In conjunction with the Paris Agreement, to ensure that global warming does not exceed 1.5°C, greenhouse gases (GHG) need to be reduced and reach net zero emissions by the year 2050. In response to this, Hotayi has set a goal to reduce 5% of our carbon emissions every year.
We aim to cooperate with over 1,200 companies to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. As one of the leading EMS companies in the world, we report our Climate Change and Water Security-related emissions to CDP, an international non-profit organisation created to aid companies and cities disclose their environmental impact. This is our first step to driving our environmental improvement actions.
According to the CDP Report submitted, we at Hotayi are determined to be transparent about climate issues. We hope to use this as a stepping stone to transform our commitments into coordinated action, to integrate climate consciousness into the very fibre of our operating models and decision-making.
Our use of a Building Management System (BMS) allows us to monitor temperature and humidity in a timely manner. A BMS adjusts room temperature according to occupancy or usage frequency, lowering energy consumption.
With Light Motion Sensors in our building, we will be able to reduce our energy consumption through controlling usage via motion detection.
We can reuse cooling water for our air conditioners, preventing excessive wastage.
By recycling packaging and bins as well as reducing paper through conversion to electronic copies, we will save waste, energy, water, as well as carbon dioxide emissions.
Through the maximisation of delivery productivity and efficiency, we will have a smaller environmental footprint.
Becoming a green company is a collaborative effort. Cultivating an energy-saving work culture, we strive to foster climate consciousness in our employees, encouraging them to take part in our sustainability initiatives.
We are committed to treating people ethically and fairly, including those within the workforce, across supply chains, and in the communities in which we operate. We believe that human talent and potential are indispensable gems to be supported and valued.
We cultivate an optimal workplace for career growth. We operate by the highest standards of ethics, abiding by the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA)’s code of conduct. At every step of the way, we ensure that we maintain a safe and healthy work environment, where our employees are treated with the utmost respect and dignity, and where our business operations are environmentally responsible and conducted ethically.
We treat our various stakeholders with care, dutifully delivering our business responsibilities of growth and corporate value to our clients, employees and shareholders.
We are people-focused, operating on the belief that one man’s success depends not on the amount of money one earns, but on the amount of people one helps achieve success.
As a major supplier to Hotayi, we would ask that you perform the following:
Hotayi also executes due diligence on the source and chain of custody of conflict minerals in its supply chain. This is in conformance with the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD)’s guidelines, namely the Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Materials from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas.
We are devoted to supporting the responsible sourcing of conflict minerals, cobalt and other minerals from the Democratic Republic of Congo (including conformant smelters within the region) and other conflict-affected or high-risk areas. Conflict minerals include gold, columbite-tantalite (otherwise known as coltan), cassiterite, wolframite and their derivatives, as well as tin, tantalum, and tungsten (collectively referred to as 3TG).
Our commitment to responsible sourcing means we require our suppliers to ensure that the source of conflict minerals used in our product manufacturing does not directly or indirectly fund violence or human rights violations in the Democratic Republic of Congo or the adjoining countries. We want our suppliers to source conflict minerals from smelters validated or soon-to-be validated as compliant with conflict-free sourcing standards, such as the Conflict-Free Smelter Program (CFSP).
For Hotayi to achieve its conflict mineral policy objectives, suppliers are obligated to comply with our conflict mineral programs. This compliance includes the following:
