Association

To fulfill corporate social responsibility and comply with the expectation of stakeholders, we have fully assessed and aggressively participated in various domestic and international organizations and programs to resolutely assume our corporate social responsibility with corporations from within or outside the industry, making contributions to sustainability issues. The table below lists the associations ASUS participates in and values, and also provides an overview of ASUS' involvement:

ASUS joins BCSD, Computer Associations in Taiwan, and CGCA to learn about sustainable issues with others. In addition to seeking opportunities for sustainable cooperation from companies within or outside the industries, ASUS also provides industry resources to and share the experiences to extend the brand influence and thus drives domestic enterprises to enhance their sustainable competitiveness.

In ASUS, we value the corporate governance and internal management. We join The Institute of Internal Auditors and have been attending the regular meeting, seminars, and experience sharing conference. These help us to strengthen the theories and practices of corporate governance in all aspects, as well as the integration of risk management and system to help reduce operational risks.

ASUS is the member of Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) and is committing to give full support to its Code of Conduct and promoting CSR to the supply chain, including but not limited to: respecting for labor and human rights, establishing a healthy and safe work environment, promoting eco-friendly processes. In addition, we request our tier-one suppliers to comply with the RBA Code of Conduct together and continuously monitor and measure their performance, so as to achieve the RBA vision and objective.

For the issue of conflict minerals, ASUS joins RBA to form Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) with Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) and supports Conflict-Free Smelter Program (CFSP). In addition, the conflict minerals reporting template is used to perform due diligence and disclose the information on the investigation of the supply chain, and ASUS will provide questions specific to industry and recommendations to address the problems.

The scope and issue of conflict minerals have expanded across the world. We apply for membership of the Sustainable Trade Initiative (IDH) and join Indonesian Tin Working Group (ITWG), teaming up with enterprises within the information and communication technology (ICT) industry to reduce the ecological impacts caused by the tin mining in Indonesia.
