Supply Chain Overview

Management Approach

Supply Chain Management

Unimicron’s suppliers mainly include seven categories of raw material suppliers, equipment, engineering suppliers, waste disposal companies, on-site companies (such as security), human resources brokers, and land, sea and air freight forwarders. In which, both raw material and equipment suppliers are the most important supplier categories, totaling 747 companies. For the major raw material suppliers and equipment suppliers (including strategy key suppliers) involved in the manufacturing of our products, we have developed sound quality management and esg management model for corporate social responsibility, financial risks, conflict minerals, and BCP continuous operation management to meet the principles of corporate sustainable development. At the same time, we have established positive partnerships with suppliers to oversee their esg-related risks, strengthen audit management, and coach and assist in improvement, all to lead the overall supply chain towards a sustainable future.

Sustainable Supplier Management

Unimicron promises to establish a supplier management system and specifications, and communicate with them every year to establish a stable and sustainable development of a win-win strategic partnership. In order to promote the sustainable management of suppliers and build a more resilient supply chain, Unimicron has included aspects of supply chain risks, continuity operations, finances, conflict minerals, etc. in the esg sustainable supply chain management issues and jointly mitigates supply chain risks. In addition, a cross-departmental “Supply Chain Management Committee” assists suppliers in improving and upgrading quality systems, environmental protection, green procurement, and plant safety through regular coaching and auditing, building supplier sustainability.

Unimicron integrates the management system with the procurement process in promoting sustainable supplier management, and requires raw material and equipment suppliers to sign a "Supplier Corporate Social Responsibility Letter of Commitment". The content of this commitment letter is based on the RBA Code of Conduct, the International Labor Organization Convention and the Social Responsibility SA 8000 standards, and the content covers ethics, human rights, and environmental considerations. In Taiwan, participating suppliers accounted for 97% of the transaction amount in 2020 and completed signatories reached 75% of the participating signatories. 100% of the supplier commitment statements of the plants in Mainland China (Unimicron (ShenZhen)/Unimicron (KunShan)/Unimicron (Huangshi)/Unimicron (Suzhou)/Unimicron-FPC (Kunshan)) have been signed. The suppliers of QunHong Technology Inc. have also been signed 84%. In response to the new version of the 2021 RBA Code of Conduct, we renewed the "Supplier Corporate Social Responsibility Letter of Commitment" and invited suppliers to commit, signed and comply with the new code.

Local Procurement

Unimicron adheres to the principle of sustainable corporate social responsibility and hopes to promote the sustainable development of the entire supply chain. Therefore, to promote operational activities and local economic development, Unimicron actively implements localization of materials, and supports the development of local suppliers, all to reduce unnecessary air and water freight costs, as well as the carbon footprint generated during material transportation. In 2020, the local procurement ratio of raw materials purchased by Unimicron in Taiwan was 73%. QunHong Technology Inc. had a local procurement ratio of 83%, and the plants in Mainland China had a local procurement ratio of 84%.
