ASE Awarded MOEA’s First “Taiwan Green Classic Award” for IC Packaging

Taipei, Taiwan, Oct. 26, 2011 - Advanced Semiconductor Engineering Incorporated (ASE, TAIEX: 2311, NYSE: ASX), the world’s largest semiconductor packaging and test company, today announced that the company has received the first ‘Taiwan Green Classic Award’ in the IC packaging category, awarded by Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) Bureau of Foreign Trade. The judges, comprising of scholars and experts in the field of environment protection, R&D and design, assessed a selected number of companies based on each company’s ‘green value concepts on product/service’, ‘green supply chain management’, ‘innovative technology and green marketing’ as well as ‘corporate social responsibility’.

For years, ASE has instilled a strong sense of corporate social responsibility and environmental stewardship into our corporate culture. Our customers are assured that we are in full compliance with EU and international regulatory requirements. ASE manufacturing processes are also certified ISO 14064-1 (greenhouse gas verification), ISO 14040 (life cycle assessment), ISO 14025 Category 3 (environmental product declarations), and PAS 2050 (product carbon footprint inventory and verification) compliant.

To further reduce carbon footprint and mitigate any negative impact to the environment, ASE is innovating and developing processes to support eco-friendly-designed products.  For example, the use of advanced processes and technologies to manufacture copper wire packages, and the introduction of large matrix-size substrates, not only increase efficiency but also help conserve energy and reduce waste.

Working closely with all our suppliers, ASE imposes strict requirement for all suppliers to abide by ASE’s green product policies and the laws of countries or regions where they operate. ASE also closely observes conflict metal management and the EICC-GeSI Conflict-Free Smelter Program, and exercises extreme caution on where we and our suppliers source these metals.  ASE regularly holds ‘Green Environment Protection and Sustainable Development Management’ and ‘Greenhouse Gases and Life-cycle Inventory Publicity’ forums for our suppliers.  These continued efforts by ASE help to bring a global effort towards a cleaner, healthier and socially responsible environment.
