Climate Change Response and Management

Due to the potential financial risks that climate change may pose to our business operations, disclosure of climate change information has gradually become a new trend for sustainability information disclosure. Brogent has set the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 0.25% per year. Pursuant to the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) standards published by the Financial Stability Board (FSB), and the Taiwan Stock Exchange Corporation Rules Governing the Preparation and Filing of Sustainability Reports by TWSE Listed Companies, Brogent has identified risks and opportunities related to climate change and included this information in our overall risk management framework. These risks and opportunities subsequently appear as topics that we focus on in our sustainable development strategies.

Response to and Management of Climate Change Risks
Integrate into regular risk management operations, establish specific improvement plans and risk indicators for each risk management item, preventing potential risks from posing a substantial or transitional impact to Brogent should they occur.

Response to and Management of Climate Change Opportunities
Identify opportunities that can allow Brogent to get ahead of the competition, helping us prepare the necessary investment or resource usage in advance to take advantage of these opportunities.

GHG emissions management
In order to achieve the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 0.25% each year, Brogent has continued to refine the Company's systems and conduct self-assessments, implement energy-saving measures, support renewable energy generation, and incorporate sustainable product philosophies into our research and development to reduce carbon emissions. At the same time, we have sought to strengthen employee awareness and management of climate change risks. Each year, we use the Greenhouse Gas Emission Factor Management Table (version 6.0.4) published by the Environmental Protection Administration, as well as the electricity emissions factors published by the Bureau of Energy, Ministry of Economic Affairs in the past year, to estimate the Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions produced by our Kaohsiung headquarters and our Manufacturing Center (Taoyuan Facility), which we hold 100% stock ownership in and full operational and management rights over, tracking the effectiveness of our greenhouse gas management. In 2022, we emitted 11.09 and 814.03 tons of CO2e respectively in Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions. In total, we emitted 825.12 tons of CO2e, or 1.03 tons of CO2e per NT$1 million in revenue.

Energy-saving measures
  1. Central air conditioning control system: Opt for use of more energy-efficient machinery and employing a centralized air conditioning control system for controlling the temperature.
  2. Illumination system improvement: Replace all illumination facilities in the factories with LED lights, which can save more than 50% energy.
  3. Reducing fuel consumption: Prioritize electric or hybrid cars for company vehicles to reduce gasoline consumption. Set up charging stations for electric scooters.
  4. Behavior management: Switch off unnecessary power-using devices, such as electronic appliances and lights in office aisles.
  5. Sustainable procurement: Purchase general products certified as being environmentally-friendly, organic procurement.
  6. Supporting the government's green energy policy: Install a solar power system, contributing to the use of renewable energy.
  7. Improve indoor air quality: Grow more indoor plants to purify the air.

Support renewable energy generation
Brogent supports the government's renewable energy policies. In 2016, we installed a renewable “solar power system”, and sold generated renewable energy back to the Taiwan Power Company.

Sustainable Product Design
In order to reduce the carbon footprint and environmental impact of our products, Brogent has established fundamental product technology principles that focus on designing products with “modular designs”, “long-life expectancies”, and “an unlimited service life duration”. These principles support our product development philosophy of “creating low carbon/energy-saving product designs”, and of “lowering our environmental impact”. Through repeated development and experimentation, we have in 2022 launched products with lightweight and reduced carbon footprints able to provide energy-saving and carbon reduction benefits.
