ASE Technology Holding joins Apple’s Supplier Clean Energy Program

ASE Technology Holding — a semiconductor packaging, test and system service provider — has joined the Apple Supplier Clean Energy Program, which is focused on transitioning suppliers to clean, renewable energy.

The company says it’s supportive of industry efforts to advance the use of clean energy within the supply chain and is pleased to join the Apple Supplier Clean Energy Program By participating in the program, ASE can augment its current approaches to clean energy by tapping into the leadership and resources established by Apple. In 2019, ASE’s total renewable energy consumption amounted to 509,067 MWh, a year-on-year increase of 28% (2018 – 397,766 MWh).

The company has eight manufacturing facilities worldwide that is completely powered by renewable energy and three facilities that have procured renewable energy sources to supplement their energy consumption. To further enhance efficiency in energy usage, ASE invested in a three-year smart grid research project in 2018 to integrate energy intelligence for balancing demand and energy generation.

In 2014, ASE was the first company in Asia to issue green bonds with its proceeds earmarked for green buildings and green production. ASE launched a second green bond issue in 2019, applying the proceeds towards development in renewable energy sources, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, managing energy efficiency, and recycling, reuse and conservation efforts.
