The Social Responsibility Department was established under the Public Relations and Brand Management Division in 2007 with designated personnel and independent budget. The department serves as the executive secretary to the CSR Committee and is responsible for integrating inter-departmental CSR tasks in addition to planning and carrying out CSR strategies and projects.
The CSR Committee was officially formed under the Board of Directors in 2014. The Committee is chaired by the Chairman of the Board, and the President serves as the Vice Chairman. The senior management from each business group serves as members of the Committee to identify risks and opportunities relevant to environmental, social, and governance issues, so as to integrate operations with core resources, establish sustainable strategies, and enhance the levels of accountability, participation, and governance of the senior management to create circular performance. To strengthen CSR implementation, the compensations of the President and Vice President have been tied to the Company’s CSR performance in accordance with the resolution of the CSR Committee.
