Continuous Learning and Improvement
We have only one Earth! Any upheaval is a relevant and meaningful wake-up call that challenges a business entity to strive for better operation.
Amid the current pandemic, environmental landscape shifts, unpredictable climate risks, energy supply crises, and changes in the industry’s developments, I am very pleased to see that WT Microelectronics’ team achieved a new record of business revenue once again in 2021.
It is particularly important to note that, in the face of the global focus on ESG, the Earth’s sustainability is the sustainability of business, and that sustainability is our daily pursuit. The Earth nurtures all things, and all things are contained in one planet. As a link in the supply chain and engaging in economic activities on the planet, we as human beings advocate not to harm the Earth, but to work hard and coexist with the environment, respect each other, and expand our enterprise’s care for our planet’s sustainability.
This year, first and foremost, we set up the “WT Microelectronics’ ESG Sustainable Development Group” and the Group Director position. The roles of the job are assuming responsibility for the coordination and the planning of economic, environmental and social sustainability issues, keeping abreast of ESG trends and inter-departmental cooperation, and eventually perfectly implanting ESG policies in Taiwan that align with international guidelines.
I firmly commit to doing what is right. Sustainability is not just a cost but the key to survival. Only when we’re willing to invest in the future, we will not be eliminated by our times. Global uncertainty was extremely high in 2021 due to COVID-19, and we continue to cope with the fallout from new variants since the initial outbreaks in 2020. We are learning how to respond to changes and adapt accordingly in both good times and bad.
The world is changing so fast that the rebound of the global economy as a whole will produce an uneven development trend and urge us to pay attention to the environment, society, and corporate governance. Each key and its linkages will require the consensus and communication of each member of the organization to contribute to the efforts bit by bit.
WT’s ranking in the top 5% of Taiwan’s corporate governance assessment for two consecutive years (2020 and 2021) is encouraging and recognition of the company’s achievements. There is still room for improvement in four major assessment indicators in four major assessment indicators, including safeguarding shareholders’ interests, strengthening the structure and operation of the Board of Directors, enhancing information transparency and implementing corporate social responsibility. Our team has been recognized for their hard work and will continue to play a key role in the face of various challenges and changes in the future.
No one is excluded from the impact of global climate change. We must leverage the enterprise’s advantages and choose an active learning journey so that each employee can grow in his or her career and the enterprise can grow strong and stable, as well as contribute to the needs of the environment and society along with our country’s policy. Every step we take now is a cornerstone for a sustainable future for WT’s sustainable future.
