Message from the Chairman

To all stakeholders of VisEra:

2022 has been a challenging year for VisEra with both growth and struggles. Despite challenges such as the Russo-Ukrainian War, Shanghai lockdown, global inflation, interest rate hikes by the US Federal Reserve, and adjustments in semiconductor inventories, VisEra’s management team carefully responded and completed numerous tasks. They included IPO application, preparation of the advanced 0.61um manufacturing process for mass production, IEEE Best Conference Paper Award, inauguration of the Longtan Plant, IPO, publication of the 1st ESG report, and winning the silver award in the National Enterprise Environmental Protection Award. Despite the uncertainties in international geopolitics and economy, VisEra has upheld its commitment to achieving breakthroughs in industrial technology and seeking new business opportunities for the Company.

Our achievements in 2022 were as follows:

  • Continuous purchase of green electricity
  • Supplier ESG/RBA self-evaluation and key supplier ESG/RBA system audit
  • Placed the 1st ESG report on the official website and set up the VisEra ESG website
  • Nominated for the 2022 National Occupational Safety and Health Award
  • Added flexible shifts for day shifts
  • Obtained the healthy workplace certification from the Ministry of Health and Welfare
  • Participated in the “2022 Talent, In Taiwan” alliance organized by CommonWealth Magazine
  • Received the silver award in the National Enterprise Environmental Protection Award

We have set our ESG work plan for 2023:

  • Provide the ESG Report in both Chinese and English
  • Obtain third-party accreditation for the ESG Report

  • Increase the number of suppliers with RBA VAP
  • Complete replacement of photoresist with hazardous substances (PFHxA)
  • Continue to expand energy conser vation, water conservation, and waste reduction

The 2022 ESG Report focuses more on:

  • Complete extension of medium to long-term objectives for material issues to 2030
  • Linkage between the ESG Report and the Task Force on Climate-related Disclosure (TCFD) and UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  • Carbon inventory for employees’ commutes

VisEra published its first ESG report in July 2022. We are committed to achieving VisEra’s commitment to sustainability by working together on the organization, products, manufacturing, and supply chain in sustainability management activities, including human resources development and retention, green production, AI occupational safety, sustainable supply chain, and social engagement. We are also committed to our role as the customers’ most-trusted business partner to create profits and ensure compliance and information transparency. Our sound corporate governance is the basis of our sustainable development. After years of hard work and operations, we have achieved results and we hope that the ESG activities can be expanded in the coming year. VisEra upholds the motto of “brightening the environment, support the society, science-based governance, and technological innovation” for its commitment to ESG.
