Sustainable Manufacturing Process
The VR devices by HTC combine new forms of operation, life, working, learning and traveling through green product design and help users to reach the goal of energy saving and carbon-reduction. For energy consumption during the production process, we have strengthened our management and introduced operation control center(OCC) to reduce energy consumption and implement waste management.
From a holistic value chain perspective, we manage waste by establishing a supplier management system to ensure proper handling of upstream waste. By incorporating the principles of waste reduction and circular economy starting from the stage of our product design, we adhere to our established "Waste Management Procedures" in our operational activities to ensure that all waste is properly classified, managed, and disposed of in accordance with procedures and regulatory requirements. We outsource the treatment of the waste generated from our operations by engaging authorized waste removal and treatment facilities approved by the Environmental Protection Administration for backend processing. Similarly, qualified vendors are entrusted with the treatment of our recyclable materials for internal recycling within the company. Our focus is on reducing the environmental impact of waste and improving waste recycling rates, thereby ensuring the effective resource recovery and proper waste management.
Our manufacturing processes minimize waste that has a negative impact on the environment. We strictly adhere to environmental, safety, and sanitation audit standards to ensure the legality of waste removal and disposal without causing any environmental impact. Overall, we uphold our commitment to the proper handling of waste and engage authorized waste removal and treatment facilities. We carefully select the most suitable methods for waste treatment based on its nature and utilize an online reporting system to ensure that waste removal vendors clear and transport waste properly under supervision. We also conduct regular audits of waste treatment facilities to ensure compliance with regulations. After the completion of waste treatment, the treatment facility logs into the "Industrial Waste Report and Management System" platform of the Environmental Protection Administration for reporting, thereby meeting regulatory requirements and fulfilling our self-expectations for environmental sustainability.
