The packaging we use for shipping consists mainly of paper and cardboard (1,580 tons) as well as plastic (3,150 tons). We also use a small amount of wood, in the form of wooden pallets, to ship our products. The 2021 packaging data represents 55% of our sites. We intend to include all NXP sites in future reports.
We use special packaging materials to protect our products from damage during shipment. We are committed to using particularly designed packaging tubes and shipping trays that save on space and weight and are easy to recycle.
We advise our customers on the possibilities for recycling our packaging. The majority of our larger customers have recycling programs in place, however, we don't have accurate figures on how much of our packaging they actually recycle.
