Supplier Sustainability Management
We consider suppliers our important partners and expect our suppliers to offer fair terms and safe working conditions to their employees. ASE does not condone the employment of child labor or forced labor by our suppliers. Any supplier found non-compliant will be removed from our supplier list. No contracts were terminated due to the use of child labor or forced labor in 2017.
Supplier Sustainability Management Approach
To fulfill ASE Group Purchasing and Supply Chain Development Policy and Commitment, we conduct a four-stage approach to promote suppliers' sustainability performance.
Supplier Sustainability Requirement
To ensure all suppliers comply with the "ASE Group Supplier Code of Conduct", we require our new suppliers to sign the "ASE Group Supplier Code of Conduct Commitment Letter" and complete our sustainability risk assessment questionnaire covering regulatory compliance, sustainable management, conflict minerals management, environmental protection, health and safety, labor rights, human rights, etc., to assess sustainability risks associated with new suppliers or conduct the on-site audit to make sure their risk. We also encourage all suppliers to obtain international certification standards such as ISO 9001, ISO/TS 16949, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, ISO 14064-1, etc.
Supplier Sustainability Risk Assessment
ASE conducts a supplier sustainability risk assessment via a three-stage approach annually.
In 2017, we investigated the sustainable risk status of more than 1000 suppliers and we have 70% of tier 1 suppliers complete sustainability risk assessment questionnaire. ASE conducts a supplier sustainability risk assessment via a three-stage approach annually to identify potential high-risk suppliers in the three aspects (economic, environmental and social). In the next year, we will conduct the audits of suppliers with higher potential risk and assistance will be provided to ensure that risks could be effectively controlled and reduced.
