Environmental, Health & Safety Policy & Programs

Environmental, Health and Safety Objectives

  • To operate our processes with minimum environmental impact and occupational health and safety hazards by adopting best available technologies, compliance of relevant legislation and highest standard of safe practices.
  • To continue to evaluate, review and improve our performance in environment, health and safety practices.
  • To implement comprehensive programs to prevent potential occupational risk and reduce negative impact to the environment.

STATS ChipPAC's Long Term Environmental, Health and Safety Goals

10 year goal from 2009 to 2018:
  • Reduce energy consumption / CO2 emission per unit by 30% using 2008 as baseline
  • Re-use / recycle >20% of water purchased
  • Recycle >70% of hazardous and non-hazardous waste generated
  • Achieve world-class safety performance in terms of accident frequency and severity rate lower than industry benchmark
    >   2010 Electronic Product Benchmark (Source:  Ministry of Manpower, Singapore) per million man-hours worked:
              - Accident frequency rate (FR) = 0.7
              - Accident severity rate (SR) = 10

Key EHS Programs and Achievements in 2015

In 2015, STATS ChipPAC implemented key environmental, health and safety programs and initiatives.

Achieved 19.9% Scope 1 & 2 energy reduction (equivalent to 21.0% reduction in CO2 emissions [tonnes] / K-units) compared to 2008 baseline through Energy Conservation Programs (2015 Goal: 22.5% reduction)
  • Use of 2X ultrasonic humidifier 
  • LED and motion sensor installation
  • Compressor overhaul, chiller, condenser water pump optimization 
  • Chiller heat, cool drain and cooling tower capacity recovery 
  • High efficiency VSD monitor and transformer
