Green Investment and Financing


Green Investment and Sustainability-Linked Loan


The whole world is facing the impact of climate change. As one of Taiwan’s intensive electronics industry, we set up a green investment management unit to achieve the goal of green investment and create long-term value for investors and shareholders.

Green Energy Investment
  • In May 2022, Winbond acquired 15% equity in CHIA-HO Green Energy Corporation for NT$555 million, whose main business is to develop solar energy fields. Considering that its parent company, Taiwan Cement Corporation, has valuable practical experience in the renewable energy industry.
  • In November 2023, Winbond announced its participation in the joint establishment of Kai-Hong Energy Co., Ltd., with an investment of NT$400 million. Kai-Hong Energy’s primary business involves investing in solar power generation and wind power generation infrastructure projects in Taiwan.



Global Voluntary Carbon Credits
  • In response to the global carbon neutrality trend and the 2050 net-zero goal, Winbond not only joined the Singapore International Carbon Exchange (CIX) in 2022 and continued to participate in international carbon trading, but also became the first international carbon purchaser on the Taiwan Carbon Exchange (TCX) in 2023. 
  • By the end of 2023, Winbond had cumulatively acquired 13,500 metric tons of voluntary carbon credits from 9 countries in Asia and Africa.




Sustainability-Linked Loan and Sustainability Fixed Deposits

In June 2023, the bank confirmed that Winbond has achieved the annual sustainability indicator performance.
