By 2022, all product lines have attained 100% compliance with Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) regulations. In 2022, the company's products that assist brand customers to obtain various environmental protection labels account for 85.07% of hardware revenue. All product lines are 100% in compliance with customer requirements, environmental protection laws and regulations, energy consumption labels and safety regulations in various regions. Meanwhile, there was no incident of non-compliance with regulations and voluntary codes concerning product information and labeling.

To mitigate the negative effects on the environment and society from using raw materials, Wistron has formulated a Sustainable Materials Policy with corresponding targets and implemented sustainable materials programs. Our policy prioritizes the use of primary or secondary raw materials that have the least adverse impact on the environment and society across all our activities. This includes research and development, procurement, production, operations, and services. The Sustainable Materials Policy is expected to be released on Wistron ESG official website by the end of August 2024.

Product safety management and guidelines

In order to ensure that raw materials do not use hazardous substances to comply with international environmental protection regulations and customer regulations on hazardous substances, Wistron has formulated "Wistron Hazardous Substance Management Regulations" and "Control Operation Procedures for Products Containing Hazardous Substances" by following the management framework of IECQ QC080000. We have developed Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and Green Product Management (GPM) on our own to confirm that all parts and packaging materials used in products must comply with international environmental protection regulations and customer regulations on hazardous substances. In 2022, there were currently 10 banned substance and 297 regulated substances. Wistron re-examines regulations and customer standards every six months for the amendment of Wistron regulations to ensure compliance with raw material regulations and customer specifications. Wistron's packaging materials mainly use renewable materials. We compile statistics every year based on the import/export customs declaration system for the weight of product materials and packaging materials.

Banned substances


Regulated substances


In accordance with international environmental protection regulations and customer environmental protection requirements, Wistron has formulated "Wistron Hazardous Substance Management Regulations" to define the standards for restricting hazardous substances such as components, packaging materials, and auxiliary materials used in products. This is used to establish a list of control and monitoring items, and cooperate with suppliers to reduce the impact on the environment and protect human health.

Wistron's hazardous substances control targets in 2024 are 315 items. Bisphenol-A is expected to be included in Wistron's Supplier Green Procurement Requirements (717-R025 ver.30) in 2024.
