Complete the "FENC Sustainability Strategic Blueprint."

For committee members to forge consensus on sustainability awareness and grasp the latest trends of sustainable development, five sessions of "Analysis of Latest CSR Trends and Sustainability Strategic Blueprint Workshop" were held in 2017, where CSR Committee proposed the sustainability action plan to jointly complete the "FENC Sustainability Strategic Blueprint."

Analysis of Latest CSR Trends and Sustainability Strategic Blueprint Workshop

For CSR Committee members to forge consensus on sustainability awareness and for the committee members and employees to further understand the latest trends in sustainable development, in order to formulate future "Sustainability Strategic Blueprint," five sessions of "Analysis of Latest CSR Trends and Sustainability Strategic Blueprint Workshop" were held in 2017 in both Taiwan and China, which were attended by 165 employees.

The workshop opened in the morning with a review on FENC's CSR performance in 2016 and current sustainability trends, introducing the contents of UN Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs), so that participating employees could understand the context and direction of sustainable development. Furthermore, through referencing the methods for and promotion projects launched by domestic and overseas counterparts, clients and benchmark enterprises to realize SDGs, the workshop aimed to inspire comprehensive thinking regarding the issue of sustainability.

After learning the SDGs, each group discussed SDGs that had greater significance to FENC and produced the "SDGs Priority Matrix." Then, the groups delved in from the perspective of value chain and assessed the SDGs that were important and impactful to the different positions in the value chain and produced the "SDGs Value Chain Evaluation." The results of the two evaluations were combined to identify SDGs important to FENC as future goals for sustainable development and on this foundation, the groups developed sustainability action plans and presented on stage.

After the workshop, participating employees devised their own sustainable action plans with colleagues and managers from their department, producing 103 action plans to jointly complete FENC's "Sustainability Strategic Blueprint." The participation and formulation of goals by the employees not only strengthens CSR Committee members' sense of mission, to regard CSR as their own responsibilities, but also forged cohesion of FENC employees, enhancing overall awareness for sustainability.
