Since 2015, FET had advocated for the public's awareness on environmental issues through developing environmental education schemes centered around "Cherish the Earth, Spread Love Far" program. The Company also focuses on three major core actions, namely, establishing FET's green culture, promoting environmental green education, and advocating consumer green responsibility to respond to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including SDG 4 quality education, SDG 13 climate action, and SDG 14 life below water. In 2019, FET conveyed the awareness of environmental protection through various environmental education activities ranging from organizing an Environmental Film Festival, producing environmental conservation animation video, coastal clean-up, to calling on FET employees for beach cleanup. At the same time, FET also encourages employees, suppliers, and the general public to undertake environmental protection actions through providing various programs and anticipates that the public and FET can join forces to fulfill our responsibilities as citizens of this world.
Every year, FET regularly promotes internal activities related to environmental protection and energy saving in "Green Carnival", including body slimming in office environment, organizing a vegan week, environmental education seminars, and promoting energy-saving tips.
