education and training. 
  9. Strengthen cooperation with non-profit organizations to support forest and biodiversity conservation-related initiatives. 
  10. Introduce and gradually expend deforestation-free material in operations to halt deforestation.
