Phison has always adhered to ethical corporate management principles, promoting ethical management at different aspects and levels from the Board of Directors down to all units.
All employees, managers, and Board members should follow these principles and set an example for honest, ethical business practices.
The Company is committed to raising the ethical awareness of its employees, providing regular anti-corruption and ethical management educational training and whistleblowing channels for internal and external stakeholders to report dishonest, unethical behaviors to prevent instances of unethical management. In 2020, there has been no cases of corruption or unethical behavior. The Company opened 2 ethical management courses (Integrity management & anti-corruption, Integrity Management/Anti-Corruption/RBA Code of Conduct) to 4,047 personnel this year. The total training hours from these courses totaled 3,211 hours, with an average of 1.47 hours per person.
To ensure the Company adheres to the ethical management principles, a comprehensive auditing and internal control system should be established, with internal auditors reporting to the Board of Directors regularly and establishing relevant regulations:
If a director or the corporate entity they represent is an interested party in relation to an agenda item, they should provide a full disclosure during the current meeting session.
The director shall recuse himself/herself from all discussions and voting if they are in conflict against the company's interests, and shall not exercise voting rights on behalf of other directors.
If the spouse or blood relatives within the second degree of kinship of a director, or a company that has a controlling affiliation with a director, have stakes in the meeting agenda, it is seen as
the director's having a personal stake in the matter.
Where a director is prohibited from exercising voting rights at a Board meeting, the provisions in Article 180-2 of the Company Act shall apply in accordance with Article 206-4 of the same Act. .
This Code of Conduct was instituted to help employees abide by ethical regulations in day-to-day operations and educate stakeholders in the Company's ethical standards and regulations.
This Ethical Code of Conduct was instituted to help Company directors and managers abide by ethical regulations in day-to-day operations and educate stakeholders in the Company's ethical standards.
