Yulon Group says it has been committed to sustainable development for 70 years, such as Yulon Motor’s practical actions to protect Taiwan’s native species and biodiversity. Since 2022, a native tree species restoration park has been planned in the Sanyi Factory area, working with Taiwan Reforestation Association to jointly plan and build the ‘Yulon Mountain Villa’, and referring to the Forestry Bureau’s survey of Taiwan’s native plants for seed collection and seedling cultivation by volunteers. So far, 16 investigation spots, 209 woody plants records, 99 seeds collection have been completed, and 1,288 seedlings are being restored.
Through the restoration of native tree species in Taiwan’s lowland forests, the natural forest gene pool is preserved, promoting the maintenance of diversity among native tree species.
E.SUN published the ‘Climate and Environmental Report’ in 2022. In addition to the net-zero goal, E.SUN says it will keep on providing financial products and services to assist industries and customers in sustainable transformation, guiding capital flows towards environmental sustainability, preventing biodiversity loss, and reversing the damage caused by economic activities to nature. By actually linking the environmental targets into finance, E.SUN says it is achieving natural positive growth and business growth together with its customers.
