SDG Group Heading to The Future

On the 2020 December 12th, the book launch event of the《The Power of Reliable Partners》, I came up with the idea of establishing the SDG Group, which combines with the Sustainable Development Goals and aims to cultivate more than 100 ESG companies by 2030. Meanwhile, I named 2021 as the SDGs Debut year and 2022 SDG as the Takeoff year! Despite the epidemic situation continuing to be severe and the international political economy instability, however, this wish begins to sprout and grow with the support of employees and partners. Each branch developed its way, and I felt steadfast!!

I always describe the SDG Group as a takeoff plane, and I’m the driver-guide. The mission is to guide the management team to lead and direct them in the right direction. As the plane is at 36000 feet and activates the auto pilot mode is the moment SDG Group is heading to the future!

In 2020 the epidemic began to spread, and the countries started to lock down; affected by this situation, the international business events were suspended, and I began to think about whether to return to school? Recommended by CTO David Wang(Retired), I enrolled on the EMBA at Fu Jen Catholic University. MEAN WELL established the SDG College in march 2022, with Fu Jen professors' support, to learn with managers together! This project is reflected in the value net trend, matching SDG Group's spirits: Reliable Partners for Sustainable Development.

This year I added keeping pace with the times and the ESG spirit into the mission and vision of MEAN WELL. Despite the international political and economic instability, I expect all employees and partners could keep learning and improving. We could achieve sustainable development goals by advancing with the times of innovation and optimization!

In the classic science fiction action film 【Independence Day】 , the US leader said in the speech that the global partners must unite for the common interest, and avoid causing death to one another, and I feel the same way about this! Finally, I expect that partners could give more support to the succession team and create a better environment for our next generation. I wish you continue to enjoy the balance between work and life, good health and peace to all in your family!
