Teamwork and wholeheartedly working in the interests of our customers constitute the Novatek business philosophy. Novatek and its suppliers are always looking for better and more consummate technology and methods, striving to meet customer needs and expectations. In addition, to meet with international environmental protection laws and customer requirements for environmental protection, Novatek has also established a green product management system that has been recognized by major international manufacturers. We continue to strengthen and improve our sustainable supply chain management, assisting suppliers in obtaining relevant ISO management system certifications. In 2022, Novatek released the "Novatek Supplier Code of Conduct" and required its suppliers to comply and sign. For the first time, we organized a "Sustainable Supply Chain Management Forum", working together with supply chain partners to set sustainable business goals. Furthermore, we strive to provide high-quality customer services, improving customer satisfaction year by year. Novatek regards suppliers and customers as strategic partners, and looks forward to creating a win-win ecosystem through joint cooperation and efforts.

 

As an important member of the global supply chain for semiconductor products, Novatek has the obligation to assume the responsibility for environmental sustainability. Through the formulation and implementation of environmental safety and health policies, as well as the continuous promotion of greenhouse gas inventory, business activities that affect the environment, safety and health must meet the requirements of laws and regulations. Novatek is committed to reducing the negative impact of business operation on the environment. For this reason, the design and manufacturing of products are in compliance with the environmental protection regulations and energy-saving trends around the world, offering products that comply with customers’ environmental protection and energy-saving requirements. As a result, the revenue of energy-saving products has been growing year by year. In 2022, the Company gradually increased the use of renewable energy and announced its goals. In addition to sponsoring the maintenance of the "Yushan National Park Trails and Facilities" for many years, the Company also sponsored the "Sea Viewing Park" of the Hsinchu Air Quality Purification Zone in 2022, gathering corporate volunteers to jointly protect the environment. In the future, Novatek’s keystone goal of sustainable development will include continuing to strive for the refinement of product design, and bringing out more energy-saving products with low burden on the environment, thereby making a contribution to the sustainable development of the environment.
