Mission & Guiding Principles
Acting with Integrity
TSMC believes in acting ethically, following the law, and balancing the interests of all stakeholders. The Company endeavors to use the experience of developing a sustainable business to drive the industry and supply chain into a positive cycle and to act together with them as an uplifting force in society.
Strengthening Environmental Protection
TSMC strives to achieve environmental sustainability and continues to promote green fabs, green manufacturing, and green supply chains. The Company seeks the most efficient use of energy and resources and is committed to reducing waste and preventing pollution. TSMC is eager to share its environmental experience and expertise and aims to collaborate with government, academia, and all of society to address the challenges of climate change.
Caring for the Disadvantaged
TSMC believes in equality, justice, and a safe and prosperous society. The Company combines its resources with employee volunteer service to commit money, material and labor to the two main areas of "education" and "living." TSMC hopes to provide underprivileged students in rural regions with diverse learning opportunities and to offer disadvantaged groups necessary aid and emergency relief for the common good of society.
"TSMC ESG Policy" is the top guiding principle for our sustainable development. The "ESG Matrix" set by TSMC's Founder, Dr. Morris Chang clearly defines the scope of TSMC's corporate social responsibility. The horizontal axis shows the seven areas where TSMC aims to set an example: morality, business ethics, economy, rule of law, sustainability, work/life balance and happiness, and philanthropy. On the vertical axis are actions that TSMC has taken to fulfill its responsibilities.
