Green Products

TSMC requires good hazardous substance management, pollution prevention, energy saving, water saving, waste reduction and other clean production measures in our own factories. We also require and assist suppliers to do so, and even ask suppliers to have their suppliers do so and establish a semiconductor green supply chain together.
