EHS Management Board

Our EHS Management Board is responsible for environmental management, including strategy, approval and resourcing. The EHS Management Board is chaired by the Chief Operations and Manufacturing Officer and supported by senior leaders in business lines and staff functions.

Sustainability and EHS Leadership Teams

NXP's Sustainability and EHS Teams manage annual strategies, policies, goals and metrics and review progress monthly. Corporate EHS and the Global EHS Leadership Team collectively establish risk-mitigation strategies and develop and deploy standards, programs and procedures to reduce environmental, health and safety impacts and risks worldwide.


NXP's data-management system tracks and calculates our environmental performance per manufacturing site. On a quarterly basis, the Sustainability Office validates the reported data for every site that: a) we own, rent, lease or manage, b) has 50 or more team members and c) is included in our financial reporting.

Validation consists of the following steps:

  • Check for completeness of data (sites and parameters)
  • Compare data from the previous period with data from current reporting period
  • Determine whether changes in data are significant
  • Seek explanations for any significant data changes
  • Investigate significant events

EHS also conducts internal data audits of our manufacturing sites as well as our larger office and R&D sites. The audits check for proper reporting procedures and data trails.
