Sustainable Products

HIWIN is dedicated to green manufacturing and sustainable development. We achieve this through technological innovation to enhance energy utilization efficiency in our products, as well as the implementation of green design strategies. Our commitment to green manufacturing extends throughout the entire product life cycle, from sourcing raw materials to end-use and waste recycling. By doing so, we aim to fulfill our responsibility for sustainable product development and minimize our environmental impact. Additionally, HIWIN upholds the principles of sustainable development by ensuring compliance with health and safety laws and regulations throughout the product life cycle. We prioritize the well-being of our customers and end-users, as well as environmental protection. Our raw materials and contents adhere to relevant health and safety requirements, including EU RoHS, REACH, and other regulations.

Green Product Design Strategy

To achieve sustainable production, HIWIN employs the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) for green product design. This involves systematically analyzing products at every stage, from raw material acquisition to manufacturing, assembly, sales, transportation, use, and final disposal. We identify the environmental impacts at each stage and conduct carbon inventory using ISO 14067:2018. Currently, we have completed the carbon footprint calculations for RGW45HC and R16-2T4-FSI. In 2023, we will extend these calculations to all our products and establish yearly reduction targets to ensure the production of sustainable and environmentally friendly products.

Throughout the product life cycle, HIWIN integrates environmental protection into product development and design. We adopt green manufacturing methods such as energy conservation, carbon reduction, and resource reuse. We continuously strive for improvements to achieve product sustainability and other goals. We plan to start performing relevant statistical calculations in 2023, disclose the results, and set long-term goals. Environmental protection is a core aspect of HIWIN’s corporate social responsibility, and we will continue to minimize environmental impacts at all stages of the product life cycle to achieve sustainable development.

HIWIN is dedicated to promoting ESG sustainable development. In addition to reduce the carbon footprint of our products through various measures such as carbon footprint calculation, establishing a carbon management platform, integrating green product development processes, and using low-carbon materials, we have also developed smart products to assist customers in energy conservation and carbon reduction. We have shared these experiences with our overseas subsidiaries. Moving forward, we will continue to promote low-carbon products, facilitate green recycling design, improve product energy efficiency, and reduce environmental impact. Our ultimate goal is to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Green Products

HIWIN is dedicated to enhancing the energy efficiency of its products and has created a range of environmentally friendly and energy-saving products to support customers and end-users in their pursuit of reducing carbon emissions and promoting sustainable development. These energy-saving products encompass crossed roller bearings, strain wave gear, underwater direct drive rotary tables, wafer robots, industrial robots, cool type ballscrews, intelligent ballscrews, and other related products.

Furthermore, energy conservation is accomplished through the implementation of innovative process technologies, such as new energy-saving process technologies, plastic recycling and waste reduction, process efficiency enhancement, and recycling of medical equipment packaging.

Hazardous Substance Management

(1) Hazardous Substance Management and Product Environmental Impact Assessment

HIWIN markets its products worldwide. To guarantee compliance with customers’ and international laws and regulations, such as the EU REACH and RoHS, suppliers must sign prohibition clauses and provide detailed information to confirm that their products are free from environmentally hazardous substances. HIWIN will systematically implement an auditing and inventory system to ensure that suppliers consistently deliver safe and reliable materials.

(2) Hazardous Substance Elimination Program

HIWIN will gradually develop a comprehensive mechanism for managing hazardous substances, in accordance with international regulations. This mechanism will include activities such as material declaration, supplier evaluation, product testing, and hazardous substance information management. We conduct regular investigations, screenings, audits, and information collection to ensure that the materials used in our products comply with environmental laws and regulations, as well as meet the needs of our customers. Additionally, we regularly update the information on hazardous substances in our products and conduct the necessary screenings and evaluations for new materials.

(3) Product Certification

With the increasing global focus on environmental issues, consumers are now more concerned about purchasing green products. HIWIN has always prioritized the development and promotion of green products. To ensure compliance with international standards and regulations, HIWIN has actively pursued international certifications and product certifications. The Company has already obtained several international certifications and is currently working towards obtaining the IECQ QC080000 Hazardous Substance Management System Certification. Additionally, HIWIN is dedicated to researching and producing green products, with all of its products currently meeting the environmental protection requirements of RoHS, REACH, and other regulations. Moving forward, HIWIN will continue to promote the development and certification of green products, further refining the environmental indicators of its products. This will provide consumers with increased confidence in choosing HIWIN’s products, as we work towards jointly building a green and sustainable future.
