Since corporate sustainability has been regarded as one of the important corporate strategies, a new functional committee, Corporate Governance Committee, was added to the Board of Directors in September 2019, and the Corporate Governance Committee was renamed the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee upon the revision of the Articles of Incorporation in the shareholders’ meeting held in July, 2021. Under the Committee are five groups in charge of relevant business, including Corporate Governance Group, Sustainable Development Group, Integrity Management Group, Environmental Sustainability Group, and Risk Management Group. Among them, the Corporate Social Responsibility Group is divided into five subgroups, including Corporate Governance, Environmental Sustainability, Product Liability, Employee Relations, and Social Welfare Groups. Each group responds to its corresponding department and conducts regular discussions on the identification of stakeholders in accordance with the scope of their business, and the Administration Division is in charge of the secretariat affairs.
