The BSI Group, also known as the British Standards Institution, is a business standards company that develops standards and provides its services to companies to improve performance, reduce risk and achieve sustainability.
The annual BSI awards ceremony was held on December 23rd in Taipei and was an opportunity for member companies to discuss the implications of the recently concluded Paris COP 21 Conference on Climate Change.
This year, ASE has also signed up to report to CDP, an international not-for-profit organization which holds the most comprehensive set of global corporate environmental data, on the following commitments.
- Commitment to climate change information in mainstream reports as a fiduciary duty
- Commitment to responsible corporate engagement in climate policy
Companies that disclose to CDP are able to demonstrate 1) their increased awareness of greenhouse gas emissions hot spots so that they can begin to reduce them, 2) business leadership in understanding the risks from climate change, deforestation and water scarcity, 3) how they are creating opportunities to innovate and generate revenue from sustainable products and services, 4) how they are future-proofing their business from climate change and water impacts.
In 2008, ASE and 23 leading companies in Taiwan launched the “Taiwan Corporate Sustainability Forum (TCSF)”. The objective of this forum is to encourage voluntary sharing of information relating to environment and sustainability and to also actively reflect public opinions and strengthening the communication channel between the private sector and the go vernment agencies. On June 30th, 2015, the BCSD (Business Council for Sustainable Development) and TCSF presented the “Energy and Climate Policy White Paper” to the go vernment.
ASE is honored to be recognized for its efforts in adopting world class standards to achieve corporate sustainability and is highly motivated to invest its resources locally in Taiwan and globally, to manage business risks and protecting the environment for our next generation.
