ESG Committee

To implement ESG, the CSR Committee was established in 2008, and was renamed to ESG Committee in 2020. The committee is chaired by the CEO of Coretronic, with presidents and the chief financial officer (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. Members of Committee and executive representatives hold a committee meeting every quarter to audit and review the status and outcomes of ESG implementation. 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 set 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 status and results of sustainability implementation with quarterly briefings and hold annual meetings. Attended by executive representatives and others, they will discuss the sustainability report published in the current year and major sustainability awards so as to formulate sustainability plans and goals for the following year.
  • The management representative reports the implementation of the annual plan to the Chairman, committee members, and executive representatives on a quarterly basis; and further reports the annual sustainable performance and the sustainable key policy and plan for the following year at the annual Group meeting.
  • Committee member and executive representative - the CFO reports to the Board of Directors once a year. The content of the report includes the implementation results of sustainable projects, climate change risk management and strategies (TCFD), each environmental indicator, and future sustainable development.
  • 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.
