Taipei, Taiwan, December 3rd 2021 – Commissioned by Taiwan’s Industrial Development Bureau under the Ministry of Economic Affairs and conducted by global brand consulting company Interbrand, the “Best Taiwan Global Brands” survey of 2021 has published its results. GIGABYTE Technology, an industry leader renowned for its cutting-edge technological innovations, has come in at number 23, with an estimated total brand value of US$ 75 million. GIGABYTE’s vision, “Upgrade Your Life”, is the key to bringing high tech closer to everyday life. GIGABYTE expresses its commitment to customers around the world through a variety of channels, such as the innovative “GIGABYTE Virtual Show”, an online virtual exhibition. Being recognized as one of Taiwan’s best global brands proves that GIGABYTE’s long-term dedication has built a reputable and influential international brand.
GIGABYTE Chairman Mr. Dandy Yeh says, “At GIGABYTE, we ‘Upgrade Your Life’ by advancing the world with groundbreaking smart technologies that improve the way we live and work.” GIGABYTE has its finger on the pulse of the latest trends, whether it is personal computer products in the consumer market, or server products and smart city solutions for enterprises. GIGABYTE devotes considerable resources to developing new tech and fine-tuning designs, so it can deliver the first-class IT products and services that affirm GIGABYTE’s position as a leading tech brand.
GIGABYTE’s PC products encompass motherboards, graphics cards, laptops, and other devices for gamers and creators alike. Users benefit from incredible processing power that satisfies their computing needs. GIGABYTE’s servers and smart city products incorporate the latest artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), high performance computing (HPC), cloud and edge computing breakthroughs to deliver solutions for enterprises and other organizations. Brilliant new inventions that change the way we live, such as autonomous vehicles and smart medicine applications, have been made possible with GIGABYTE solutions.
GIGABYTE is also actively involved in corporate social responsibility (CSR) and projects related to environment, society, and governance (ESG). Back in 2009, GIGABYTE committed to reducing carbon emissions by 50% by 2030. This year, GIGABYTE is pleased to announce it will achieve its goal by 2025—five years ahead of schedule. GIGABYTE’s “Green Action Plan”, which is in its twelfth consecutive year, includes the program “Thousand Mile Trek - Go Green Taiwan”, in which volunteers walk across Taiwan to pick up rubbish; and the UNEP-affiliated “Trillion Tree Campaign”, of which GIGABYTE was the first Taiwanese sponsor. GIGABYTE has worked hard to introduce environmental education to schools; it has organized twenty “Plant-for-the-Planet Academies” and empowered over 1,300 “Climate Justice Ambassadors” around the globe. Starting in 2001, the GIGABYTE Education Foundation has hosted the “GIGABYTE Great Design” Award every year to inspire young minds to better the world with technology. GIGABYTE remains dedicated to employee well-being; in 2020, GIGABYTE was one of ten Taiwanese companies honored by Forbes in its annual list of the “World's Best Employers”.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, GIGABYTE has worked even harder to deliver innovations that will make the world a better place. Not only has GIGABYTE expanded its personal computer and server product lines, which are necessities in the “stay-at-home economy”, it has also devoted considerable production capacities and R&D resources to rolling out tech products that will help fight the pandemic. Examples include the 5G-enabled remote health monitoring system and the contactless thermometer, which utilizes AI to scan the body temperatures of multiple persons in a crowd. GIGABYTE has worked with the government of Turkey to produce its domestic ventilator product “Sahra”; in addition, GIGABYTE has donated a 222 nm UV disinfection door to the Hsin-Chu Branch of National Taiwan University Hospital, as well as air-conditioned “mobile quarantined testing capsules” for other Taiwanese hospitals. To safeguard its employees, GIGABYTE has installed its own AI-enhanced facial recognition systems and temperature sensors to ensure workplace safety. It has also provided workers with the option to work from home, flexible work hours to avoid rush hours, as well as paid leave when employees need to go get vaccinated.
GIGABYTE will continue to invest in innovations that will advance society, such as superb processing power to help humanity usher in the smart world of tomorrow. GIGABYTE will also strive towards the sustainable goals of “zero waste and zero pollution, the adoption of low emissions tech, the introduction of sustainable cycles, and the pursuit of humanistic values”. As always, GIGABYTE will work closely with partners and clients in the industry to create solutions that will change the world for the better. This is the ideal way for GIGABYTE to leverage its brand value and influence to fulfill its vision: “Upgrade Your Life”.
