AUO Named To Dow Jones Sustainability World Index For Three Consecutive Years

HSINCHU, Sept. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AU Optronics Corp. ("AUO" or the "Company") (TAIEX: 2409; NYSE: AUO) today announced that the Company has been named to Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) and also headed the Computer Hardware & Electronic Office Equipment (THQ) sector of DJSI World for three consecutive years.  AUO has once again set a new environmental benchmark for the industry in sustainable development and green innovation. 

Noteworthy is that amid the more stringent criteria in the 2012 DJSI assessment, special focus has been devoted to the integration of economy and sustainability issues. AUO managed to achieve the "best scores" against its industry peers in terms of criteria including environmental policy/management system, environmental reporting, hazardous substances, social reporting, stakeholder engagement, customer relationship management, supply chain management, and product stewardship, with particular attention devoted to the latter three this year. AUO stood out again among the world's 2,500 largest companies evaluated, demonstrating that AUO has not only devoted to product innovation, but also collaborated with all its partners to protect the environment and strive toward the goal of sustainability.

AUO has been a dedicated practitioner of green and sustainable operations and launched AUO's Green Ark project by targeting a 25% reduction of carbon emissions in all fabs by 2015. AUO continues to practice green innovation, and obtained the world's first ISO 14045 eco-efficiency assessment of product systems verification. Moreover, AUO is the only company in the global TFT-LCD industry to have received A+ certificate in CSR Report for five straight years, and listed among the top 100 green companies in China for three consecutive years. All these are great honors and fit recognition of the Company's efforts.

Launched in 1999, the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes are the first global indexes tracking the CSR performance of leading companies worldwide and are now some of the most important globally-accepted indicators in reviewing corporate sustainability. The Indexes serve as a driving force to companies in fulfilling their corporate citizenship and offer benchmarks in corporate sustainability for global investors.
