Optoelectronics Industry has such feature of complete supply chain of upstream, middle stream and downstream. As one of global manufacturers of LCD panels, IVO has the responsibility and obligation to promote green environment and environmental protection through its strength in R&D and purchase. We would comply with the requirement of “Restriction of Hazardous Substance” in global scope. On Feb.16, 2009, we obtained DNV’s ISO14001:2004 system certificate. Protecting the environment and earth is the eternal mission of IVO.
IVO’s R&D excludes the use of hazardous substances restricted by international community and each country from the design and material selection stage. In addition to substances prohibited by environmental protection laws and regulations of each country, we also plan to gradually rule out the use of bromine-based chemicals (Br) and chlorine-based chemicals (Cl). We expect to comprehensively use hazardous substances-free products since the middle of 2009.
IVO established standard material acknowledgement procedure and new supplier acknowledgement procedure, which could not only avoid the use of hazardous chemicals but also promote the whole industry to establish green supply chain.
