Large volumes of resources such as power, water, and paper are consumed by our laboratories and offices all over the world, to maintain normal operations. This is deemed our greatest impact on the nature. We are aware of the scarcity of resources and the fragility of the ecosystem, as well as the expectations of the government, the public and other stakeholders for energy conservation and emission reduction. All these factors make it our urgent duty to conserve resources and protect the common homeland of mankind. We pledge to try our best to improve the energy efficiency of equipment, and reduce unnecessary resource consumption, seeking minimum impact on the environment. Our Engineering and Equipment Management Center is the department responsible for the overall energy management within the Group. The Experimental Equipment Management Measures and other regulations have been introduced for CTI to better manage energy conservation and emission reduction.
Our Performance in 2020
Lower Energy Consumption
At the current stage, we are cutting energy consumption in business operations by reinforcing management and raising awareness. Energy-saving knowledge has been included in daily training; and “low energy consumption” has been identified as a criterion for purchasing laboratory and office equipment. Employees are encouraged to reduce the standby time of computers and laboratory equipment, and turn off unnecessary electrical appliances and lighting in a timely manner. And we recommend customers to collect testing, inspection, and certification documents in electronic versions to reduce paper waste. We have also employed a variety of measures to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions, including the following:
Energy Saving and Consumption Reduction Initiative
We launched an Energy Saving and Consumption Reduction Initiative in 2019, which has continued to this day. Through internal channels, we promote the importance of power and water conservation, organize online award-winning Q&A activities, and encourage employees to sign the “Energy Conservation Starts with Me” statement. It is hoped to raise employees’ awareness of energy conservation during daily work in offices and operations in laboratories.
