‧SUNON Mission
 “Saving Energy, Reducing Carbon Emissions, Protecting Environment, and Caring for the Earth” is SUNON’s goal in the protection of the Earth and the environment.  We have begun to make plans for our R & D, quality assurance, production, procurement, and business and management departments and have encouraged everyone to take part in the plans, aiming to help the Earth to become increasingly healthier and greener every year.

SUNON Declaration of Conflict-Free Minerals
SUNON Declaration of REACH Compliance
SUNON Declaration of RoHS Compliance
 SUNON has obtained ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, and IECQ QC080000 certification for the environmental management system of its facilities in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, Kunshan, China, and Foshan, China, and has become a long-term green partner of Sony, Cannon, and Samsung.  The appeal of SUNON's product design and development is environmental protection and energy-savings, and we have invested in green designs that will reduce material consumption and save electricity.  In the production process, we have asked our suppliers to comply with the provisions of the RoHS Directives in their manufacturing process by not using prohibited materials, and the process of product development should also meet the requirements for environmental protection.  Furthermore, we also pay close attention to various international issues on the protection of the environment and the use of energy and have promoted the standardization of halogen-free and the training of our suppliers and employees . Moreover, SUNON has also educated its employees to make them realize the importance of environmental protection and energy saving.  In addition to the establishment of a process and system for the computerization of documents, we also vigorously promote the 6S policies (Sort, Set, Shine, Standardize, Sustain, and Safety), hoping that SUNON can serve as a good example and unite more people to improve the environment of the earth in which we live in!  We expect to forge An Entirely Green SUNON .
 Adhering to the green R & D philosophy of “Environmentally Caring”, SUNON has been making investment in greener designs featuring low energy consumption, long service life, low noise, fewer parts, and simplified manufacturing process.  With its excellent R & D capability, it has released several green products in succession including the Green Motor Fan Series, MagLev Motor Fan Series, Mighty Mini Fan Series, Super Silence Fan Series, LED Cooling Modules, and Super Green Fans.
‧SUNON Environmental Management Policy
 Below is a summary of SUNON's environmental management policy.  Looking forward, SUNON will continue to improve and drive its environmental management policy so that we can create a better and greener environment.
 ◎Reduction of Environmental Pollution
 SUNON strives to reduce energy consumption, protect the environment, reuse resources, and lower costs by cutting down on greenhouse gas emissions.  SUNON complies with ISO 14001 by reducing industrial waste and recycling its resources.  It exercises good control over the generation of waste gases, noises, and waste materials, as well as working to lower emissions so as to minimize environmental impacts.  
 In addition, SUNON spares no effort in emissions inspection through accurate monitoring and management.  Inspection results form the basis of internal documentation and inspection procedures.
 Each of SUNON’s four factories in Taiwan and China have created schedules for implementation of CO2 emissions reductions:

 ◎SUNON Green Product Management System
 In order to ensure that its products are fully compliant with the green environmental provisions in new chemical policies as stipulated in RoHS Directives(2011/65/EU) and REACH (Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals System-Regulation(EC) No 1907/2006) , SUNON has constructed a green supply chain with green procurement procedures by asking its suppliers not to use any prohibited materials, such as lead (Pb), cadmium (Cd), mercury (Hg), hexavalent chromium (Cr6+), polybrominated diphenyl ethers, (PBBs) and Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs).  SUNON also asks its suppliers to present documentation proof that no hazardous substances have been used.  SUNON acts as a strict gatekeeper in order to demonstrate its commitment to protection of the environment.Sunon takes on an active role in efforts of its commitments to the social and environmental issues developed in the process of producing raw materials. The Democratic Republic of the Congo possess an abundant of natural resources including gold (Au), tantalum (Ta), Tin (Sn), and tungsten (W) or “3TG”. These commonly mined conflict materials are essential in the manufacturing of electronic equipment. Massacres, human rights violation, and outrageous behaviors often take place during the process of development. In the eastern provinces of the country, armies and rebel groups have profited in illegal mining of product trade while contributing to violence and exploitation. As a responsible corporate citizen of the world, Sunon is an advocate in the prevention of abuses and hostilities in the exploitation and trade of these conflict resources that result in serious violation of international human rights. Sunon promise to reject metals and materials obtained from the conflict mining regions. We will protect our employees, the customers we serve, and the environments in which we operate. Sunon is raising awareness throughout its entire supply chain on preventing the use of conflict minerals. We raise awareness and monitor our suppliers’ use of conflict minerals and we urge our suppliers to conduct a reasonable investigation into their supply chains.
SUNON’s Purpose in Introducing a Green Product Management System
a. To enhance the effectiveness of the management and control of green materials and to ensure operational accuracy and R&D capabilities through construction of a green supply chain.
b. To improve the effectiveness of management and control of green procurement.
c. To automatically track the test reports and warranties uploaded by suppliers, in order to effectively store data and upgrade management of suppliers.
d. To accurately implement IECQ QC 080000 through a robust IT system.
e. To systematically manage materials and suppliers in order to boost the confidence of clients in the green materials management of SUNON.
 ◎Performance Management
 In addition to its timetable to gradually reduce greenhouse gas emissions, SUNON has implemented a performance management system with predetermined key indicators to measure improvement of management effectiveness.  These key performance indicators will be disclosed periodically, as an expression of SUNON’s determination to protect the environment and fulfill its environmental policies.
