Sustainable Development Team
We have established a sustainable development task-force to implement corporate social responsibilities (CSR). The Board of Directors (BOD) supervises CSR practice and delegates department chiefs to integrate the Company’s CSR code of practice (https://bit.ly/2sLO7Cs ). At the beginning of each year, we will discuss the list of topics in conformity with “environmental”,“social”, and “governance” sustainable development with respect to the UN SDGs, topics that concern stakeholders, and subject matters in relation to industrial/environmental compliance.
Then we will submit the list to BOD which will vote for the feasible sustainable topics to be implemented by each department. Lastly, the Planning Department will prepare the CSR report based on the results of materiality analysis to disclose our concrete achievements.
Membership of Associations
Given the constantly changing dry bulk freight market and the ongoing advancements in naval engineering, we partner with like-minded partners on the industry chain and actively participate in external organizations to maintain close contacts with different parts of society. Absorbing professional opinions from different sides and breeding opportunities for future business cooperation to uncover the value of different industries and growth opportunities are the benefits of cooperation. Furthermore, we will spare no efforts to contribute to and improve marine environmental protection with the professional skills and knowledge of marine transport, endeavoring to lower the impacts of ship operations on the marine ecosystem and perform our CSR for marine environmental protection. The 2019 spending was the same as that of 2018. The total amount is nearly NT$200,000 (see details below).
