In the face of climate change and the deteriorating natural environmental, Chunghwa Post believes that enterprises should have the environmental concept of sustainable coexistence with the earth. How to provide environmentally friendly postal services is an important issue for the Company’s sustainable management.
Postal Services with the Concept of Recycling
Chunghwa Post provides Convenience Boxes services to fulfill the corporate responsibility to maintain a green earth, and customers can repeatedly use the boxes and still enjoy postage discounts. In 2022, the total number of Convenience Boxes sold was 5,387,902, of which 620,077 were recycled, with the reuse rate of 11.51%.
Postal Services with Carbon Reduction
Chunghwa Post started to purchase electric vehicles from 2017 and distributed them to post offices for use. As of the end of 2022, the Company has a total of 3,241 electric scooters (1,000 of which were leased with a term of 5 years) and 54 electric vans, accounting for over 35% of the overall postal scooters.
