Sustainable Development Goals
Sustainable Management Structure
AcBel complies with government’s regulations and authority’s requirement to set up CSR Committee, which is teamed up by high-level management executives with five functional organizations based on different job titles and duties. The committee is responsible for promoting related ESG sustainable endeavors of the company and integrates them into daily operation, with regular report of measure and performance to the board of directors, contributing to corporate governance and fulfillment of social and environment responsibility.
Stakeholder Identification and Analysis of Material Topics
AcBel complies with four major principles: stakeholder inclusiveness, sustainability context, materiality and completeness based on Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards through four steps of identification, prioritization, validation and review. We systematically select the sustainability material the stakeholders pay attention to and apply the results as the disclosure foundation for this report, as well as take the feedback as AcBel’s sustainable guidelines and execution plan in response to the needs and expectation of the stakeholders.
We define stakeholders as internal/external groups or individuals that are significantly affected by company activities, products and services based on Stakeholder theory and AA1000 SES (AA1000 Stakeholder Engagement Standard) and identify 8 types of stakeholders, in which seven types are consistent with those of 2019 with media newly added in 2020.
2020 Sustainable Material Topic Matrix
(1) Taiwan’s headquarters carried out the separation of factory and operation office in 2020, and hence the impact boundary included new office building in Qiyan. There were no major changes in operating production plants and there was no significant difference in the production processes and product categories of each plant area; therefore, the impact boundary remains the same as the previous year.
(2) Except for turning material topics of "Waste (306)" and "Labor/Management Relations (402)" from last year to the secondary issues, there are no significant changes in the material topics of 2020.
With the increasing awareness of human right, employees increasingly value the safety of workspace. The stakeholders are more focused on Occupational Health and Safety this year, in which how the company protects labors’ safety and creates a healthy and safe workspace would be continuously paid attention to.
Secondary issues that may have impacts in the future are Labor/Management Relations, Waste, Environmental Compliance, etc. AcBel 2020 Sustainability report will disclose related management of secondary material topics and other general topics. The corresponding chapter of each topic can be referred to in the non-material topics index.
Communication Channels with Stakeholders
Through the company's real-time and diverse channels of communication to exchange views on sustainable development, we respond to material topics with related guidelines and performance, elevating interaction and transparency of information disclosure. In terms of internal communication, various workshops or seminars are held to increase and internalize SDGs awareness of our employees, thus building sustainable and innovative thinking pattern within AcBel.
We will continue to improve in a responsible manner for issues that have not yet reached the expectations of stakeholders, and regularly submit communication report to the Board of Directors, so as to meet the company's goal of sustainable development.
