Support Local Agriculture
The “Eco-friendly Agriculture” farming method takes water and soil resources, ecological environment, and biodiversity into consideration. Land with this farming method can not only be used for farming, but also for the experience of being and life. Yet it needs more maintenance since it is easier to encounter the challenge of natural disasters and pest damage.
We invited Ru-men Yang, who was farming in Jingshan under contract to promote his ideas and fresh rice in 2017. We also continued to support Liming Xiangyang Welfare House leading people with disabilities to do farming, stock farming, and gardening in the non-polluted nature environment in Hualien. We asked employees to purchase gift boxes on holidays and let the farmers sell products on-site regularly to support eco-friendly agriculture and help promotion.
Maintain the Urban ecological island- Compal Park
With dense buildings in the Neihu Science Park, the structure of the concrete buildings and the asphalt roads tends to bring the Urban Heat Island Effect. Therefore, Compal adopted the 2nd Zhouzi eco-friendly park since 1996, and we named it the “Compal Park”. We also constructed a green hanging garden on the 8th floor of the Compal building, hoping to soothe the Urban Heat Island Effect within limited space and to reduce the temperature around in the summer. It could also reduce the electricity use of the building, increase the permeability and decrease the surface runoff when it’s storming, purify the air, serve as a green recreation place, and build a stepping stone for creatures. With our intent management and maintenance, the Compal Park has always been listed in the front in the audit of the Taipei Air Quality Purification Area these years.
Green Experience Activity
Compal encourages employees to care for the land we live in and find ways to "co-exist" with the environment. Through physical participation, we hope to make employees appreciate the wonders of a green and sustainable environment, and reflect these values through action at work and in life. As a result, we brought enterprise environmental education into the employees’ training and green experience activity. Since 2017, we held educational activities of knowing and promoting sustainable seafood, organic contracted agriculture, visiting the NTU museum to learn about the immigration culture of Taiwan and the ferns, visiting the north coast to learn about the algae reef and coral reef, visiting the Guandu Natural Park to learn about natural ecology, and hand-making eco-friendly hand-made soap and desserts with current seasonal fruits. We also encouraged employees to bring their children along to cultivate green values and an environmentally ethical concept from a young age. At the same time arousing employees’ respect and love for nature, learning how to be a more competent keeper of the Earth.
In 2020, we held an eco-tour guide to take everyone to visit and introduce the ecology and historical sites of the Danshui Estuary. Colleagues take their children to participate, learn about the rich ecology of the Danshui Estuary, and jointly protect this beautiful with both human history and natural ecology environment.
Protect the Marine Ecology
In response to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the United Nations, with 14th item "Life below Water" to be persistently implemented in 2020 as the main approach, we held a total of three beach cleaning activities.
1. "Liu-kuai-cuo Beach Cleaning": Compal Green Life and Health Club cooperated with the Environmental Protection Administration Executive Yuan to participate in marine debris surveys. "Hiin Studio" gave everyone a beach cleaning training class to convey the meaning, correctness of beach cleaning and beach cleaning method. A total of 30 Compal colleagues and family members signed up.
2. "Linkou Chuwei Beach Cleaning Activity": There are 13 colleagues from Compal and 13 volunteers from the Fu Jen Catholic University led 50 children (from the master and servant care station of Taoyuan Dayuan、Guanyin Catholic Church) to collect 108kilograms of trash and recreate the clean and beautiful side of the ocean.
3. "Linkou Jiabao Beach Cleaning Activity": This event was attended by more than 300 large and small partners from Environmental Information Center, Lite-On Technology, Advantech, Poseidon Global and Commonwealth Magazine to clean up 1,705 kilograms of marine waste. There are 55 colleagues from Compal Computer participated in the corporate beach cleaning and concert activities. After the end of the corporate beach cleaning action, the ocean concert began, allowing the sound of the ocean and music to relieve the pressure in everyone's life, leaving a perfect memory for the beach cleaning activity.
