TSMC Green Building Introduction Video

Starting in 2006, TSMC committed to a policy of constructing all new manufacturing facilities and office buildings according to the most up-to-date green building standards. The standards are the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standard, and Taiwan’s Ecology, Energy Saving, Waste Reduction, and Health (EEWH) standard. The intention of this program is to achieve certification by national and international green building standards for all new fabs. From 2008 to early 2014, 16 buildings have been certified by USGBC, seven green buildings & three intelligent buildings have been certified by ABRI.

TSMC initiated a green campus development policy at the end of 2010 to raise the efficiency of green buildings, optimize resource-sharing to reduce cost, eliminate unnecessary equipment and conserve resources, and to thrive alongside the natural environment through comprehensive site planning. TSMC plans to make Fab 12 in Hsinchu, Fab 15 in Taichung, and Fab 14 in Tainan into the company’s three main green campuses. TSMC is committed to a green manufacturing policy and environment protection.
