Key Initiatives for the Alignment with SDGs
Encouragement for Employees to Participate in Charity Events-As a role model and a benchmark for green enterprises, Delta actively participates in energy education and charity activities.For every public welfare event, Delta invites its employees and their families to join the ranks of volunteers and participate of their own accord. Delta allows employees to take “Charity Leave" so that they can engage in volunteer work without feeling pressure from the workplace.
In China, Delta formally established the Delta Corporate Institute in 2012, According to its training content, the institute is divided into a technical college, a management college, and an advanced studies college.
Management & Professional Training - Delta's global education and training expenditures in 2018
reached USD 3,373,150. training hours for indirect labor increased by 125% from the previous year and Delta's R&D expenditures for technology advancement continued to increase. It showed that Delta's investment in talent development and organizational strategies has remained relatively consistent.
Cooperation with Academia-To actively prepare and cultivate talented personnel, Delta has cooperated with many universities both in Taiwan and abroad to offer programs such as winter and summer internships, on-the-job training plans, cooperative education, cooperative laboratory facilities, and more. We hope that in the near future, we can develop intellectual talent by cooperating closely with these universities.
In its existing training development framework, Delta is diversifying and expanding its learning resources. We are dedicated to the use of internal talent, so that personal knowledge and potential can be effectively applied within the organization’s operations. Delta continues to pursue a transparent and smooth promotion channel, and to increase diversified opportunities for the development of high-potential talent.

*** Popularizing Green Building and Transportation Concepts
Microclimate Data Applications in Green Building Design
Understanding the importance of precise weather information to conserve energy in buildings, Delta collaborated with the Central Weather Bureau, MOTC and Taiwan Architecture & Building Center (TABC). We commissioned Professor Tai-Jan George Chen and his research team from Atmospheric Sciences, NTU to develop the 'Green BIM Microclimate Database.' Architects have free access to the designated website. We completed 26 measurement stations in main metropolitan areas in Taiwan in 2018.
Delta's Building Carbon Footprint Evaluation System Adopted by Authorities
Delta collaborated with the Low Carbon Building Association (LCBA) to promote the Taiwan Building Carbon Footprint Product Category Rule (CFP-PCR) system. Currently city governments, including New Taipei City and Taichung, have adopted the system as a necessary criteria when constructing buildings for urban renewal or for low carbon demonstration sites. Twenty buildings across Taiwan have passed the carbon footprint evaluation including the buildings in the new Taichung World Flora Exposition.
International Climate Think Tank Research Builds Basis for Climate Issues
In 2018, Delta collaborated with the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) for the first time and produced the Local High-Impact Energy Efficiency Strategies Toolkit. This toolkit shows how American cities establish building energy conservation and transportation data disclosure policies as well as the detailed benefits for policies, resources for execution, and policy design elements. We sought to expand the government's imagination for policies, promote dialogue between different stakeholders, and develop guidelines for establishing an energy efficiency governance framework suitable for local governments in Taiwan.
The DeltaMOOCx online learning platform
The DeltaMOOCx online learning platform was specially designed by the Delta Electronics Foundation for regular high schools, engineering and natural science high schools, as well as technical universities. Its fundamental science course design is geared towards a high school curriculum. The Ministry of Education's K-12 Education Administration recommended the best centers and teachers, and the National Academy for Education Research reviewed textbook content. The platform serves the public interest and is offered free of charge.
Different from Taiwan's other learning platforms, DeltaMOOCx chose initially to focus on vocational education as its development core. The platform offers science courses as well teaching industry trends combined with industrial automation courses. This gives students a stable knowledge foundation that is directly beneficial to their higher education. The platform also extends to high school, improving their foundation for sciences, including math, physics, chemistry, biology, and electronics.
Since DeltaMOOCx began in March of 2015, it has reached 146 schools across the country, of which there are 53 high schools and colleges that have viewed the course materials recordings. At the end of 2018, 41,593 people had registered on the platform which provided 4,749 educational videos with views exceeding 4.26 million (including YouTube views.
Occupational safety and health
Occupational Safety and Health Management System
Providing employees with a safe and healthy workplace is one of Delta’s most fundamental obligations as a corporate citizen. Delta's major manufacturing plants in Taiwan, China, and Thailand received the OHSAS 18001 certification, while Delta's Taoyuan and Tainan factories simultaneously received the CNS 15506 certification and obtained the TOSHMS certification.
Occupational Health and Safety Assessment
The plants shall conduct automatic inspections and self-inspections in accordance with government regulations and the Company's operation standards to ensure the safety of employees and plants and to prevent injury to personnel and loss of property.
Mental and Physical Health Promotions for Employees
Delta seeks to foster positive attitude for employees and effectively resolve employees' difficulties at work and in life. We established an employee psychological assistance system to pay attention to employees' mental health and improve employees' happiness factors. We assign experienced and professional psychiatrist teams to establish three levels of preventive measures for protecting mental health. We provide employees with telephone consultation, letters, mail, and face-to-face consultation. A total of 89 consulting sessions were provided in Taiwan in 2018 and we organized 11 courses and seminars in Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs).
Occupational Safety and Health Management Performance
The disabling frequency rate (F.R.) in Delta's main production sites in Taiwan, China, and Thailand in 2018 was 0.65; the disabling severity rate (S.R.) was 8. The disabling injuries consisted mainly of mechanical injuries caused by coiling or clamping mechanisms. Men made up 71% of those injured and female 29%. To prevent such hazards, plants added protective shields or photoelectric sensors or isolated dangerous areas and included them as inspection items. No personnel were killed by occupational hazards in 2018.
