Social participation

Everyone can make key contributions to building a better world. We firmly believe that unlimited possibilities can be unlocked by providing opportunities and eliminating obstacles facing underprivileged groups as a result of the rural-urban divide and a lack of resources.

Caring for disadvantaged groups

The growth and prosperity of a company come from social resources and the support of the public. With a deep sense of gratitude and appreciation, the Board of Directors of Getac Holdings sets aside a portion of profits each year and allocates it to the "Getac Holdings Charity Trust Fund." In 2022, as the world gradually recovered from the pandemic and social interactions and activities resumed, the Company continued to focus on education and social welfare. We established long-term partnerships with various non-profit organizations, social welfare foundations, care centers, and intelligent development centers, supporting their organizational development and participating in safeguarding programs. Our efforts aimed to provide assistance and care to underprivileged families, rural education, and child welfare. In 2022, a total of NT$450,000 was spent to support the disadvantaged in society.

Promoting Sustainable Volunteer Day and Contributing to Local Revitalization

Starting from 2023, Getac encourages employees to actively engage in social welfare and environmental sustainability volunteer activities. We take the initiative in planning these activities and designate specific days as "Sustainable Volunteer Day." On this day, employees have the option to either work at the company or participate in volunteer activities organized by us.
To enhance employee participation, we take care of all arrangements, including itinerary planning, transportation, meals, and souvenirs for the volunteers. Moving forward, we will continue organizing a diverse range of ESG activities that are environmentally friendly. For instance, tree planting and supporting local organic farming initiatives are on the agenda. Through Sustainable Volunteer Day, our colleagues can develop ecological conservation awareness and demonstrate their commitment to reducing carbon footprints in their daily lives. This approach is a crucial step towards achieving sustainable business operations and net-zero carbon emissions. Additionally, we actively contribute to local community revitalization efforts, promoting the well-being and harmony of the places where we operate.

About Y.S Awards

The 20th Youth Innovation Cup is themed "Cultivating a Sustainable New Future." It responds to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Sustainable development is no longer just empty talk; it has become a tangible action guideline and a common language for the world. With regards to achieving net-zero carbon emissions, the intersection of sustainability issues and digital innovation technology is crucial for strengthening sustainable development and stimulating the circular economy in industrial development.
Getac Holdings encourages participating teams to develop conceptual proposals for the application software or VR scene application of rugged laptops and tablet computers in special environments such as national defense, public safety, logistics, transportation, healthcare, industry, and natural resources. The proposals should embody environmentally friendly and sustainable innovation concepts, opening up possibilities for innovative design and digital creation and constructing a future blueprint for smart technology, ecological environment, and sustainable development. This year's digital application and industrial design category can be broadly divided into three major directions: sustainable environmental and ecological issues, applications of environmentally friendly materials; detection and assistance in future transportation and public safety; and the development of educational and entertaining projects integrating SDGs and technology.
The works of the winners in each category not only impress with their creativity but also demonstrate feasibility and relevance to real-life situations. In the Dynamic Image category, the winner of the Getac Technology Creative Marketing award, titled "The Harder It Gets, the Stronger It Gets," received high praise from the judges. It showcased a high level of video production and sparked public awareness of the impact of war disasters and abnormal climate on Earth, emphasizing the ability for individuals to contribute to human survival.
