Sustainable Development Committee
The Message from ESG Committee
KENDA (the “Company”) is a tire manufacturer that has been in operation for more than sixty years. Over the past 60 years, the Company has always committed to Mr. Jing Bao Yang’s (the founder) philosophy of “Honesty, Quality, Service and Innovation” to reach the pinnacle of success. The Company started to issue Corporate Social Responsibility Report in 2016. In order to reach the goal of re-innovation and transformation of the Company, upgrading corporate governance and deepening sustainable management, the board of the Company established ESG Committee in early 2022.

The Company is not only a tire manufacturer, but also a corporate, together with business operation and profit making, focusing on environmental protection, corporate governance and social responsibility through the operation of ESG committee to show the Company’s great attention to the corporate mission.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is the key idea of this committee. The initial prospects and visions of the ESG committee:
(1) to cope with the Company to establish 17 key indicators of environmental protection and energy conservation (E), social responsibility and care (S), corporate governance and risk control (G), so that the Company has concrete and clear ESG goal.
(2) not only to extend the strategy of sustainability to employees, but also to extend it internationally. While creating profits and enhancing international competitiveness, the Company is able to comply with regulations and standards to take on environmental protection, reduce environmental risks from climate change and related social responsibilities.
(3) to demonstrate sustainable management results digitally for stakeholders such as employees, shareholders, invertors, suppliers, government and general public to better understand the Company’s performance, to gain more confidence, and to invest and cooperate with the Company with affirmation.
The ESG committee anticipates the Company not only rolls the tires, but also extends the concept, responsibility and obligation of ESG to every corner of the world along with the track of the tire.
