Identification of Material Topics

Once the stakeholder groups have been identified, we collect their opinions through a questionnaire survey. Matrix analysis is then implemented based on the degree of stakeholders’ concerns on each topic and the impacts of each issue on economic, environmental, and social aspects. Domestic and international trends in sustainability disclosure as well as material topics identified by benchmark corporates and our industry peers are also compiled for regular review and screening.

GIGABYTE identified 27 material topics in 2020 and, through a rigorous identification process, 12 highly material topics are sifted out for priority in disclosure. The corresponding management policies and actions are also disclosed in the report. As for the other 8 material topics, appropriate disclosure is also provided according to the extent of stakeholder concern and their impacts on GIGABYTE operations.
