Responsible Production and Consumption
Not only care for environment but also provide healthy and safe product is the commitment of Getac to customers. The United Nations has announced 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the 12th of which is “Responsible Production and Consumption,” Getac advocates this concept with producing safe and healthy products as our mission.
Restriction of hazardous substances
For new raw materials, a product inspection report must be provided within two years in order to ensure that the product does not contain any hazardous substances. A new report must be provided every two years, otherwise the system will suspend the use of the material and critical parts involved. Getac Kunshan, which specializes in the assembly of electronic products, MPT Kunshan and MPT Suzhou, which specialize in the production of plastic injection mechanical parts have incorporated the IECQ QC 080000 Hazardous Substance Process Management (HSPM) system for electrical and electronic components and products, and complies with international directives for environmental protection, including the REACH, Substance of Very High Concern (SVHC), and RoHS, to prevent the use of materials, parts, or products containing hazardous substance which would otherwise impact the ecosystem.

Complied with international environmental regulations
In 2018, all of Getac‘s products complied with international environmental regulations. As required by product environmental regulations adopted in the country of origin of the product, electronic products were certified by international safety standards, in compliance with regulations on product safety, radio frequency, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), and other safety issues adopted in the country of origin (e.g., UL and FCC in the U.S., CE and RED in the EU, and BSMI in Taiwan).Our products or packages are labeled with information on safety regulations, energy conservation, and environmental communication certification. There were no violations of product labeling regulations.
Energy-conservation And Electricity-saving Design , Annual reduction of 262 metric tons of carbon dioxide emission equivalent
With frequent occurrence of energy shortages in recent years, have occurred frequently, the cost of electricity has been rising. Whether electronic products can balance computing efficiency and energy conservation has become a key competitive capability. In 2018, all the rugged notebooks and tablets of Getac, except for two small tablets have reached the energy-saving top limit, and the rest are ENERGY STAR 7.0 certified. The actual laboratory test values are lower than the standard value required by the report. It is estimated that the rugged computer sold by Getac in 2018 can save at least 262 metric tons of carbon dioxide emission equivalent for the Earth, demonstrated Getac's efforts and achievements in energy-saving design.
Easier to disassemble, Recyclable
Getac adopts measures for “waste reduction,” “recycling and reuse, and the use of recycled materials,” in order to mitigate environmental impact. Getac's electronic products comply with the WEEE requirements. On the packaging of each of our products, we state that the products are made from recycled materials and provide instructions on how to dismantle the products for every one of our product. We also commission local certified vendors in European regions to recycle our products. When recycling our products, they can be easily disassembled for re-use, which reduces resource waste. Furthermore, Getac products are designed following Energy related Products (EuP) directives and Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) standards.
Evaluate the transportation distance for the trading partners with regular frequent dealings, and the packaging materials used shall be recycled and reused. MPT Kunshan and MPT Suzhou
Plants commissioned professional recycling companies to assist in the recycling and reusing the cardboard boxes, paying by pieces, and encourage manufacturers to keep the completeness of the cardboard boxes and increase the quantity of recycling during the transportation process. Also, record the quantity of cardboard boxes when shipping in and out of the plant, the recycle rate And in the factory to record the number of cartons, the Recycling Rate in 2018 reached more than 75%.
- MPT Kunshan Recycling Rate of Cardboard Box: 76%
- MPT Suzhou Recycling Rate of Cardboard Box: 80%
The use of recycled materials
Plastic mechanical products and automotive mechanical products are OEM businesses; the materials used are mainly plastic pellets and aluminum ingots, which must be based on the materials designated by the customers. In 2018, a total of 15,363 metric tons of aluminum materials was used for the automotive mechanical parts, and 100% of them were recycled aluminum.The customers have increased the percentage of using recycled materials in the plastic pellets used in plastics mechanical parts, a total of 13,730 metric tons of plastic pellets were used in 2018, of which 1,278 metric tons of recycled plastic pellets were used, which is about 60% more than the use of 797 metric tons in 2017, and the recycled plastic pellets account for about 9% of plastic pellets.
