Nanya contributes to Taiwan's economic growth and promotes sustainability by partnering with our supply chain to improve business operations in different aspects, from technology, quality, environmental protection, human rights, safety, and hygiene. For the independence of advanced process technologies development, Nanya has successfully developed core cell technology for the 10nm class DRAM process, which will enable the sustainability of its DRAM products for at least three generations and the offering of next-generation DDR5 and LPDDR5 products. As an advocator of green manufacturing, we insist on producing sustainable products with high quality and low energy consumptions. Products sold last year helped consumers saved 409.52 million kWh electricity, which is equivalent to 561 Daan Forest Parks’ CO2 annual absorption capacity.
Employees are the key partner for our sustainable business. We strengthen the unity and harmony of all employees by promoting and fulfilling our core values.
