Corporate Sustainability Summit presents awards for green-minded growth

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Hosted by the Taiwan Institute for Sustainable Energy, the 2013 Taiwan Corporate Sustainability Awards were held at the “2013 Corporate Sustainability Summit,” with Vice President Wu Den-Yih on hand to present awards to the recipients.

This year's 2013 Taiwan Corporate Sustainability Awards marked the event's sixth year. Fifty-eight enterprises participated, a new high for the event.

Since this year's events were expanded, awards were presented not only for the contents of reports, but also to recognize sustainable corporate development performance with the “Climate Leadership,” “Sustainable Innovation,” “Transparency and Integrity,” “Creativity in Communication,” and “Social Inclusion” categories.

Besides selecting the top 50 honorees, recognition also went to the “New Entrant Awards” winners, which encourage enterprises to engage in sustainability reporting and invest in transparent information disclosure in the hopes of encouraging more enterprises to implement enterprise sustainability participation.

Vice President Wu Den-Yih (吳敦義) presented the awards to the outstanding domestic enterprises for promoting corporate sustainability, expressing the desire that Taiwan enterprises deal with global climate change and green governance issues.

The 2013 Taiwan Corporate Sustainability Awards judging was led by Eugene Chien (簡又新), who noted that in 2013, the participating entries' gross revenues represented 61% of Taiwan's GDP, or an annual output of NT$8.57 trillion. In past years, entrants represented as high as 71% of GDP, showing the importance that Taiwan enterprises place on the awards.
