Improving water stewardship

Environmental engagement case study - GQG Partners

Alliance Trust had an allocation to Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) as at 30 September 2020.

Area of engagement

EOS in 2018 encouraged TSMC to take a leadership position on ensuring broader access to water. The company’s fabrication facilities consume a lot of water and Taiwan is exposed to a growing drought risk due to climate change. EOS outlined how the company could play a role in sustainable development by improving water stewardship.


TSMC allocated significant resource to develop the know-how to support its ambition of using reclaimed water in fabrication operations. It started a pilot project and promised to share the knowledge with the government and peers.

Smart measurement systems are now in place. Recycled water with improved quality can replace the demand for city water, contributing to a more sustainable society. In 2019, TSMC achieved the highest score ever recorded by the Alliance for Water Stewardship and its current recycling rate is 86.7%.
