Electricity and Water Consumption and Total Weight of General Industrial Waste

In order to promote environmental protection, energy conservation, and carbon reduction in offices, MetaAge did an inventory check of the consumption of resources such as electricity, water, and paper and defined its reduction goals based on the findings.

  • Electricity: With 2022 as the baseline, the annual goal of reducing electricity consumption by 1% per capita was defined.
  • Water: A reseller, MetaAge does not have a factory or a manufacturing process. All the water consumed is supplied by the Taiwan Water Corporation. MetaAge also did a Group-wide inventory check for the first time on water consumption in 2022 and set an annual goal of reducing water consumption by 1% per capita.
  • Paper: General business waste is centrally handled and destroyed by the Building Management Committee and it is impossible to get the actual weight. As such, only the weight of the paper involved in the documents destroyed by MetaAge (Taipei) was obtained and the annual goal of reducing paper consumption by 1% per capita was set.

GHG Inventory Check

To meet the goal of net zero emissions by 2050, MetaAge began to refer to the criteria set in ISO 14064-1 for organizational GHG inventory checks in 2022 and did inventory checks of Category 1 and Category 2 GHGs and also part of Categories 3, 4, and 5, namely, respectively, employee commuting, fuels, and energy production and transport and related investment activities.
