Getac Responds To The SDGs
Focusing on our four goals and continuing to create long-term value.
he UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a strategic roadmap for the responses of enterprises to climate change and consumer demands. Issues of primary concern to enterprises and future possibilities and directions in the field of corporate sustainability can be identified through reviews of these 17 goals. Getac has singled out sustainability actions and corresponding goals based on factors such as industry attributes, core capabilities of the company, available resources, feasibility, and stakeholder expectations on the foundation of the UN SDGs. Mid- and long-term sustainability strategies of the Company will focus on the following four SDGs: Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth, Goal 9: Industry, Innovation, infrastructure, Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production, and Goal 4: Quality Education. Action plans are being implemented in the daily operations of the Company in the two categories of “welfare thrust” and “corporate thrust.”
In the welfare thrust dimension, the Company engages in charitable donations and utilizes its technological capabilities to improve the quality of education in remote areas through its Getac Charity Trust Fund. The Company also organizes “Y.S. Award” competitions to provide promising young students with a platform and opportunity to give free rein to their creativity and thereby train much-needed star performers of the future age of AI. In the field of corporate operations, the Company is implementing process innovation, enhancing its energy use efficiency, and promoting the universal use of eco-friendly materials by relying on R&D efforts in core technologies. Getac actively develops industries with high-added value to enhance its corporate value, with the ultimate goal of creating new employment opportunities. The Company also strives to build a work environment characterized by equality and mutual respect and a climate conducive to learning and growth to foster talent cultivation as a driving force for innovative R&D. Getac maximizes its influence on supply chain partners through communication, supervision, and encouragement to promote respect for human rights and environmental protection and harness its powers as a corporate citizen for positive causes.
