2022 Charity Activity

Environmental Sustainability Initiatives

"Do One Thing for Tamsui River" Initiative

As a local company originating from Tamsui in New Taipei City, AcBel continues the "Do One Thing for Tamsui River" initiative, which was initiated by the Commonwealth magazine in 2020 as part of its CSR@Commonwealth program. In 2022, we organized a "Citizen Nature Ecological Visits" activity aimed at expanding the impact of environmental education and raising awareness about ecological diversity. A total of 25 employees and their family members participated in the visit to Banqiao Xinhai Artificial Wetland in New Taipei City, an important man-made wetland along the Dahan River. During the visit, the participants rediscovered local plants such as water lilies, water hyacinths, and cattails, and actively participated in removing invasive species like water spinach and water lettuce. Through this hands-on experience at the forefront of ecology, our employees and their families deepened their awareness and appreciation for environmental conservation.

Ecological Protection Activity

"Leopard Cat Watershed Restoration Project - Rice Field Contract Farming "

Continuing our support for social enterprise innovation and the conservation of biodiversity, in alignment with the "Leopard Cat Rice Watershed Restoration" initiative in 2020, AcBel actively engaged in environmentally friendly rice cultivation practices to support local farmers in Miaoli County in 2022. We purchased a total of 6,528 catties (approximately 3,826 kilograms) of Leopard Cat Rice. The harvested white rice was distributed to underprivileged families and provided to each employee, aiming to inspire everyone's commitment to ecological sustainability. This project has also received the "Buying Power Social Innovation Product and Service Procurement Award - Support Award" from the Ministry of Economic Affairs for two consecutive years.

"Joining Farmers in Field" Leopard Cat Rice Transplanting Experience

In order to raise awareness for the protection of the critically endangered Leopard Cats, a native felid species in Taiwan, AcBel collaborated with a social enterprise to organize the "Joining Farmers in Rice Field" Leopard Cat Rice Transplanting Experience. A group of 39 employees and their families were guided through a visit to the Formosan Leopard Cat Rice cultivation area in Miaoli. Through on-site biodiversity tours and informative presentations, participants gained a better understanding of the balanced coexistence between ecosystems and human life.

Coastal Adoption and Beach Cleanup Activities

Since 2020, AcBel has been participating in the Environmental Protection Administration's "Beach Adoption Program" by adopting a 450-meter stretch of Zhuzi Bay Beach, located near our factory in Tamsui, New Taipei City. In 2022, we extended our adoption to cover a 600-meter length of coastline. We also encouraged our colleagues and their families to join us in marine environmental conservation efforts. Through two beach cleanup activities, we collected a total of 121 kilograms of marine debris, demonstrating our common commitment to protecting the beauty of local rivers and coastline. We also encouraged our employees to enjoy the beauty of the natural environment by visiting this beach with their families during their leisure time.

With a focus on "water resources," we led the students to visit the Taipei Water Department Environmental Education Center, where they had the opportunity to learn about the water treatment process firsthand and understood the impact of individual water usage on water resources through games. From 2018 to 2022, a total of 311 elementary school children from 10 schools participated in this free green education program.
