Identify and manage all potential environmental impacts of our operations.
Environmental protection is now a pressing worldwide issue. The accreditation of ISO 14001 Environmental Management System provides us a guideline to commit to protecting the environment and ensuring that all potential impacts are identified and managed in a responsible manner.
The same principle also applies to all internal process and procedures. These include the monitoring of waste discharges, campaigns, and activities to enhance environmental awareness among employees.
To improve energy efficiency, UAT continuously monitors and optimizes energy consumption in areas of paper, carbon, water, and electricity. Energy saving labels are adopted at the workplace to encourage employees' awareness and action. Every year, we set the objective of energy conservation to challenge higher goals.
In promoting a green Hong Kong, UAT carefully considers potential environmental impacts regarding environmental aspects including air emission, noise, indoor air quality, wastewater discharge, and excessive surplus materials at office and site. We strictly comply with the environmental laws and regulations even under new challenges.
UAT adopts 'Recycle, Reuse, and Reduce Policy' to minimize waste. We educate employees the proper waste disposal by environmental awareness training and waste management program. Donation of waste electrical and electronic equipment including computers, displays, video conferencing systems, and telephones to NGOs, schools, and the Environment Protection Department are pursued throughout the year to assist the needy.
We convey the message of environmental protection to our customers, business partners, and the community including trade-in program, disposal of end-of-life equipment, and voluntary activities relating to environmental protection.
UAT purchases products and materials that cause minimal adverse environmental impacts in accordance with our green procurement policy. We conduct supplier assessment with suppliers for their environmental performance such as recyclability, durability, energy efficiency, environmental certification, and international standard.
