We are living in the midst of global warming,climate change, and many pollutions. ChipMOS understands the strengths and impacts of an enterprise and as such, we encourage our employees to launch a series of initiatives to be more friendly and to give back to the environment. To implement these strategies, we began at the core of the organization and began outward. Starting from the Company, we gradually extended the caring to our surroundings, and finally, to all the land. To exert the greatest benefits, we took the initiative to observe local needs and to encourage employees to undertake responsible environmental actions to counter climate change and global warming in practice.
