Sustainable Supply Chain

Supply chain management is becoming regional and shorter than ever before. Therefore, how to manage supply chain to keep sustainability has become one of the main challenges today. In order to establish a more resilient and sustainable supply chain, Winbond has proactively promoted corporate sustainable development by broadening the scope of these efforts. For pursuring a long-term and sustainable partnerships with our suppliers, we also hope to attract potential suppliers who share the same vision of sustainable business operations with us. By implementing sustainable supply chain management policies, and collaborating on regular ESG supplier workshops, environmental conservation investigations, and supplier sustainability training courses, we are truly appreciated to embed sustainability elements into Winbond’s sustainable supply chain management system gradually.

Sustainable Risk Assessment

Sustainability Risk Assessment

In order to gradually establish a resilient Winbond supply chain, Winbond has developed a supplier ESG risk assessment (which evaluates suppliers on 3 major aspects, environmental, social, and governance, and 21 assessment sub-items) based on the RBA standards since 2022. In 2023, Winbond will assess first-tier key suppliers, identifying high-risk suppliers and the type of risk. In the near future, through regular surveys, risk assessments, and assessing degrees of impact, Winbond hopes to propose improving actions targeting areas where our suppliers can move on. Winbond hopes to work together to increase the internal resilience of the overall supply chain.

  • Identify supply chain risks and the severity of impact on supply chains through regular sustainability surveys and assessments.
