Continuously Improving Supply Chain Sustainability
TSMC cares about the sustainability of the environment, the society, and the economy, aiming to improve supply chain management and influence the industry towards sustainability by building a responsible supply chain. Therefore, TSMC set two strategies ‒ Sustainability Risk Management and Local Supply Optimization ‒ based on the five core categories stated in the TSMC Supplier Code of Conduct: Labor, Health and Safety, Environmental Requirements, Ethics, and Management, to ensure continuous improvement. Five Action Plans have been created based on these core values, propelling TSMC's path towards sustainability into a positive cycle.
