Goals and achievement

YOKE’s first step towards climate change response began with our risk assessment and inventory of GHG emissions. The risk assessment enabled us to gain a preliminary understanding of the risks involved. At the same time, we sought to establish a functional set of performance indicators that we can rely on for climate change mitigation and adaptation through a standardized collection procedure of quantified data taken from our GHG inventory.

The total emissions for Category 1 and 2 in 2020 came to 5,389.49 metric tons of CO2e and the figures have been verified by an external certification body.Using 2019 as the base year, our total emission for 2020 fell by 859.22 metric tons of CO2e. For the 35.33 (15.87%) metric tons of CO2e reduction in our Category 1 emission, it was primarily attributed to the decrease in our production as the consequence of COVID-19 that impacted the world, diesel consumption by diesel-powered company vehicles and use of methanol in our thermal treatment decreased compared to 2019. For similar reasons (COVID-19), the 823.89 (15.95%) metric tons of CO2e reduction in our Category 2 emission because of lower machinery utilization rate. This consequently reduced power consumption for our factory. In addition, the power emission coefficient we used for our report was the latest figure published by the Energy Bureau in 2019 and the coefficient was slightly lower compared to that of 2018, and this accounts for the reduction. As for GHG emission intensity, due to the lower utilization rate for our machinery, our energy efficiency fell as a result and our GHG emission intensity for 2020 increased by 0.16 (9.1%). Compared to Categories 1 and 2, the figure adequately demonstrated that YOKE had successfully improved its GHG emission in spite of our reduced production efficiency.

Year 2019 2020
Operation Site Factory 1 and Factory 2 Factory 1 and Factory 2
Category 1 (direct greenhouse gas emissions and removal) 222.68 187.35
Category 2 (indirect greenhouse gas emissions from imported energy) 5,166.81 4,342.92
Category 1+2 total (metric tons of CO2e) 5,389.49 4,530.27
Greenhouse emission intensity (metric tons of CO2e/million NTD) 1.75 1.91

Note 1 The greenhouse inventory was implemented in accordance with ISO 14064-1:2018 version, and SGS has been commissioned to conduct the third-party verification.

Note 2: Category 2 emissions are attributed to electrical power, and in 2020 we adopted the latest emission coefficient of 0.509 metric tons of CO2e/kilowatt as published by the Energy Bureau in 2019.

Note 3: For fuel and refrigerant emission coefficients, we referred to Emission Factor Table 6.0.4 from the research summary of greenhouse gas emissions published by the Environmental Protection Agency, Executive Yuan.
