Key environmental principles are embedded in our Sustainability Policy , a document signed and approved by our CEO. The Sustainability Policy is developed and deployed by the Sustainability Management team.
The EHS Management Board is chaired by the Executive Vice President (EVP) of Operations and supported by senior leaders in business lines and staff functions. It is responsible for environmental management, including strategy, approval and resourcing.
NXP's Sustainability and EHS teams manage annual strategies, policies, goals and metrics. The teams are also responsible for monthly progress reviews.
Proactively assess our management systems to identify and mitigate any potential risks or hazards for both environmental and social issues.
All NXP manufacturing sites conduct internal environmental risk assessments annually. To meet the requirements of ISO 14001, we evaluate potential risks associated with our manufacturing processes, including material handling as well as energy, water, and waste management, to proactively identify, mitigate, and manage potential environmental hazards using programs, procedures, and engineering controls.
As part of our membership in the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA), each of our eight manufacturing sites is required to complete an RBA Self-Assessment that covers environmental and management systems. Conducting self-assessments helps us evaluate potentially significant social and environmental risks at our manufacturing sites so we can apply appropriate mitigation and controls as needed.
Team member training is conducted regularly worldwide to ensure all team members have the knowledge and skills needed to control and minimize environmental risks. This includes on-the-job training, specialized trainings in environmental matters, quality controls and chemical management. Environmental training and awareness includes workers who are instrumental to incident investigations and who help plan management systems elements.
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:
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.
