Restriction of Hazardous Substances

Getac Kunshan, which specializes in the assembly of electronic products has incorporated the IECQ QC 080000 Hazardous Substance Process Management (HSPM) system for electrical and electronic components and products, and complies with international directives for environmental protection, including the REACH, Substance of Very High Concern (SVHC), and RoHS, to prevent the use of materials, parts, or products containing hazardous substance which would otherwise impact the ecosystem.

In 2021, all incoming materials passed the inspection, and no hazardous substances were found. Products produced by automotive plants are die-casting metal parts composed of aluminum alloys and are not end products. 100% of the automotive parts produced and metal materials purchased in 2020 complied with the specifications of automobile customers and were also in line with national environmental protection regulations and the EU Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS).

Better Than International Environmental Protection And Safety Standards

In 2021, all of Getac’s products complied with international environmental regulations. As required by product environmental regulations adopted in the country of origin of the product, electronic products were certified by international safety standards, in compliance with regulations on product safety, radio frequency, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), and other safety issues adopted in the country of origin (e.g., UL and FCC in the U.S., CE and RED in the EU, and BSMI in Taiwan). Our products or packages are labeled with information on safety regulations, energy conservation, and environmental communication certification. There were no violations of product labeling regulations.

For the needs of special industries, such as the pharmaceutical, chemical, and petroleum industries, some models are on the initiative certified for high-standard safety standards. For example, the EX-80 rugged tablet has passed the strict explosive environmental standard test and received the European standard ATEX & IECEx Zone 0/20 and UL913 Class I/II Division 1 Certification.

Energy-conservation And Electricity-saving Design

As one of the world’s leading manufacturers of rugged computers, the products produced by Getac Holdings Corporation are widely used by the government agencies of all countries and large international corporations. The Rugged Computing Solutions sold by Getac Holdings Corporation not only provide superior ruggedness but also equipped with high performing endurance and the energy-saving design conforms to the latest international energy saving design and specification requirements, such as Energy Star 8.0 and energy performance regulations enforced by the U.S. Energy Information Administration and the California Energy Commission and is verified according to the requirements of Energy Star through Design Quality Verification (DQA) Department. This ensures that low energy consumption design specifications allow users to save a large amount of unnecessary energy consumption.

The average power consumption of the twelve main models sold by Getac in 2021 is lower than the standard value of Energy Star by 7.88 KWh/yr. After multiplying this by the number of units sold in the year, it is estimated that the rugged computers sold by Getac in 2021 can save at least 677 metric tons of carbon dioxide emission equivalent. Demonstrate Getac’s efforts and achievements in energy-saving design.

Reduce Electronic Waste

Getac’s system products comply with the WEEE requirements. On each of our products, we not only mark the products are recyclable and provide instructions on how to dismantle the products. We also commission local certified vendors in European regions to recycle our products. When recycling our products, they can be easily disassembled for re-use, which reduces resource waste. Furthermore, Getac products are designed following Energy related Products (EuP) directives and Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) standards.


Sustainable Supply Chain

Getac believes that effective supply chain management stems from close cooperation with suppliers. By sharing risks and benefits, we can increase operational efficiency through information system optimization, shortening the duration of delivery and reducing environmental costs, thereby achieving increased customer satisfaction and creating the best product and service experience.

Supplier Sustainable Management

In addition to the traditional TQRDC standards, Getac follows the RBA regulations on sustainability issues. Through our contract management mechanism, the company includes sustainability-related issues, such as environmental protection, customer health and safety, anti-corruption, and intellectual property rights, in its standard purchase order (PO) and in its Master Purchase Agreement. Getac’s raw material suppliers must sign a statement stating their understanding of the terms and conditions of our standard PO, which states that the supplier must agree to the following statements and guarantees related to sustainability issues.

The company also asks suppliers to sign the Master Purchase Agreement, which requires suppliers and upstream suppliers to fulfill environmental responsibilities, respect labor rights, avoid the use of conflict minerals, engage in ethical management, and adopt sustainability practices. If suppliers violate any of the requirements, Getac reserves the right to terminate the contract and request for a penalty fine 10 times the amount of the damage and product orders.

Supplier Due Diligence

We design the supplier sustainability questionnaire with reference to the Responsible Business Alliance Code of Conduct. The supplier sustainability questionnaire survey has been conducted once a year since 2019, to understand the sustainability performance and legal compliance of the partners in the supply chain. We integrated the sustainability questionnaire within the existing electronic supplier platform in 2021 to incorporate the survey in the system. A certificate and data uploading unit has been added to encourage suppliers to provide more management system certificates, including ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001, water quality test report, CSR report, and carbon emission data. We improve the quality of the supply chain through dissemination and guidance every year.

In 2022, Getac Holdings and subsidies conducted a 2021 sustainability survey to 751 suppliers, and 91% of them participated in the ESG self-evaluation questionnaire survey, 96% of them signed the letter of commitment to corporate social responsibility. As the result of the survey shows, 93% of the suppliers have undergone and passed the inspection performed by a third party on the CSR related issues. 93% of them ensured the compliance of the CSR among their supply chains by implementing self-evaluation questionnaire survey and internal or on-site audit.

Responsible Minerals

The Company promises to work with suppliers to take responsibility for social and environmental protection, support and comply with the Responsible Minerals initiative and not use conflict minerals mined through human rights abuses or armed coercion, especially gold, Tantalum, tungsten, tin, cobalt, mica and other minerals or their derivatives mined in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and its neighboring countries. The suppliers will fulfill the aforementioned statement and will notify the Company and provide evidence to assist in the investigation of sources of minerals and the production and sale supervision process.
