Advantest Taiwan Inc. (ATI) participated in the coastal cleaning activity on June 5th. This activity was hosted by the Bureau of Environmental Protection in Hsinchu City (Taiwan), and its objectives included the protection of marine resources and the reduction of CO2 emissions by reducing the amount of waste.
A total of twenty ATI employees and their families, as well as about fifty organizations, participated in this activity. They picked up garbage on the coast for two and a half hours from 8:30 to 11:00 in the morning. The garbage they picked up included not only empty cans and waste paper but also what appears to be illegally-dumped large trash, which damaged the beautiful landscape and the nature of the coast.
The participants were drenched with sweat during the cleaning activity in strong sunlight, but they were extremely satisfied with the fact that that they were able to be part of the activity to protect the global environment.
ATI hopes to continue its proactive participation in the activities to protect nature and wants to learn the importance of our environment with its employees and their families in the future.
