Sustainability Committee

As a citizen of planet Earth, social and environmental responsibility have always been important to AUO and form a part of our corporate spirit. AUO has incorporated Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) into our business strategy and elevated it to Corporate Sustainability Responsibility, which includes company policy, business management models, policy directions, and planning on education and training. AUO also upholds is commitment to sustainable development through the corporate governance, talent development, innovative technologies, green commitment and social engagement aspects. These not only enhance the corporate culture at CSR but also maximize the benefits for customers and stakeholders.

 

To improve our management efficiency in CSR, consolidate our resources and live up to stakeholder expectations on corporate governance, environmental protection and social care, AUO integrated our environmental, social and corporate governance operations in 2013 to establish the trans-department Corporate Sustainability Responsibility Committee (CSR Committee).The new committee promotes the sustainable development of AUO through a comprehensive approach to planning and alignment with international developments.

 

In 2014, the AUO Board of Directors voted to adopt the four key guidelines: “Code of Ethical Management”, “Corporate Governance Principles”, “Code of Ethical Conduct for Directors and Senior Management”, and “Corporate Social Responsibility Best Practice Principles.” The CSR Best Practice Principles in particular makes the CSR Committee answerable to the Board of Directors, the employee performance evaluation system should be connected to the CSR policy, and that it is covered by the rules governing rewards and disciplinary action under AUO HR management regulations. The Board also passed 12 articles of the “AUO Corporate Sustainability Policy” at the start of 2015. The sustainability policy encompassing the three aspects of the economy, society and environment defines the direction for sustainable development at AUO. In the end of 2017, AUO has upgraded the transformation of CSR committee 2.0 to enhance core driving forces and competitive advantages so as to follow up with the global CSR trend.
