To fulfil CSR and comply with the expectations of stakeholders, we have fully assessed and aggressively participated in various domestic and international organizations and programs to resolutely assume our CSR with corporations from within or outside the industry, contributing to sustainability issues. The table below lists the associations ASUS participates in and values, providing 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.

ASUS is now the Full member of Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) and is committing to give full support to RBA 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.

Eight major technology companies including ASUS, AUO, Delta Electronics, Pegatron, TSMC, Lite-On, Acer, and Microsoft have formed the Taiwan Climate Partnership (TCP) with the aim of using their influence on their suppliers to lead the supply chain in Taiwan keeping up with international initiatives for carbon emissions reduction. TCP leverages the power of partners in the alliance to connect with international initiatives such as RE100 and CDP, monitor global trends in countering climate change, and introduce new initiatives to Taiwan. As a founding member, ASUS is committed to supporting supply chain partners in attaining the carbon reduction targets by increasing energy efficiency and promoting low-carbon manufacturing.
