Green innovation

Since MediaTek’s chipsets power a variety of end devices, environmental considerations are included at all stages in the design. We aim to reduce our impact on the environment during usage and disposal by minimizing power consumption and the physical size.

Usage

Enhancement of energy efficiency: We have lowered 11% of power consumption of end devices powered by MediaTek in 2020 (cf. 2019). Based on the shipment volume of the year, MediaTek contributed to the energy conservation of devices powered by our products by 294 million kWh of electricity per year, the equivalent of 155,526 tons of carbon emissions, the carbon storage capacity of 255,269 acres of US forests in a year, or 25,090 American homes’ energy use for one yearNote

Note: Electricity emission factor (0.509 kg CO2e/kWh) is based on data released by the Taiwan Bureau of Energy. Other conversions reference the Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency, where every year, 0.82 metric tons CO2 is sequestered by each acre of average US forest and an average American household consumes 8.30 metric tons CO2.

Disposal

Minimization of chip designs: We have reduced the size of our IC products by 11% in 2020 (cf. 2019), equivalent to 21,890 kg of waste, or 45 tons carbon emissionsNote.

Note: Conversion based on the parameters set by the Environmental Protection Administration of Taiwan, where 1kg of waste production increases 2.06kg of carbon emission
