■ Ethical Violations
E.SUN did not engage in any code of conducts violations, including corruption or
discrimination or harassment, customer privacy, conflicts of interest and money
or insider trading in 2022. Likewise, no suit or penalty was fined. Meanwhile, all
supervisory units and overseas business locations were told to take a hard look at the
Code of Ethics for Salespeople among other key compliance issues for the year. Next, the
Company's Compliance Division went on to conduct inspection and evaluation with a view
to effectively enforcing risk management and reducing corruption risks.
■ Whistleblowing System
To establish a culture of integrity and transparency and promote sound operation,
E.SUN has formulated the Procedure For Handling Whistleblowing Reports , which is
applicable to its subsidiaries, foundations with direct or indirect cumulative donations
exceeding 50%, and other organizations or legal entities with substantial control. The
procedures clearly define the acceptance and investigation timeline, and establish
dedicated handling units and independent investigation units. E.SUN also sets up
whistleblowing hotlines, email inboxes, and mailing addresses on its official website
and intranet for both internal and external personnel. The identity of whistleblowers
is kept confidential, and adverse personnel measures against internal employee
whistleblowers are strictly prohibited. Anonymous reporting is also allowed to actively
prevent dishonest, fraudulent, and criminal activities.
In 2022, a total of 33 cases were accepted through whistleblowing and nonwhistleblowing
channels, all of which pertained to non-significant violations of
internal regulations, consumer disputes, or events unrelated to banking operations.
There were no violations related to integrity management. While these reports were
immediately presented to the Compliance Division, the President appointed an
appropriate department to conduct investigation. Investigation results were then
submitted to the President, with the whistleblower's identity kept confidential and
the departmental supervisor of the accused also given notice, and the relevant
implementation will be reported to the Corporate Governance and Nomination
Committee and the Board of Directors.
