The Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes are among the most important globally-accepted indicators in reviewing corporate sustainability. By investigating the three core dimensions of environmental, social and governance (ESG), operational risks and opportunities of a company are revealed. The members of the DJSI Indices are announced each year, serving as important referential indicators for global investors to gauge a company's non-financial performance.

This year AUO excelled in the ITC Electronic Equipment, Instruments & Components sector and scored the highest in Customer Relationship Management and Environmental Reporting. Meanwhile, the Company also headed the industry in terms of Human Capital Development, Risk & Crisis Management, and Environmental Policy & Management Systems, recognized again for its overall performance.

AUO implements corporate governance with high standards, demonstrating high governance principles in respects including employee care, shareholder rights, operational transparency, risk management, and instant information disclosure. The Company was ranked among the top 5% enterprises in the Corporate Governance Evaluation released by the Taiwan Stock Exchange. Furthermore, this year AUO received a sustainability-linked loan from DBS Bank for its exceptional performance in the sustainability index. The Company was the first technology company in the Asia Pacific region to have obtained a sustainability-linked loan.
