Corporate Social Responsibility Policy
Winbond insists that all its operations and managerial activities must align with corporate social responsibility. Through enhancing employee training and internal control, we make sure to comply with business ethics and government laws. In the meantime, we continue to pursue improvements in quality management and environmental protection, dedicate ourselves to social welfare, and maintain good communications with our stakeholders. We expect all our business partners to support and comply with the requirements of corporate social responsibility.

Corporate Social Responsibility Implementation Committee

Winbond has restructured the current “Winbond Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Implementation Committee” into the Sustainability Development Committee in May 2022. The level of committee is raised to the level of the Board of Directors. It shall be composed of several directors and five to seven executive managers from relevant departments including the President. The term of the directors is the same as the term of the Board of Directors. Under the Sustainability Development Committee, we established the Sustainability Office and five task forces, including Environmental Sustainability, Green Products, Human Rights and Social Inclusion, Sustainable Supply Chain, and Corporate Governance, thereby ensuring the promotion and implementation of works related to corporate sustainability.

Fair Trade

All WEC employees shall by no means engage in any anti-competitive business activities. WEC insists on fair trade and industry competition, abides by applicable government laws, decrees and ordinances. Obey the Antitrust as our stander of conduct, and endeavors to establish a trust-worthy and respectable reputation.
