The growth and prosperity of a company come from social resources and the support of the public. With a deep sense of gratitude and appreciation, the Board of Directors of Getac Holdings sets aside a portion of profits each year and allocates it to the "Getac Holdings Charity Trust Fund." In 2022, as the world gradually recovered from the pandemic and social interactions and activities resumed, the Company continued to focus on education and social welfare. We established long-term partnerships with various non-profit organizations, social welfare foundations, care centers, and intelligent development centers, supporting their organizational development and participating in safeguarding programs. Our efforts aimed to provide assistance and care to underprivileged families, rural education, and child welfare. In 2022, a total of NT$450,000 was spent to support the disadvantaged in society.

Starting from 2023, Getac encourages employees to actively engage in social welfare and environmental sustainability volunteer activities. We take the initiative in planning these activities and designate specific days as "Sustainable Volunteer Day." On this day, employees have the option to either work at the company or participate in volunteer activities organized by us.
To enhance employee participation, we take care of all arrangements, including itinerary planning, transportation, meals, and souvenirs for the volunteers. Moving forward, we will continue organizing a diverse range of ESG activities that are environmentally friendly. For instance, tree planting and supporting local organic farming initiatives are on the agenda. Through Sustainable Volunteer Day, our colleagues can develop ecological conservation awareness and demonstrate their commitment to reducing carbon footprints in their daily lives. This approach is a crucial step towards achieving sustainable business operations and net-zero carbon emissions. Additionally, we actively contribute to local community revitalization efforts, promoting the well-being and harmony of the places where we operate.
In response to World Earth Day, Getac organized its first "Beach Cleanup Volunteer Day" on a make-up work day, March 25th. Employees were called upon to participate in a beach cleanup activity at Fulung Beach. The central theme of the event was "Low Carbon, Zero Trace, Green Living," emphasizing the practice of low-carbon activities. From the planning stage to execution, extra efforts were made to avoid generating environmental pollution, reducing carbon emissions, and minimizing environmental contamination, all in the spirit of creating a more eco-friendly and sustainable environment for our planet.
A total of 151 employees actively participated in this volunteer activity, and the event adopted the "International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) Data Card" designed by the Ocean Conservancy (TOC) to classify marine debris. This standardized data card allowed for uniform calculation standards for marine waste collected from various locations worldwide. Throughout the beach cleanup campaign, an impressive 154.4 kilograms of coastal waste were removed, showcasing the fruitful outcome of this effort. For more details, you can refer to the news coverage of Getac 's Beach Cleanup Day event.
Getac Team Building Camp: The Quest for Liao Tian-Ding's Treasure
In response to the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to support "Local Revitalization," Getac takes action to address issues caused by urban-rural disparities, such as population outflow, aging, and economic decline in local communities. The concept of "Local Revitalization" focuses on leveraging local characteristics, revitalizing the area, and supporting the economic development of local communities.
On June 17th, on a make-up work day, Getac organized the " Getac Team Building Camp: The Quest for Liao Tian-Ding's Treasure" activity. The event not only provided competitive prizes, meals, and local souvenirs but also integrated the idea of "Local Revitalization" into the team-building camp.
A total of 420 employees participated in the event, engaging in team competitions with local businesses. This not only tested team cohesion among colleagues but also fostered camaraderie and balanced physical and mental well-being. Through interactive games related to the historical significance of Dadaocheng, participants delved into the local culture and stories of the area. Additionally, the event included opportunities to taste local cuisine and enjoy exclusive discounts at local establishments, contributing to the economic vitality of the neighborhood and promoting sustainable local development.
Connecting creative energy to industry development and transforming inspiration into tangible and achievable plans has always been the direction that Getac Investment and Control encourages young people to pursue. Getac Investment and Control, along with its affiliated companies, wholeheartedly promotes the "Youth Show Cup Creative Competition." In 2003, the Youth Show Foundation entered campuses and organized the "First Youth Show Cup Creative Digital Content Competition." Over the past twenty years, it has nurtured over 30,000 young students, providing a platform for practical creativity and self-expression for domestic colleges and universities. The competition has become a representative benchmark for fostering talent and has evolved alongside Taiwan's digital technology and design education development.
With the goal of cultivating international digital content and design talent, the competition has been walking hand in hand with the younger generation, creating a glorious future of innovation for Taiwan's industries.
The 20th Youth Innovation Cup is themed "Cultivating a Sustainable New Future." It responds to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Sustainable development is no longer just empty talk; it has become a tangible action guideline and a common language for the world. With regards to achieving net-zero carbon emissions, the intersection of sustainability issues and digital innovation technology is crucial for strengthening sustainable development and stimulating the circular economy in industrial development.
Getac Holdings encourages participating teams to develop conceptual proposals for the application software or VR scene application of rugged laptops and tablet computers in special environments such as national defense, public safety, logistics, transportation, healthcare, industry, and natural resources. The proposals should embody environmentally friendly and sustainable innovation concepts, opening up possibilities for innovative design and digital creation and constructing a future blueprint for smart technology, ecological environment, and sustainable development. This year's digital application and industrial design category can be broadly divided into three major directions: sustainable environmental and ecological issues, applications of environmentally friendly materials; detection and assistance in future transportation and public safety; and the development of educational and entertaining projects integrating SDGs and technology.
The works of the winners in each category not only impress with their creativity but also demonstrate feasibility and relevance to real-life situations. In the Dynamic Image category, the winner of the Getac Technology Creative Marketing award, titled "The Harder It Gets, the Stronger It Gets," received high praise from the judges. It showcased a high level of video production and sparked public awareness of the impact of war disasters and abnormal climate on Earth, emphasizing the ability for individuals to contribute to human survival.
