Over the next 20 years, businesses will be exposed to numerous environmental and social changes that will bring both risks and opportunities in the search for sustainable growth. Among these changes, we especially focus on megatrends in sustainability critical to our business development, including Climate Change, Energy & Fuel, Material Resource Scarcity, Water Scarcity, Population Growth and Supply Chain Globalization Challenges. We address the aforementioned megatrends in sustainability though an integrated and dynamic strategic framework (as shown below) developed based upon our value creation model. The strategic framework defines ASE’s four strategic pillars- Low Carbon, Circular, Inclusive and Collaborative, and corresponding strategic directions.
Contributing to global sustainable development
ASE's long-term sustainability strategy not only creates sustainable values for both ASE and the society, but also helps meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We considered how ASE can contribute to SDGs based on our core value, and then prioritized eight SDGs (as shown below) that are in line with our strategy.
