Supply Chain Capability Enhancement

Engagement and Communication

To enhance suppliers’ awareness of sustainability issues and their ability to respond to risks, ASUS organizes supply chain conferences and education and training for individual suppliers on a regular basis to convey its management requirements in the interests of further deepening the partnership with the supply chain.

In, 2018, the supply chain conferences were held in Taipei, Shenzhen, Suzhou, and Chongqing, and all ASUS’ qualified suppliers and OEMs were invited. With “ASUS 2020 Sustainability Goals” as the theme of year 2018, ASUS’ sustainable management strategies were conveyed, including 4 issues, namely corporate sustainability, green products, supply chain management, and daily management FAQs. Short-, mid-, and long-term goals were announced, and suppliers are invited to achieve these goals with ASUS.

Corrective Action Counselling

To assist suppliers in improving the findings identified through audits, ASUS holds a quarterly counselling meeting and requires all suppliers to send representatives to participate. At the meetings, impartial third-party RBA qualified auditors are invited to analyze the reasons for the findings and share excellent cases in the industry to enhance the suppliers’ management awareness and ability to improve.

Milestone and Achievements:

Sustainable Management Evaluation

ASUS uses its branding influence and sustainable procurement to require the supply chain to work with ASUS to achieve 2020 sustainable Objectives, enhancing the performance relevant to sustainability. We will award or punish the supplier according to their level of performance, including:

  • Establish a supplier classification system: we actively implement annual risk identification on suppliers for all tiers, and the risk categories are management system, labor employment, environmental impact, and product liability. We carry out different levels of management approaches according to the level of risk. Through the supplier classification system, we encourage suppliers to invest resources in sustainable issues and continue to improve the performance.
  • The results on audit and annual survey will be included in the QBR which will be provided to the sales management team as an important reference of order allocation and evaluation on further partnership. We would decrease the amount of orders for bad suppliers when increase for good ones.
