Integrity and Eradication of Fouls

      All TSC employees abide by the “Ministry of Economics Employee Integrity and Ethics Rules” to facilitate integrity governance. We have developed “Codes of Ethical Conduct of TSC”, which applies to TSC personnel, including directors (including independent directors) and managers (including the president, vice presidents and directors of various units). In addition, “Employees Normal-Time and Project Evaluation Guidelines”, “Working Rules for Practitioners,”, “Service Guidelines for Practitioner” and “Practice Guidelines for Corporate Governance” are stipulated. We allow practitioners to understand the company's code of conduct by the internal network, posting propaganda of laws and announcements and implementing education and training.
      The Company regularly reviews anti-corruption risks to promote what is beneficial and abolish what is harmful. The Administration Office and various units under it held a total of 15 integrity reports. In addition, an ethics unit was established in accordance with the “Act of the Establishment and Management of the Government Employee Ethics Units and Officers” while various reporting channels, such as fax, a dedicated mail box for reporting and reporting hotline were also established for the public to report or make grievance, and the above information will be disclosed in the bidding notice and the official website of Taiwan Sugar Corporation.

    In accordance with the "Regulations Governing Establishment of Internal Control Systems by Public Companies" revised and promulgated by the Financial Supervisory Commission of the Executive Yuan, we formulated the “Guidelines for Internal Audit Practices"to specify the professional ethics, responsibilities and operating procedures for the internal audit staff. The Internal Audit, BOD completed the in-field audit on 28 units. In addition to notifying the audited unit in written form for improvement, the report was delivered to independent directors for further audit in accordance with the laws and regulations. At the same time, the Inspector General attended the board meetings and reported auditing affairs.
      External donations or sponsorships are handled in accordance with relevant laws and regulations and internal regulations to prevent the incident of offering of accepting a bribe and illegal political contributions. In 2019, TSC did not engage in any public policy lobbying or political donation and was not involved in any legal actions related to anti-competitive behavior, anti-trust and monopolistic conduct.


Anti-corruption Risk Assessment and Education

      In 2019, Department of Ethics conducted a corruption-related risk assessment for 18 units under it, which accounted for 100% of the Company’s total number of business locations. According to the risk report, there were no major corruption-risk cases in 2019. In order to publicize anti-corruption policies and related procedures, the Department of Ethics and Ethics Offices of all units involved enabled the Company's employees to understand relevant anti-corruption regulations and make anti-corruption efforts by multi-advocacy methods such as organizing the relevant anti-corruption education and training, holding a workshop of manufacturers, inviting experts and scholars to give special lectures, issuing and disseminating documents and using electronic information equipment for the internet advocacy and questionnaire surveys.
     The Department of Ethics and its 18 Ethics Offices organized a total of 30 sessions of anti-corruption training and advocacy exercises in 2019. The number of employees participated totaled 1,394 employees. In addition, the anti-corruption policy advocacy and training was carried out for employees of the Company and its subordinate units through text, e-mail, and videos to make sure that 100% of employees participated in training classes. In 2019, TSC Anti-corruption Cultural Relics Exhibition was held in Ciaotou Sugar Refinery in Kaohsiung, and this country-first theme was so innovative and interesting that it attracted more than 10,000 visitors during the 19-dayy exhibition. The curatorial process was recorded in the DVD entitled Full Record of TSC Anti-corruption Cultural Relics Exhibition and also uploaded on YOUTUBE.
