ASE Technology Holding - Questionnaire on climate change and water security impacts

Global transition and physical risks/opportunity induced by climate and water crisis cause significant impacts on the economy, environment and society. In addition to internal analyses and assessments, ASE would like to obtain feedback from external stakeholders through this questionnaire. We sincerely invite you to fill out this questionnaire to provide valuable opinions and suggestions based on your understanding of ASE and carbon/water issues, and help us better develop mitigation and adaptation strategies towards sustainability.

Please indicate your relation with ASE:
