Supplier CSR assessment
Ta Ya’s suppliers are not required for review or self-evaluation, provided that they are ISO9000-certified and annually submit valid certification. However, to enhance CSR, we propose and execute review plans. Due to the QC080000 certification, suppliers of the enameled wire business group are required to comply with the Hazardous Substance Free (HSF) standards and provide HSF products. Therefore, suppliers of HSF materials are required to be reviewed or self-evaluated annually. Of the non-HSF suppliers, those who provide essential materials are required to be reviewed regularly.
There are 14 criteria in the CSR review, each accounting for five points. Suppliers with an average of less than four points are considered unqualified. The criteria include: human rights, workplace safety, anti-corruption, anti-bribery, regular work hours, minimum wage compliance, active environmental responsibilities, environmental protection, and prevention of occupational hazards.
For suppliers with an average score of less than 4, the procurement staff is required to investigate individual areas where suppliers failed to score 4 or higher. Furthermore, suppliers are given relevant information and proper guidance to improve. These suppliers have demonstrated improvement after our guidance efforts. Although contractors are not subject to regular assessment at this point, Ta Ya would invite contractors to participate in general safety trainings from time to time as a means of promoting proper safety and health awareness. Ta Ya encourages all its business partners to voluntarily contribute to the sustainability of our society and environment during their pursuit for economic gains.
We assessed 31 suppliers in 2015 and 26 of them were HSF suppliers. All the suppliers had an average score of more than 4 points (full score: 5 points) in terms of corporate social responsibilities. 33 suppliers were assessed in 2016 and 25 of them were HSF suppliers. All the suppliers had an average score of more than 4 points in terms of corporate social responsibilities 34 suppliers are expected to be assessed in 2017 and 25 of them are HSF suppliers. In the order and the supplier review form, we request the suppliers to observe our environmental policy and respect our CSR with respect to the ESH, human rights and anti-corruption activities. The purchase personnel of the Company will investigate to understand why the CSR score in the supplier assessment is less than 4 points, if any. They will share experiences with the suppliers, provide relevant references, and give positive guidance to ensure taking the corporate social responsibility together with the suppliers. As for other affiliated enterprises, Cuprime will also start supplier CSR management in 2017 after introducing the EICC standard.
