Stakeholder Management

Identification of Stakeholder Engagement

Aiming at sustainable development and long-term operation, Winbond identifies its stakeholders based on the five major principles of the AA1000 SES (Stakeholder Engagement Standard 2011), including Dependency, Responsibility, Influence, Tension, and Diverse Perspectives. Seven categories of key stakeholders are identified, including employees, government, clients/distributors, suppliers/subcontractors, shareholders/investors, banks/financial institutions, and media. In 2017, there was no difference categories of key stakeholders compared to 2016.

Identification of Material Aspects

Based on Winbond’s corporate culture and business philosophy and according to the definition and categorization of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) and the Sustainability Report Guideline (G4) published by the Global Sustainability Report Association (GRI), the CSR Implementation Committee summarizes the sustainability issues from economic, environmental, and societal aspects.

To understand the stakeholders’ level of concern in terms of the sustainability issues, we conducted a survey with the corresponding organizations of the stakeholders by means of interview or questionnaire. The participants were asked to rate their “level of concern of sustainability issues” on a 5-point scale with 5-Extremely concerned, 4-highly concerned, 3-somewhat concerned, 2-slightly concerned, and 1-not at all concerned. During 2017, a total of 127 questionnaires were returned. Similarly, for the question “the impact of sustainability issues on Winbond’s operations,” the Company’s high level management were asked to rate the level of impact on a 5-point scale.

The substantial analytical results show that twelve issues were identified as material issues, including Economic Performance, Customer Health and Safety, Emissions, Customer Privacy, Water, Product and Service Labeling, Compliance (Environmental), Compliance(Social), Energy, Patent Right, Training and Education, Employment. When considering these material issues under the GRI G4 guidelines, DMA (Disclosure on Management Approach) and indicators related to management policy are selected as the main aspect for disclosure. For issues of low and medium concern, we continue to communicate and respond to our stakeholders and conduct management as well as demonstrate the results in the chapters concerning product responsibility, environmental sustainability and team accountability, including Compliance (Production), Procurement Practices, Overall, Effluents and Waste, Occupational Health and Safety, Equal Remuneration for Women and Men…etc.
