CASE STUDY

Protect the Environment

What We Want to Solve

Climate change has become a global issue, and it is an urgent priority to increase the public awareness of protecting environment.

How We Respond and Act

The TSMC Charity Foundation spreads the knowledge of environment protection. We expect to increase citizen’s awareness of protecting environment by:
1. helping schools improve their energy utility by TSMC professional energy-saving volunteers;
2. promoting environment protection spirit through ecology volunteers;
3. other project based activities.

What We Have Done

Other Project Based Activities

Earth Day

On Earth Day on the 22nd April, TSMC co-worked with the Environment Protection Administration of Taiwan to clean up the beaches. A total of 181 employees and their family members devoted nearly 800 hours cleaning up the beaches at the Hsinchu Yongan Fishing Port, the Xinfeng Mangrove and the Tainan Anping Beach. The awareness of protecting environment was also been awoke when protecting the earth.

A Trip of Eco-friendly Farming

Fab 12A volunteers led students of the Nei Wan elementary schools to experience farming, personally experienced how much effort a famer make when farming, to introspect the environmental impact of mountain reclamation, and further grew the awareness of protecting environment in their mind.

Tainan Jacana Sanctuary

Tainan Guantian Jacana Sanctuary water chestnut field is the habitat of Jacana. TSMC provides tour services every year. In 2017, the habitat field for Jacana was nearly dried because the water well was broken and not able to provide water due to poor maintenance for years. After personally visiting the Jacana Sanctuary by TSMC professional volunteers, we donated around NT$470,000 for repairing the water well, and we expect the water well digging to be completed in early 2018.

TSMC Museum of Innovation and the Power House

Fab 2 and Fab 5 volunteers led children to visit the TSMC Museum of Innovation and the Power House. Along with the climate change board games provided by the Hsinchu County Environment Protection Bureau, children have better understanding on the contribution of semiconductor industry for the society. They also realize a small action/decision could have an impact on climate changing of the world through the board games.

Tour Volunteer

TSMC believes that sharing technology knowledge is one of the important ways to contribute to the society. Except the four key focuses, we hope the knowledge of semiconductor can be known widely by the public, making technology easier to understand. Currently there are volunteers providing tour services in the Taichung National Science and Technology Museum and TSMC’s Museum of Innovation in Hsinchu. In 2017, 1,350 person- times tour volunteers provided over 8,100 service hours.
