Responding to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Following the five steps found in the “Business Reporting on the SDGs,” published by the United Nations and the GRI, we were able to identify 7 goals that correlate with Wistron’s sustainability vision and charity strategy and they are as follows: SDG 1 No Poverty, SDG 3 Good Health and Well-Being, SDG 4 Quality Education, SDG 6 Clean Water and Sanitation, SDG 9 Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, SDG 15 Life on Land, and SDG 17 Partnerships for the Goals.

Wistron Foundation

Since the establishment in 2010, the two focus areas of the Wistron Foundation's development and public welfare strategies have been "environment" and "humanities". In this way, the concept of "altruism" has been practiced, and the balance and harmony between human and nature have also been committed to facilitate. The foundation cooperates with non-profit partners with the same philosophy to carry out diversified and long-term project partnership. We strategically focus on culture & care and the environment in order to strengthen the protection of the environment and ecology and to enhance the humanistic values. The 6 major aspects of project investments include: environmental protection, habitat adoption, environmental education, cultural enhancement, education and care, and service implementation. Work proposals of the Foundation are regularly submitted to the Board of Directors each year to report on the implementation status and results and ensure that the charity projects meet the aims and targets of the Foundation. In 2022, a total of 25 projects were implemented.

Employees’ Impact

We create a corporate mission of "Trusted Innovation Partner for Technology, Sustainability & Better Lives" to respond to the sustainable challenges that the society is concerned about under the corporate vision of "Sustainability through Innovation" through the key strategies such as "people with purpose" and "labor welfare". Besides using our existing charity impact, Wistron also encourages our employees to participate in social welfare activities. The voluntary donation activities and charity sales activities have received great feedback from the employees. In terms of technological innovation, we take the medium and long term as the development goal to enable the Company's technology research and development capabilities to grow together with the society. The application field of smart life is realized to improve social welfare. For a long period of time, Wistron and its professional public welfare partners have focused on environmental ecology and protection in addition to the application of technological advantages and social investment projects linked to industries. We see the value of sustainability when the issue of continuity is deeply cultivated. The development goals of long-term practice are jointly established, and our employees can also personally participate in it.
