Philosophy and Goals

"Taken from the society, give back to society" is not just a slogan, but a concrete demonstration of Novatek people giving back to the society with practical actions.


Social engagement and influence

Social Participation

In 2022, Novatek's overall input in social caring was NT$ 121,589,342, an increase of 72.5% compared with the previous year. The major contribution was from the Company, accounting for 86.7%; the second contribution was employee donation, accounting for 12.3%, and the remaining was time contribution, accounting for 1%.


Based on the objectives of the projects, Novatek's social participation actions are divided into three aspects: community empowerment, public donation and volunteer service. Community empowerment includes higher education, assistance to the disadvantaged, education in rural areas, and sports promotion. Public donations include employee donations such as the Novatek Charity Club and the Novatek Social Caring Fund, as well as local actions. Volunteer services focus on serving the disadvantaged and caring children.

To promote project management and explain the results of social participation, Novatek also attaches great importance to the social influence of various programs. We define "social influence" as "the beneficiaries (including beneficiaries or beneficiary organizations) who have changed their thinking or behaviors due to Novatek's social engagement services." For the engagement in the three aspects of community empowerment, public donation and volunteer service, we use qualitative description or quantitative data to present the positive influence of Novatek's social participation.
