UMC Energy-Saving and Safety Service Team Engages in Social Welfare to Share its Core Competency Knowledge

UMC Energy-Saving and Safety Service Team has entered its fifth year since its establishment in 2016. As of 2020, it has served a total of 36 organizations. In 2020, the team has offered energy-saving diagnosis and recommendations to 10 organizations in Taiwan, helping them to save NT$8.459 million in annual electricity costs. So far, the team has helped 36 organizations across Taiwan, providing energy-saving diagnosis and recommendations in areas including air-conditioning systems, power systems, water management, and fire safety issues. The team not only provides recommendations, but also helps disadvantaged social welfare organizations to solve their problems.

The Energy-Saving and Safety Service Team Continues to Spread Love
The members of UMC's Energy-Saving and Safety Service Team were initially composed of enthusiastic UMC employees with a professional background. Now, the team is formed by personnel from UMC’s subsidiaries, supply chains and suppliers, becoming an integrated platform for connecting multiple resources. The professional backgrounds from members of the team include water saving, power saving, air conditioning, lighting, plant construction, fire safety, etc., and the services offered by the team include energy-saving and safety consultation, technical consultation on energy and resources, engineering improvement, etc. In the future, it is hoped that more suppliers can be invited to bring their strength into full play, helping more disadvantaged social welfare groups that are in need.
