Apart from requesting existing qualified suppliers to sign and comply with the Commitment, we have started revising some SOPs to include the Commitment as part of a new supplier submittal. Currently, major suppliers of bulk materials and the top five materials suppliers are requested to sign the Commitment. After all suppliers sign the Commitment, unannounced onsite supplier audit for compliance with the Commitment will be implemented from time to time.
The revision of internal SOPs has not yet been completed. For new suppliers recruited in 2020, we encouraged them to sign the “Supplier CSR Undertaking." For those that have not signed the Undertaking, we will include the process for them to sign it alongside existing suppliers in the future.
