Social Concern

Corporate Cultural Inputs and Public Welfare

The power industry has promoted domestic industrial and economic development. In addition to supplying energy to Taiwan, Taipower has created a tangible historical architecture and immaterial collection of memories for Taiwan. In line with Taiwan's pursuit of social development and cultural awareness, the Company has integrated cultural preservation and creative thinking into its development-oriented growth model, promoting corporate humanism in business, public welfare, and the building of a cultural corporate image.

Cultural Contributions

 

The Company actively seeks to promote an appreciation of its responsibilities and its sustainable development philosophy. Through combing the history of Taiwan’s electrical industry development with education, Taipower injects diversity into society and promotes the use of value-added knowledge. The Company established a working group on a Cultural Heritage Preservation, Operation and Maintenance Project to conduct a full inventory of the company’s cultural assets and to help preserve the Company's non- building cultural heritage. The Vice President of Strategy and Administration serves as the convener and the Company uses its Meeting on Important Cultural Heritage Preservation, Operation, and Maintenance Project to promote preservation, research, and communication with society. Taipower adopted the strategies of research-before- education, phased development, and continuous adjustments for its review operations on cultural and historical data in accordance with different themes. The Company inspects, preserves, and displays the resulting cultural and historical data to promote resource sharing and revitalization and to fulfill its corporate social responsibility.

Promotion of Popular Science Education on Energy

"Power Zone Hsinchu" – A Special Exhibition on the Popular Science of Transformer Boxes

 

The "Power Zone Hsinchu" special exhibition on the popular science of transformer boxes was held in Taipei’s Xinyi District for the first time last year. The Hsinchu City Government subsequently invited Taipower to attend its 2020 Taiwan Design Expo, and "Power Zone" was exhibited again at the Confucius Temple in Hsinchu. The semi-transparent wave roofing sheets and steel structure were spread out in a single row based on the exhibition venue's conditions. More than 85% of the materials were recycled from the exhibition in Taipei to meet circular economy values. It became the most fascinating part of the Design Expo and attracted 47,000 visitors in just three weeks.

Major Public Welfare Activities and Sponsorships

Taipower is crucial in empowering Taiwan's economic development. Taipower continues to enhance its partnerships for coexistence and co-prosperity within society. The Company continually increases its investments in culture, art, and philanthropic activities to strengthen Taipower's image as a Practitioner of Corporate Social Responsibilities. The Company’s electricity construction projects have caused changes and impacts on local environments. Neighborhood work and interaction are therefore important to ensure co-prosperity with local communities. The Company's neighborhood work is focused on supporting local philanthropic activities. Taipower’s approach includes emergency relief, life support for low-income households, benefits for the elderly and people with disabilities, education, culture, and other charitable causes. In 2020, there were 4,080 neighborhood work projects and approximately NT$112.53 million in donation.
