       In addition to promoting good-neighborly activities and mutual help and protection, TSC and its affiliates continue to engage in public welfare, caring for the society and the disadvantages to fulfill our corporate social responsibility. We have the love point collecting activity in TSC gas stations to provide long-term warm and loving services for the society.

Sports Events

       To respond to the sports trend and promote baseball among students to enhance their techniques of this sport, TSC sponsored sports events in 2017, such as the International Baseball Games and WTA Taiwan Open. In addition, TSC also organized the donation of materials in the Run for Charity byTaiwan SugarCorporation, an event with 3,000 participants. Through the cloud marathon, the runners accumulated mileage online in exchange ofdonations of materials worth of NTD 160,000, and these materials were donatedto Eden Social Welfare Foundation and KaohsiungDown-syndrome's Be-HappyAssociation.



Environmental Protection Events

       To do its best to fulfill its social responsibility, TSC organizes environmental protection related activities and continues to respond to the “safe and clean homeland” project by implementing good-neighborly activities, assisting in the clean-up of the surrounding communities, cleaning the roads and removing roadside weeds in the communities, hoping to encourage the residents in the communities to cooperate and join in the clean-up to jointly create happy communities. To respond to the EPA’s beach cleaning activity, in 2017, TSC volunteered to clean the coast of Aogu Wetland. The “Beach Cleaning to Guard Taiwan” event was led by the president of TSC, and the beach cleaning is conducted monthly and will last for two years, aiming at contributing to the beautiful coastal environment.
       The “Loving the Earth, Cleaning the Mountains for Environmental Protection” charity event held in 2017 was participated by TSC’s employees and their families to clean the Guanyin Mountain Scenic Area. The public was also invited to jointly restore the cleanliness of this scenic area. This event was acclaimed by visitors and also served as a valuable environmental education course for both the parents and the childrenandthe concept of environment protection was passed on to the next generation, making this charitable event more meaningful.



Educational Events

       The preservation of cultural assets is also an important part of corporate social responsibility. Through investments in human resources, materials and financial resources, TSC has preserved the assets of the Sugar Industry. In 2017, TSC’s sugar refineries held a series of Cultural Festival of Sugar Industry, and the public felt like reading a living history book of sugar industry. This type of educational events not only deepens the public’s impression of the cultural experience of the sugar industry but also provides positive benefits for the development of local tourism, making the preservation of sugar industry more productive. In addition, it is not only open to the general public and various schools and organizations, it also serves as a venue for field trips and also provides relevant cultural and historical information for the academic research in domestic colleges and universities.

In 2017, the education program was successfully completed in Yong-Hua, Yong-Fu, Chongsyue, An-Ching and Tzu Chi Elementary Schools in Tainan City, with 24 classes, a total of 635 school students participated. In the future, we will arrange visits to TSC’s organic parks for the school students to experience various processes from planting to packaging in person.
