New Agriculture and Circular Agriculture and Animal Husbandry


       Sustained profitability is not only a necessary prerequisite for sustainable business operations, it is also the foundation for an enterprise to fulfill its corporate social responsibility. Taiwan Sugar Corporation is a state-owned enterprise and operates mainly in the sugar industry. In recent years, the external environment has undergone rapid changes, resulting in active business diversification. Currently, there are many expansion projects, including food manufacturing, seedlings and flower cultivation, tourist hotels, retail sales, and biotechnology food. Strengthening corporate governance, upholding integrity management, continuing innovation research, focusing on product safety and complying with relevant regulations are all necessary conditions for creating the economic performance of sustained profitability.
       In order to effectively manage the issues of concern of stakeholders in the economic aspect and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), TSC has established the related responsible unit, formulated relevant policies and short-term, medium-term and long-term goals and invested in resources and management systems.
