A Message From The Chairman
Trust, passion, courage, collaboration, and perfection are Accton Group’s core values and we believe employees are our greatest asset. Accton’s logo represents a tree of knowledge and wisdom.
It symbolizes the passion and talents of Accton’s staff and partners, working together as a collaborative power for maximum abundance.
As we develop Internet communication technologies, we believe that corporate growth and profitability should be built on making our society a better place. We have taken care of our employees and contribute to our community through charity, arts and culture. In 2011, Accton received Asia’s Best CSR Practices Award from CMO Asia in Singapore.
As Accton has expanded into a group of companies, it remains an active participant in local society with a strong sense of social responsibility, supporting environmental awareness in all its designs and manufacturing processes. Looking to the future, Accton’s vision and mission can be summarized by the following:
- To passionately deliver the best quality IP-centric network solutions.
- To maintain a global leadership in open IT infrastructure.
- To contribute and care for the community by leveraging our technology.
In 2016, Accton entered its 29th year in business and we incorporated corporate social responsibility as one of the key indices of our self-evaluation. In terms of performance and profitability, we aim to achieve sound corporate governance in a balance with stakeholders’ interests. We are committed to sustainable manufacturing, improving our supply chain management, embracing diversity and inclusion, and contributing to our society.
We are committed to using our core technologies to facilitate energy efficiency and mitigate climate change. Accton’s manufacturing sites are certified to ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System.
Sustainable Supply Chain
Accton has implemented new sustainable policies into our supply chain management. All the components, modules, and materials used are in full compliance with a list of restricted substances specified in the Control Standards for Accton Hazardous Substances (document no. QPC-CE05). The restrictions are not only limited to the six substances regulated by the EU RoHS (Restriction of the use of Hazardous Substance’ Directive 2011/65/EU), but also includes items regulated by international environmental law and our global customers. In addition, we have built a sustainable supply chain information management platform, called the eGreen System, in order to incorporate sustainable materials from the beginning of product design, and significantly improve the reliability of sustainable products and verification processes.
Diversity and Inclusion
Employees are Accton’s most valuable asset. We are committed to offering our staff a competitive salary and benefits, well-defined promotion pathways, and a safe workplace. We also create an enjoyable learning atmosphere that fosters innovation, attracts and retains top talent, and ensures diversity and inclusion.
Charity, Arts and Culture Events
Since the establishment of Accton’s E-platform for charitable works in 1999, we have been caring for needy people, supporting socially-disadvantaged children to attend school, and having our staff engaged in charity events. Since 2000, Accton Arts Foundation has facilitated cultural and arts education. In recent years, through partnering with local communities, we have revitalized monuments and promoted community participation.
Accton has a policy to always maintain the highest integrity and honesty when conducting business. The company slogan, “Making Partnership Work,” demonstrates Accton’s total commitment to its partners and how it places the highest value on forming long-term partnerships that create maximum benefit for all.
As we continue to improve our operational performance, we will disclose more data on non-financial aspects in our sustainability reports. We will always maintain the highest integrity and honesty when conducting business, be committed to sustainable development, and provide greater transparency and disclosure in corporate social responsibility reports. We invite you to follow our progress, and welcome your feedback so that we can keep improving and thriving in the future.
