LITE-ON has long committed to social inclusion with the goal of "giving back what is taken from society," especially given escalating problems in society.
We efforts have focused on building a society full of multi-culture, education, creativity, and environmental sustainability. In order to achieve this social vision, the company has identified
four critical missions: advancing cultural diversity in quality of humanism, promoting care of youth and children education and life-long learning, nurturing creative and professional talent, and developing sustainable product and environmentally friendly education.
Accomplishment of the above missions depends on how we execute our concrete strategy. Some of the projects undertaken have included: a community assistance program, community college, LITE-ON Award, educational support, a corporate volunteer system, and sustainable product designs. The above strategies were executed mainly through the following actions:
We took Leotek street light in the 2017 Mercury Lamp Sunset Project and performed Taiwan's first social impact assessment on a product. The analysis measured the social return on more than 20,000 street lights replaced in Class 4 and Class 5 rural areas in Taiwan. The Social Value International certified result estimated LITE-ON’s contribution at a multiplier of 2.85.
