AUO Chairman Paul Peng indicated: “Year 2022 is a crucial milestone in AUO’s fight against climate change. In addition to joining RE100 to set clear targets for the use of renewable energy, being one of the founding enterprises of the ‘Taiwan Climate Partnership,’ AUO will also extend our carbon management mechanism to supply chain partners. With solid expertise in smart manufacturing, we will guide the value chain to realize green productions from the inside-out. Also, we’ll collaborate with value chain to implement risk and business continuity management that make AUO more sustainable.”

AUO upgrades the corporate sustainability governance body “Sustainability Committee” as the "ESG and Climate Committee.” The Board of Directors and the ESG Committee act as the core decision-makers to strengthen climate governance under the existing sustainability goals. With profound sustainability awareness and in-depth participation from all personnel, AUO establishes a cross-unit platform for the systematic deployment of digital applications and the development of low-carbon technologies by working groups. AUO also persists to identify emerging green business opportunities to strengthen the greater roles that display technologies can play during the global low-carbon transformation. The ESG and Climate Committee also define a systemic blueprint and net-zero roadmap based on the comprehensive scopes of greenhouse gas emissions in its business operations to drive the transformation holistically.
