TSMC’s Third ESG AWARD Reaches 1,880 Proposals, Driving Sustainable Innovation
TSMC established an annual ESG AWARD to encourage employees to contribute inspiring ideas to support TSMC’s five ESG directions and recognize ESG progress of internal divisions. The ESG AWARD helps to motivate TSMCers to explore and tap into various possibilities of progress to continually drive the culture of sustainable innovation. TSMC ESG AWARD entered its third year in 2022. To encourage all employees to invest in ESG and to bypass geographical restrictions, this year, all overseas subsidiaries participated in the grand event. Not only did the Company broadcast all the shortlisted proposals of first round selection in a 3D virtual exhibition, but two warm-up programs were also launched to strengthen TSMCers’ awareness of ESG values and actions. A total of 109,890 people participated, submitting up to 1,880 proposal, reaching a YoY increase of 50% and continuing to extend the impact of common good.
While TSMC is committed to the five ESG directions and sustainnovation, we also encourage TSMCers to expand their horizons, cherish resources, care for others, and become respectable world citizens through participating in ESG AWARD.
Continuing to Deepen Corporate ESG Culture, Proposals for the Five ESG Directions Increase
In order to promote the implementation of sustainable culture in all organizations at home and abroad, TSMC not only built a dedicated bilingual website for the TSMC ESG AWARD, but also expanded the scale of consultation seminars to 50 sessions this year. TSMC invited ESG representatives from the 2021 EMPOWERMENT and ENGAGMENT AWARD Winners to share ideas on how to motivate colleagues to practice ESG. Internal experts also exchanged their experience on sustainable topics including energy conservation and carbon reduction, circular resources, diversity and inclusion, so as to enhance mutual benefits across organizations. The number of proposals in the five ESG directions all increased this year. Among all, the growth rate of Create a Diverse and Inclusive Workplace reached 116%, demonstrating that TSMCers are keen on building a workplace that can unleash potential and realize the value of diversity. They are willing to come up with innovative ideas and put them into action.
Entries of The Third TSMC ESG AWARD Continue to Grow
Through TSMC ESG AWARD, our ideas are valued and recognized. Not only can we feel the vigorous ESG culture of the Company, but it also enhances our confidence in realizing the idea. While focusing on the core competency of IC manufacturing, we can contribute to the society.
Promoting cross-cultural communication is a fantastic way to help everyone feel included. It also fosters diversity and inclusiveness in the workplace. I'm honored to receive this ESG AWARD, and hope it encourages our colleagues to venture out of their comfort zone in meeting people of different cultures and backgrounds.
