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 2015), 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 2018, there was no difference categories of key stakeholders compared to 2017.

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 GRI Standards 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 2018, a total of 164 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 seventeen issues were identified as material issues, including Economic Performance, Customer Privacy, Environmental Compliance, Employment, , Effluents, Customer Health and Safety, Chimney Emissions, Socioeconomic Compliance, Patent Right, Waste, Anti-competitive Behavior, Labor/Management Relations, Water, Occupational Safety and Health, Greenhouse Gases, Training and Education, and Energy. For these material issues, 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-level of concerns, we also carefully selected their indicators for the disclosure of relevant information.
