Business Continuity Management

To ensure business continuity, AUO continuously monitors and invests in risk control and response preparations for potential external and internal operating risks that may impact the company’s operations. The Business Continuity Plan (BCP) is one element in this effort, which helps, in the event of an incident, to maintain key business operations at acceptable and agreed levels. From 2008 to date, AUO has had a BCP in place and has carried out various drills to respond to fires, earthquakes, chemical spills, infectious diseases, and raw materials supply shortages and has had risk management strategies in place and will continue to develop its BCP response capabilities in different scenarios.
