At Qisda, we strive to continue and fulfill our Corporate Sustainable Development (CSD) vision as “Be an innovator in designing and manufacturing of electronic products, elevate the life quality of our fellow humans, and be friendly to Mother Earth” – which is reflected through our efforts in creating green products. In the attempt to advocate green sustainable products, we identify several stages to instill the concept of green thinking from the organizational environment to the product’s actual surroundings. We also care about the impacts that our products have on the environment after being delivered. It is noticeable that the green thinking concept is embedded within the complete life cycle of a product.
In order to reduce the environmental impacts presented in a product’s life cycle, we believe that the elements of green design must be instilled from the preliminary stage of a product design, covering the product concept and its actual surroundings. The most effective approach is seeking the collaboration between design expertise, quality assurance procedure, and the R&D procedure so as to initiate the evaluation and modification in various design stages.
Looking ahead to the year 2015, we will continue to promote Green Design 555 (energy saving 5%, material reduction 5%, carbon reduction 5%) and incorporate green design in our product development procedure by applying ISO 14006 Environmental Management Systems - Guidelines for Incorporating Ecodesign. Based on the solid foundation built since
20121, we have been rewarded with great outcomes in 2014 — energy saving
28.82%, material reduction 35.95%2, carbon reduction 27.84%3.
1.The Performance of “Green Design 555” in 2012 has achieved Energy Saving by 17.72%, 3R Rate increasing by 20.06%, Material Reduction by 17.12%, and Carbon Reduction by 11.68%; all have exceeded the original target of 5%, comparing to the performance of the base year 2010.
2.The reduction aspect covers reducing the volume and weight of products and packages and reducing the component volume of its products.
3.Since the company is a professional OEM that produces electronic products for brands and other clients, the calculation of product carbon reduction does not include usage and disposal phases.
4.The calculation of energy efficiency is the ratio of power output versus power input.
