Artery Technology is always committed to the policy of honesty, transparency and responsibility on the basis of integrity since its establishment, and dedicated to the sustainable development and the creation of reasonable profits and values for stakeholders, workers and the society. By establishing clear, effective and real-time multi-directional communication channels, we are able to get more support and trust from associated stakeholders, and know more about their expectations, needs and views, all of which will be taken seriously while formulating our CSR and future business planning so as to contribute more to the whole society.
With the materiality and GRI rules as guidance, the identification of important stakeholders is carried out on the basis of five principles (dependency, responsibility, tension, influence and diverse perspectives) under the Stakeholder Engagement Standard (SES).
In light of these rules, our priority stakeholders are workers, shareholders and investors, customers, suppliers and contractors, academic research institutions and governmental agencies, respectively.
The representatives of relevant departments are responsible for investigating and listening to the views and opinions of their respective stakeholders.
Materiality analysis: By collecting the major concerns and views of stakeholders from all walks of life in economic sustainability, environment protection and social impact, we have identified and summarized 15 CSR issues for detailed analysis with reference to the related international regulations, including Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) and The Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), and evaluated their impact on the operation status of Artery.
