AcBel firmly believes that the success of an enterprise comes from the support of the society. When an enterprise is successful, what it has taken from the society must be used in the society.
In the company's vision of "We Power the World - Become a Positive Energy for a Sustainable Cycle," our social participation is centered on "Caring for the Environment and Ecology, Taking Care of the Disadvantaged, and Becoming a Supporter of Positive Social Forces." AcBel's social participation in the local community is underlined by the fundamental concept of “Humanity”. By accumulating spontaneous strength from supply chains, employees and their families, various resources are put into social participation and actively integrated into the local community, including Caring for Local Communities, Practice of Environmental Protection and Education Sprouting, jointly implementing goals of "Caring for Education, Environmental Protection, Localization and Future Fulfillment."
In response to climate change, AcBel attaches importance to environmental sustainability. Starting from 2021, we will incorporate the important material topic of water resources regarding environmental sustainability issues into our social participation actions to protect precious water resources together.

Starting from caring for the locals, including education support for disadvantaged children in schools, caring for the local environment and ecology, etc., we will practice our determination to invest in social welfare.
Volunteering Leave with Pay / Charity Leave
