Human Rights Due Diligence

Human Rights Due Diligence

Wistron's Global Human Rights Policy

Wistron has established the Human Rights Policy to demonstrate our support and compliance with international labor standards and key global standards such as the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs), ILO Tripartite Declaration of Principles, ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the UN Global Compact, and the RBA Code of Conduct. The policy expressly specifies all stakeholders of the Company as the applicable targets, including the Company, the supply chain, partners, and joint ventures. The policy also clearly expresses and explains the commitments to human rights and related management principles.

Wistron has started audit and certification process in accordance with the standards of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) in all global operations to ensure that the Company maintains consistent framework and compliance standards in the management of global human rights issues (Please see the Wistron Human Rights Management Framework). No Wistron operations had serious human rights violations in 2021.

Establish Human Rights Due Diligence Management Procedures

Wistron established human rights management procedures in 2020 to ensure that all global operations follow human rights management policies in the day-to-day work of all executives and employees. Items 1 to 4 were completed in 2020. The remaining items 5 to 8 were gradually completed in 2021.

Based on the results of the human rights risk assessment in 2020, Wistron implemented target management for three major human rights issues in 2021, requiring each plant to stipulate risk reducing measures and periodically track the attainment of related indicators. For example, the Company conducts monthly tracking of the improvements to “1 day off every 7 days”, “less than 60 total working hours every week”, and “remuneration accuracy” in all plants through the system developments. Wistron also implements safety training, education and promotion and improves the frequency of equipment/environment inspections, in order to reduce the occurrence of work related injuries and occupational illness.

With regard to the business scope of the Company (e.g., employees, direct business activities, and products and services), Wistron plans to execute a comprehensive human rights due diligence management cycle for global operations each year starting from 2022. This measure is aimed to create a consistent culture and code of conduct for the Group to effectively manage and reduce human rights risks and respond to the Company's policies and the expectations of stakeholders.
