As a member on the front line of cloud services and global supply chain, we deeply understand that only common good can help promote sustainable development. As we expand our businesses, we shall reduce our impact on the environment and support the society to attain the goal of common good.
A Message from the Chairman of Corporate Sustainability Committee
2020 was truly a challenging year! With the global outbreak of COVID-19, forest fires in Australia and Amazon, Arctic warming, snowstorm in Texas, and other worldwide disasters, we are forced to take up the “New Normal” to live very differently now. Not only are these changes affecting our every-day life, they have severe impact to shipping, agriculture, raw material and ICT industries.
With challenges coming in one after another, our flexibility and resilience were put to the test. In the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, Wiwynn quickly established a command center to put the employees’ safety as our top priority. Various technological solutions were implemented to help maintain communications between our manufacturing plants, offices, customers and supply chain partners to minimize physical travelling. Thankfully, with everyone’s cooperation, we successfully secured uninterrupted, smooth product development, production, and shipment. Not only did we secure the company’s operations, we were also able to ensure stable operations of cloud data centers to satisfy the huge demand of working from home, distance learning, telemedicine, and online shopping.
Our commitments towards a sustainable environment have never wavered. Other than continuing developing products with high efficiency and energy saving, we took a step further by looking into the company’s operations. Our first step of success was to participate in the CDP’s climate change program, where we got a good performance score of A-. Wiwynn also went ahead with the green power purchase plan in May 2020, one of the first in the Taiwanese information service industry. Moreover, we promised to replace 10% of our total power usage with green power in our Taipei headquarter from 2021, and planning to gradually increase this ratio.
In terms of operation management, we continued expanding our production and service sites, investing in the safety-related certifications and ensuring the flexibility and stability of production and supply chain. We also adopted cloud-based ERP system to reduce operating costs and spread risks. In another aspect, the company continues to promote end-user computing, where our employees are encouraged to use such information technology to create a more efficient and innovative working environment. Moreover, our Board of Directors also established the “Corporate Sustainability Committee” in November 2020 to focus on the sustainable management of the company and carry out our corporate social responsibility. Finally, we are going to implement Taiwan Intellectual Property Management System (TIPS) to further enhance the risk control on intellectual property rights.
To conclude, with the unforeseen challenges and difficulties, we are now in an era that is difficult to apply common sense and experience from the past. Therefore, delaying our mission of sustainable development is not an option. We will continue investing and improving our commitments mentioned above and are ever so grateful to be a force in building a sustainable future for our generations to come.
