(2) Reduce unnecessary packaging and develop recyclable or reusable packaging materials.
(3) Strengthen education and publicity to raise awareness and awareness of waste management and reduction, and promote waste reduction.
Achievement: Greenhouse gas, water consumption and waste reduction targets were set for the first time this year, and the achievement status of each year will be reviewed in subsequent years.
