CMC’s Kaohsiung facility, located in southern Taiwan, received the 2012 Taiwan Outstanding Award for Energy Conservation and Carbon Reduction for being one of the first companies to successfully integrate electronic submission format of all state papers to the Taiwan government.  Taiwan’s Government has been promoting the use of an electronic or paperless submission system as of March 2012. This system is intended to ensure that the state papers from the government to various companies will be delivered via electronic-mail (e-mail) to the various companies, in order to minimize the use of papers. CMC’s Kaohsiung facility was one of the few companies to adopt and implement the government’s strategy.  This effort was lead by Pauline Lu and Shelley Chen and was formally launched in August, 2012.
