Intel received the “CSR Role Model Award” from Premier Wu Den-Yih for the company’s CSR efforts in Taiwan this year. The award recipients are selected based on the results of an annual CSR survey by the Global View Magazine, a prestigious business publication which has been conducting the national survey for 6 years.
The survey is a detailed focus on corporate ethics, integrity, environmental impact, stockholder and employee benefits, supply chain management, consumer rights, community involvement, and financial transparency. Applications are reviewed by a group of judges with experience in various elements of CSR activity including the former President of National Taiwan University, the Chairman of the Environmental and Development Foundation, the CEO of the Government Sustainability Commission, The President of Judicial Yuan (the judicial organization of the government), the Minister of State, and four other leaders from Government, NGO’s and Academia.
Intel was recognized for the Intel® Teach Program, a multifaceted teacher professional development program that trains teachers to use project based instruction to develop their students critical thinking, collaboration and problem solving skills, as well as how to use technology more effectively in the classroom. The Intel Teach program was launched in Taiwan in 2000 as a part of Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed with the Taiwan Ministry of Education to train K-12 teachers in the country.
Intel has participated in the survey for the last three years and is honored to have been selected to receive a 2010 “CSR Role Model Award” in the MNC category together with Citibank and IBM.
Intel Taiwan Country Manager, Stanley Huang received the award from Premier Wu and expressed Intel’s gratitude for the recognition of the company’s CSR efforts.
