Sustainable Manufacturing

Sustainable Manufacturing Declaration

ASE Group provides eco-efficient and responsible service to customers through the integration of sustainable practices into all stages of the manufacturing process, including material usage, design, procurement, production and packing. These practices help reduce costs, enhance competitiveness and reduce the impacts on environment, safety and health.

ASE Group is committed to:

  • Complying with all applicable laws and regulations.
  • Managing hazardous substances in parts and materials that are used to make products.
  • Providing product solutions that are compact, lightweight and energy efficient.
  • Continuously enhancing resource recycling, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, waste generation, wastewater effluent and chemical usage.
  • Reducing product packaging and wastes.

ASE Group Green Laboratory

Our green laboratory is dedicated to the following:

  • Evaluation and development of green materials: Evaluation of non-toxic or low toxic product raw materials and process chemicals.
  • Development of environmental testing technology: Establishment of monitoring technology, mechanism and standard, compliant with world environmental regulations.
  • Development of Green Process: Improve utilization rate of chemicals or raw materials; evaluate recovery, reduction and reproduction technologies for waste, wastewater and chemicals.
  • Development of Environment Friendly Packaging: Develop bio-composite packaging materials.

Sustainable Manufacturing Measure

Since all of the manufacturing stages are closely interlinked in terms of environmental, health and safety impact, continuous efforts are required to make incremental improvements and to achieve technological innovation. ASE aims to make such improvement and innovative efforts throughout our operations in order to continuously deliver sustainable products to customers.


Product Eco-Efficiency (EE)

ASE established the product eco-efficiency model with the goal of improving the environmental quality while increasing product value. By embedding the ecoefficiency concept in our internal management, material consumptions throughout the whole product life cycle can be significantly reduced which in turn reduces the environmental impact and help to achieve our environmental goals for sustainable development.

In 2016, we established EE models for BGAs and communication modules. In 2017, we took it one step further by identifying the different types of environmental impact from Bumping products. We also completed product eco-efficiency calculations and established EE assessment models of Bumping products.

Third Party Assurance

ASE completed the ISO 14067 Carbon Footprint Verification for its BGA, lead frame, CSP and flip chip products, as well as the "ISO 14045 Product Eco-efficiency assessment"* in 2016. In 2017, we achieved ISO 14067 Carbon Footprint Verification and ISO 14051:2011 Material Flow Cost Accounting certification for wireless module products (4G dualband modules).


Green Contribution from Our Manufacturing Service

We provide manufacturing service to our customers to develop energy efficient products (including Wireless communication module, POS machines, Desktop internal ATX PSU with multiple-outputs, Desktop Mother Boards, Smart Handheld Devices, NAS Systems, SSD, Server systems, and micromodule converters) that reduce energy consumption by around 1 ~ 9% compared with equivalent products on the market. The energy efficient products, shipped to our clients in 2017, help reduce a total emission of at least 70,000 tCON2e per year during their usage.
