Climate Change

To combat climate change, HUMAX has divided its greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction strategy into two focus areas: operations and products.

  • On the operations side, HUMAX has expanded the organizational boundaries for the GHG inventory, analyzed reduction activities, and set appropriate reduction targets.
Step 1.
Step 2.
Step 3.

Building & Verification of GHG Inventor
Reduction Factors Analysis
Reduction Targets Setting

  • Expand organizational boundaries
    Phase 1 : HPL, HBR (Company-owned plants)
    Phase 2 : EMS (Contracted plants)
    Phase 3 : Expand to overseas subsidiaries and offices
  • Secure expertise and credibility
  • Analyze reduction activities
  • Assess plant status: Diagnose energy processes and analyze reduction factors
  • Benchmarking: Assess and secure reduction techniques
  • Select applicable reduction activities
  • Set criteria for reduction targets

  • On the products side, HUMAX has conducted an accurate Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of products and established a reduction strategy beginning with the high-emission raw materials/use stage.
Step 1.
Step 2.
Step 3.

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)
Reduction Strategy for “Material & USE” Stages
Reduction Strategy for “All Lifecycle” Stages

  • Define boundaries and calculate LCA
  • Conduct and compare LCA by product category
  • Analyze LCA results within the industry
  • Material & End-of-life stages
    – Change product structure through value-engineering (VE)
    – Change materials including using recycled materials and low embodied carbon materials
  • Use stage
    – Reduce standby power by updating SW
    – Reduce power consumption by changing chip and redesigning PCB art work
  • Benchmarking: Assess and secure reduction techniques
  • Other stages
    – Distribution: Manage logistic service providers (LSP) via agency contracts
    – Production: Build GHG inventory and adopt reduction activities
  • Minimize environmental impacts with eco-design
    – Analyze carbon emissions during product design
    – Embody eco-design in new product design (NPG) process


HUMAX has created its GHG inventory system at headquarters and obtained verification from a professional organization.

Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory

Indentify the sources of directly and indirectly accumulated greenhouse gas emissions. Then assess and verify the greenhouse gas emissions according to international standards.

Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP)

HUMAX has been disclosing information related to climate change and greenhouse gas emissions to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) since 2013. HUMAX has set its reduction targets to 2050, based on science-based targets.

Carbon Footprint Labeling

Korean Carbon Footprint Labeling

Korean Carbon Footprint Labeling is a voluntary carbon footprint certification issued by Korea Environmental Industry & Technology Institute (KEITI), an affiliate of the Ministry of Environment. The labeling displays the effect on the environment (global warming) during a product’s life cycle.
