Friendly corporate volunteering
Employees from ECOVE set up "Friendly Charity Society" and take the initiative in organizing charitable activities. To further emphasize corporate social responsibility on the employees, ECOVE actively cooperates with external parties in practicing "green living" in everyday life.
Friendly charity, concern for the disadvantaged
ECOVE established Friendly Charity Society in June 2017, and this platform is open to employees to propose care actions, share ideas on public welfare and innovative charitable activities. 4 projects were conducted in 2018, and they are computer donation for underserved neighborhood, welfare for mentally challenged children, welfare for underprivileged children and families, and environmental volunteer training program. In addition, ECOVE will continue to organize receipt and second-hand clothing donation activities.
Green lifestyle saves energy and reduces carbon footprint
ECOVE's employees promote and organize energy-saving and carbon-reduction activities such as "Winter Energy-Saving", "Office Greenery", "Eating Greens", "Light off in Summer", "Take the Stairs, Reduce Carbon Footprint", "Old Clothes Donation", "Use Chopsticks Love the Earth", etc. at 22 premises. The yearly carbon dioxide emission reduced in the past four years are 661, 15,829, 12,565, and 13,439 kilograms of carbon dioxide equivalent. The accumulated carbon reduction is approximately equivalent to 4.3 hectares of afforestation (reference research by the Forestry Bureau of the Council of Agriculture, based on 2010 estimates of annual carbon fixation of 9.9 tones for every hectare of forest land).
