The Group has obtained ISO 14001 and IECQ QC080000 certifications for environmental protection, and has adopted the idea of life-cycle and source management to strictly follow the requirements of environmental regulations from technology development, design, manufacturing, transportation to reuse and recycling. No hazardous substances are used, and products are developed in compliance with EU RoHS, REACH, WEEE, EuP directives, including halogen-free, lead-free requirements and other international regulations. The Group's production sites are located in Taiwan, Guangzhou, Shanghai and Malaysia, and its main suppliers are the suppliers of raw materials. We also maintain good cooperation with upstream and downstream partners, and strive to become the R&D partner of customers at the design stage in order to keep abreast of the latest product and market demands and dynamics.
ABC Group is committed to treating every employee equally. We base our policies on the principles outlined in international human rights conventions such as the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the UN Global Compact, RBA (Responsible Business Alliance) Code of Conduct, and the International Labour Organization (ILO) standards. Our human rights policy prohibits discrimination, child labor, forced labor, and respects the freedom of association of employees. We ensure that employees, customers, suppliers, and partners are respected and protected, and we consider creating a fair, safe, and comfortable workplace environment as our responsibility. We are committed to completely eliminating issues related to bonded labor, underage labor, and overtime work.
- When selecting new suppliers, we ask them to complete a self-assessment form that includes social and environmental aspects, allowing us to analyze the supplier's background information.
- The metals used by our suppliers must comply with conflict-free mineral principles, and suppliers must provide reports on hazardous substances, safety data sheets, or conflict-free mineral declarations.
- In addition to requiring suppliers to obtain valid certificates for ISO environmental and other management systems, we also assess suppliers through ESG questionnaires, on-site audits, and other methods to ensure that their operations comply with ABC’s supplier management policy.
- In response to the varying impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic in different countries, we have diversified our procurement sources to avoid over-reliance on specific countries or single suppliers.
