ESG Committee

To implement ESG, the CSR Committee was established in 2008, and was renamed to ESG Committee in 2020. According to “Sustainable Development Guidelines” approved by BOD, the committee is chaired by the Chairman of Coretronic, with presidents and the CFO as members and the spokesperson as the management representative. The ESG Committee also authorizes the executive representative of economic, social, and environmental departments to assist with ESG promotion.

Currently, the ESG Committee is an independently operated unit and the management team regularly reports the implementation of ESG to the Board of Directors every year. The management team makes plans and sets goals for ESG, and regularly reviews the performance. The Board of Directors also regularly reviews and supervises the implementation of sustainable development, and urges the management team to improve when it is necessary.


The Operation of ESG Committee

  • Committee members and executive representatives review the implementation and outcomes of sustainability on a quarterly basis through briefings. Quarterly meetings are held with the ESG team, where executive representatives and ESG team members attend. Discussions are held regarding the annual ESG report published that year and various sustainability awards to formulate the sustainability plans and goals for the following year.
  • The management representative reports the progress of annual plan execution to the Chairman of the Committee, committee members, and executive representatives on a quarterly basis. They also present the annual sustainability achievements and the key sustainability focus areas and plans for the next year at the annual group meeting.
  • Committee members and executive representatives- the CFO reports to the Board of Directors annually. The report includes the accomplishments of sustainability projects, the climate change risk management framework and response strategies (TCFD), various environmental indicators, net-zero pathways, renewable energy strategies, and future directions for sustainable development.
  • We formulate sustainable policies in accordance with international and government regulations and provide training courses to the members of ESG Team to enhance their implementation of sustainability strategies.
  • The annual ESG report is compiled by the ESG Team, then submitted to the management representatives, executive representatives, and committee members for revision in sequence, and then submitted to the Chairman for review and final issue.
