Employee Engagement Survey

In recent years, talent risks have become a key focus of ASEH as employees form the core of the company's sustainability development and competitive advantage. To create a business environment that supports employee welfare and improves management resilience, ASEH began conducting employee engagement surveys once every two years from 2017. In 2021, we introduced a new framework and new measurement indicators, restructuring the employee survey to a sustainability engagement survey. The sustainability survey is conducted across the 3 main subsidiaries of ASEH, covering 26 factories worldwide and all employees in 8 countries (including direct and indirect employees). An indicator measuring employees' understanding of the company's ESG policy was also added to the current employee engagement survey to help us better understand their opinions. Based on employee feedback, areas of improvement in the work environment or management policies can be identified and addressed effectively. As a result, employees will feel empowered to handle greater responsibilities, embrace change and continue to make improvements, optimizing ASEH's performance in sustainability.

TCFD Report

ASEH is committed to taking mitigation and adaptation actions against climate change and internalizing climate risk management and solutions in our facilities worldwide. To facilitate our climate disclosures, we have adopted the recommendations and framework of the Financial Stability Board's Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). Our first TCFD Report, published this year, highlights our operational management and strategic actions, product development and innovation, value chain engagement and net zero goals. The report emphasizes our commitment to fulfill climate leadership in response to stakeholders' call to action and we hope to inspire more businesses around the world to join our net zero mission. Regarding our carbon reduction practices, ASEH has adopted woodlands to analyze the amount of carbon captured and stored, conduct feasibility studies and formulate device carbon sequestration strategies for the future. At the same time, we place equal importance on biodiversity risks from all aspects of our business including operations and social welfare initiatives, and we will devote considerable efforts to activities for biodiversity conservation.

Water Risk Analysis of Facilities Worldwide

To gain precise insights into water risks at our facilities worldwide, we performed a water risk analysis using the Aqueduct risk assessment tool developed by the World Resource Institute (WRI) as well as NASA's climate data. The analysis helps us to understand the water consumption and characteristics of water resources at each facility, thereby allowing us to identify areas vulnerable to the risks of water shortages. The water stress levels of the facilities are assessed in totality with regional and operational risks to determine appropriate response strategies and adaptation pathways for climate risks.

Key Highlights

In this report, we discuss our sustainability activities in 2021.

Establishing ASE Social Enterprise Co., Ltd. and Executing Social

Welfare Projects

This year, ASEH began preparations for the establishment of the ASE Social Enterprise Co., Ltd., applying an innovative business model to advance sustainable development, promote social inclusion, and address environmental problems. In memory of Madam Chang Yao Hung-Ying, the founder of the ASE Group, and her unyielding entrepreneurship, we are planning to launch a "Sustainable Entrepreneurship Competition and Dream Ambition Fulfilment Program for Women."The program is aimed at inspiring innovative thinking in women, encouraging entrepreneurship, and building an inclusive and vibrant entrepreneurial environment. In the meantime, we continued to launch campus sustainability programs, and worked with socially responsible universities to build renewable energy-powered aquaponics farms in elementary schools to promote education on sustainable food production and farming. Smart energy-saving guidance and environmental education programs are offered to schools in rural areas, helping them save more than 6% of electricity consumption. As long-term advocates of disadvantaged students who live in rural areas, we support school assistance programs such as after-school programs, to improve their learning environment and quality of life that would lead to a better future.

Information Security Management

Given the trend of digital transformation, ASEH continuously improves information technology (IT) and applies cybersecurity experiences to operational technology (OT). We started planning and conducting OT cybersecurity evaluation in stages. This involves inspections and tests by external experts to reduce any potential threats and risks in our OT cybersecurity environment. In 2021, ASEH began developing an organization-level process for classifying, reporting, and responding to cybersecurity incidents. Relevant management mechanisms will be adopted to ensure that cybersecurity incidents are handled in a timely manner so as to reduce risks and minimize the scope of damage. Recently, we planned an automated system for collecting and transmitting cybersecurity information in real-time to improve the company's overall cybersecurity capability and develop a horizontal joint defense mechanism. In light of the cybersecurity risks and challenges facing business entities, ASEH adopted a cyber liability insurance policy as the last line of defense, with risk management as the starting point. Such a policy is expected to help us respond to and control the impact of a cybersecurity incident. It provides insurance coverage to reduce any possible cybersecurity losses sustained by the company, customers, and suppliers, thereby enabling us to quickly restore business operations.
