GHG Management

GHG Inventory

In terms of energy information, we are actively introducing GHG inventory and management approaches. Since 2014, we implemented GHG inventories of our head office and expanded inventories to all branches since 2016, carrying out full GHG inventory and management across Sinyi Realty. Since 2020, we have responded to the CDP questionnaires, participated in the Science-Based Target initiative, and fully supported the carbon trading system (such as renewable energy procurement) in line with the global trend of the “Net Zero by 2050” initiative.

Since 2021, Sinyi Realty has participated in the Net Zero 2030/2050 Initiative, and has committed to achieve the goal of Net Zero by 2030.
In 2021, Sinyi Realty has set a science-based target approved by SBTi to keep warming to 1.5°C.
In 2021, the headquarters building and all branches of Sinyi Realty respond to the international “Earth Hour” event.
In 2020, Sinyi Realty responded to the CDP’s Climate Change Questionnaires for the first time, and achieved the leadership level of grade A-.

In accordance with ISO 14064-1:2018 requirements, our inventory includes direct GHG emissions (category 1), indirect GHG emissions from imported energy (category 2), and other indirect GHG emissions (category 3-6).

In 2020, Sinyi Realty’s total GHG emissions (category 1-6) were 11,508.614 tonCO2e.

  • The GHG emissions from direct GHG emissions (category 1) were 605.7048 tonCo2e.
  • The GHG emissions from indirect GHG emissions from imported energy (category 2) were 6,165.5642 tonCo2e.
  • The GHG emissions from other indirect GHG emissions (category 3-6) were 4,737.3451 tonCo2e.

Through identifying and calculating the GHG emission from direct GHG emissions and removals related to the organization’s operations, it covers CO2, CH4, N2O, HFCs, PFCs, SF6 and NF3.

Sinyi Realty’s GHG Emissions of Electricity Consumption (2020)  
(Headquarters Building, Operating Branches, and Local Administrative Centers)

To actively implement Sinyi’s organizational carbon emissions management, we have introduced ISO 14064-1 and ISO 50001. Since Sinyi’s carbon emissions of electricity consumption account for 91% of GHG emissions (category 1&2), we increased the importance of power management. We continuously updated the equipment of our headquarters and branches, such as implementing green procurement, introducing UGS EMS and the “DOMI-Smart EMS", visualization services and air conditioners and lighting control to receive energy information to achieve optimal energy efficiency. In 2020, we have replaced the Cooling Tower of headquarters to improve energy efficiency. In addition, we used environmentally-friendly and energy-saving equipment, used high illumination in the office design of the branches, regularly inspected electrical equipment, and continuously replaced old air conditioners in branches with energy-saving ones, which makes the effect of emission reduction obvious.

In response to international sustainable initiatives to improve emission reduction, Sinyi Realty has participated in “Taiwan Alliance of Net Zero Emission” and responded to “Net Zero X 2030/2050 Initiative.” Therefore, we refer to the SBTi model to redefine the GHG emission target, that is, “to achieve a 90% reduction in GHG emissions (category 1&2) by 2030.”(Base year: 2017)

Sinyi’s Performance Respond to the Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C (IPCC)

Sinyi has responded to the carbon emission reduction goals from the Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C (IPCC), that is, “reducing about 45% from 2010 levels by 2030”. Meanwhile, because Sinyi’s carbon emissions of electricity consumption account for 91% of GHG emissions (category 1&2), we have calculated our carbon emissions of electricity consumption since 2010. Compared with 2010, we have reduced carbon emissions of electricity consumption by 34.36%, and already cumulatively reduced 30,205 tonCO2e since 2010 and the cumulative reduction has reached 321% of the 2010 levels. In order to set the carbon reduction target in response to the Paris Agreement in a more scientific way, we participated in the SBTi initiative and set the GHG emission target of" to achieve a 90% reduction in GHG emissions (category 1&2) by 2030.”(Base year: 2017) In the future, we will continue to promote various action plans to reduce carbon emission and improve the efficiency of energy and resource usage, and unswervingly move towards the goal of “Net Zero”, to protect the ecology and improve environmental sustainability.
