A Greener World
We care where we live, and dedicate ourselves to make it healthy and green.


CSR > PureGMS > Restriction and Forbidden Use of Hazardous Substances
In order to produce more environmental friendly products, our company clearly defines division of works and responsibilities, develops green management and hazardous substances free technical standards and builds eGreen IT platform to collect hazardous substance free data from suppliers. We also announce the requirements and standards in Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) platform and hold internal and external trainings for these requirements.

Chemical Substance Management

To maintain human health and protect environment, we comply with the requirements of customers and regulatory, and strictly require our suppliers to restrict or forbid their use of listed controlled substances. For example, all Pegatron’s products comply with the requirements of RoHS directive.

In addition, TBBP-A (Tetrabromobisphenol-A, C12H12Br4O2, CAS-No. 79-94-7) is a Brominates Flame-Retardant (BFR) and harmful to human health and ecosystems. So our company requests covers, casings, electronic components and other internal plastic parts of all our products must be concentration less than or equal to 0.1% (1000 ppm) of TBBP-A. And we commit to avoid use cables, connectors, and PCBs which contain TBBP-A used in our products.
