Taipei, April 27 (CNA) The Taiwan Stock Exchange (TWSE) will hold a conference on May 5 for auditing executives of listed companies to improve their professional knowledge and raise awareness of their companies’ social responsibility.
Leading executives in the auditing departments of 109 listed companies across several sectors, including semiconductors and electronic components, have been invited to attend the conference covering corporate social responsibility and a whistleblower reporting mechanism, TWSE has said.
The conference will be the latest in its series of gatherings on corporate governance, part of the TWSE’s ongoing campaign to promote better corporate management and help enterprises compile corporate social responsibility (CSR) reports.
CSR means that beyond doing everything they can to pursue revenue growth and maximize the benefits of their stockholders, companies should also contribute to society and minimize their environmental footprint through their core capabilities, TWSE said. [FULL STORY]
