Committee

ESG Committee*

The ESG Committee is the highest ESG governance unit of the CHC Group. Chaired by the CEO of CHC, the committee is composed of the senior management of the three major business units and the heads of CHC’s functional units. The committee is also made up of members with diverse cultures, backgrounds, expertise, and experiences. Regular committee meetings are convened to identify risks and opportunities on the three aspects of environmental (E), social (S), and governance (G), as well as to formulate a sustainable development strategy for the Group to promote ESG-related work for the entire company. All development plans must be approved by the Chairperson and reported to the Board of Directors. *Note: The CSR Committee was renamed as the ESG Committee, effective July 1st, 2021.

ESG Committee Structure

Key area of Work

The ESG Committee has established the principle of materiality in accordance with the GRI Standards, using the four major procedures of "identification, analysis, confirmation, and inspection" to identify and select key sustainable themes. Upon collecting, analyzing, and ranking the priority of economic, environmental, and social importance among domestic construction, real estate, and related industries, the committee determines the hierarchy of implementing environmental, social, and corporate governance issues related to the company’s operations, and sets corresponding risk management strategies and performance targets. The following is a high level recap from the new environmental risk management strategies and practices newly set by the Group in 2020:

Category Type of Risk Identified Risk Items Management Practices
Risk Physical Extreme Weather Events
  • The frequency of extraordinary climate

events is gradually increasing. Strong winds,

torrents, hail, etc. may cause equipment

damage, disasters in construction/operation

sites, and project delays, resulting in property

losses, increased operating costs, and

deferred operating revenues.

  • When the Central Weather Bureau issues

a typhoon special report, the emergency response

personnel are dispatched at the same time to the

operating site in order to secure facilities, initiate

disaster prevention preparations, and conduct

regular inspections to effectively control the

situation.

  • In the event of a disaster, an emergency

response measure will be initiated and disaster

relief resources will be allocated to mitigate impacts

and reduce losses.

  • In case of equipment damage, repair will be

done immediately or the spare pool will be activated

to ensure discharged water meets the effluent

standard.

  • Continue to enhance construction strategy,

dispatch manpower with flexibility, evaluate and

purchase natural disaster insurance

  • The short-duration heavy rainfall

causes excessive inflow of water, which may

cause the sewage treatment to be affected

by the following:

 

1. Overload of the effluent treatment

equipment and flooding of the plant area,

increasing the risk of equipment damage

and reducing treatment efficiency

 

2. Displacement of the manhole cover in the

factory, causing danger to pedestrians and

vehicles

  • Regularly follow the heavy rainfall reports

issued by the Central Weather Bureau, and monitor

inflow water volume. The plant will implement

emergency measures when the inflow water volume

overload:

1. Carry out in-factory bypass operations and notify

relevant authorities

2. Dispatch personnel to the hot spot where the

manhole cover has been displaced, and set up

traffic control facilities

3. Set up water gates at important buildings or

low-lying areas

4. Set up waterproof sandbags and emergency

pumping motors to prevent equipment damage in

case of flood, and to ensure the safety of

pedestrians, vehicles, and employees

  • Risk of damage to the power system of

the operating plant

  • Regularly inspect and maintain equipment

and systems to ensure that lightning protection

systems, generators and other equipment can

operate normally during emergencies

  • If the power system is damaged, measures are

taken immediately to repair the system

  • High temperature will increase the risk

of heat hazards when workers are working

outdoors

  • Global warming may affect the usage

efficiency of building materials and the

supply and demand of the building

materials, resulting in increasing

operating costs

  • High temperature may cause the risk

of reduced water production in sewage

treatment plants

  • To prevent heat hazards from workers

working outdoors, the following precautions are set

up or implemented within construction sites during

summer and are listed as key occupational safety

audit items. Through continuous promotion and

inspection, the awareness and attention of

subcontractors and workers on heat hazards will

be improved, and risks will be reduced

 

1. Workers’ resting area with shaded roof

2. Provide drinking water

3. Set up water sprinkler, water spray, and cooling

electrical equipment

4. Set up thermometer and hygrometer

5. Slogans for heat hazards prevention, and

regularly send out information through electronic

copy on “Heat Hazards Prevention” to employees

for reference

 

  • The Group pays attention to the trend of

building materials design and keep track on the

issue of cost changes in order to manage and

control the construction cost of each project, as well

as regularly reviews and enhances the construction

strategy to reduce the project delay time caused by

high temperature

  • In order to cope with the high temperature

risk faced by the sewage treatment plant, a water

curtain system for air extraction has been set up

and the ventilation volume of the plant has been

increased

Transitional Market
  • žThe market demand may change in

response to climate change, which may

affect the Group’s existing products and

services

  • Sustainability awareness is rising, and

the preference for building materials and

equipment has shifted, which may increase

construction cost

  • žRegularly review the impact of climate change

issues on the market, and actively develop green

innovative products

  • Pay attention to the trend of building

materials design and keep track on the issue of cost

changes in order to manage and control the

construction cost of each project

Policies and Regulations
  • In response to climate change issues,

the competent authority has incorporated

environmental externalities and sustainability

factors in laws and regulations, which will

affect product design and business behavior,

and increase environmental costs for

companies

  • Actively follow and understand domestic

policy trends and international trends in order to

develop corresponding strategies in advance.

Product design is shifted towards environmental-

friendly and smart technology oriented, and to study

on obtaining relevant certifications, ex. carbon

footprint

  • Re-examine and re-evaluate operational risks

and opportunities with focus on ESG-related topics

Strategy, Objectives and Perormance
