【Sustainable Supply Base】Accelerated Realization of Net Zero Emission Goals through Digital Transformation to Optimize Sustainable Supply Chains

Special Report on Sustainability
One of the primary priorities of Wistron's sustainable development strategy is to lay out a sustainable supply chain. We comprehensively promote the sustainable improvement of the supply chain with three strategies, "Implementation of corporate responsibility", "Compliance with international standards" and "Moving Towards Sustainable Environment". Meanwhile, digital management systems and knowledge sharing platforms are built to create innovative and sustainable value. They are provided to supply chain managers for data collection and analysis, supplier information transparency and feedback channels in order to optimize the supplier management platform.


1Implementation of Corporate Responsibility

Every supplier is required to comply with the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) guidelines. The goal is to fully complete the signing of 4-in-1 documents, including statement of non-use of environmentally hazardous substances, RBA statement of code of conduct for responsible business alliances, statement of non-use of conflict minerals, and letter of integrity policy. In this way, the legitimacy of the source of raw materials is ensured to lay the foundation for sustainable development.


2 Compliance with
International Standards

The supply chain is promoted to introduce the ISO50001 energy management system to ensure that our suppliers operate with energy in a more efficient way. Energy efficiency is improved by establishing standard processes, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, we continue to implement ISO14064-1 greenhouse gas emission verification. The data verification results are transparent and credible through inspection units that
provide a third-party notarization.


3 Moving Towards
Sustainable Environment

Wistron prioritizes the inventory of carbon emissions from supplier with high carbon emission in response to the CDP and Science based target (SBT) of international initiatives. We promote the project of Scope 3 carbon reduction in upstream, and the inventory results are used as the SBTi reduction benchmark to set our suppliers' carbon reduction targets in the future.
