We uphold the spirit of local procurement for both general purchases and contract manufacturing to boost the local economy and create local job opportunities. Local procurement also reduces carbon emissions from transportation. In 2020, Realtek had 513 general local suppliers that accounted for 85% of all our procurements by value, and 12 contract manufacturers that accounted for 73% of contract outsourcing. As a responsible member of the supply chain, Realtek regularly assesses supplier performance with the aim of raising core capabilities of local suppliers. We evaluate material shortage risks based on global supply and demand, in order to prevent impact on the company. The proportions of materials sourced in each region are adjusted according to current conditions to support business continuity and the sustainable development of our supply chain.
