TSMC Joins Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition

Hsinchu, Taiwan – January 7, 2015 – TSMC today announced that it has joined the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) as an applicant member. TSMC believes a corporation’s social responsibility is to make society better, and fully supports the Vision and Mission of the EICC, the largest coalition of electronics companies committed to supporting the rights and wellbeing of workers and communities affected by the global electronics supply chain.

In addition to adopting the EICC Code of Conduct to measure the company’s own continuous improvement in social, environmental, and ethical performance, TSMC will also progressively apply the Code of Conduct to our major suppliers, supporting them with EICC tools and standards.

“As the world’s largest dedicated IC foundry, TSMC recognizes that we can have a major positive influence on industry and communities, and our values are in harmony with those of the EICC,” said Dr. Stephen Tso, TSMC’s Senior Vice President responsible for Materials Management and Risk Management. “The EICC’s shared approach is an ideal match for TSMC’s culture of collaboration, and we look forward to working and sharing with the other members of the Coalition.”
