NXP’s Social Responsibility program builds on the recognition that everything we do must reflect the highest possible standards of ethical business conduct and the respect for human rights.

NXP Social Responsibility Goals

Human rights and employee health and safety are key pillars in our Sustainability Policy and a prominent part of our strategy and goal setting.

Goals 2020 Results
No priority or major findings from internal/customer audits The one RBA Validated Assessment Program (VAP) verification audit conducted in 2020, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, confirmed that all findings were successfully closed.
Internal audit scores >95% Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we only conducted two internal audits in 2020. Both audits received a score of >95%.
Self-assessment score >90% All NXP sites achieved self-assessment scores of >90%.
<60-hour work week and one rest day per six days worked At one site, the 60-hour working limit was exceeded for three workers over the course of two weeks.

NXP in Action

  • UN Forum on Business and Human Rights

    For the third consecutive year, NXP was a featured panelist at the Annual UN Forum on Business and Human Rights. We shared our insights and best practices with the group and, in a special session on lessons learned from the pandemic, we discussed how we handled foreign migrant workers, the most vulnerable in the company’s workforce, who were unable to return home due to travel restrictions.

  • Supporting Foreign Migrant Workers During the Pandemic

    In May 2020, 42 foreign migrant workers (39 Indonesians, 3 Nepalis) from our NXP facility in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, who completed their employment contracts or voluntarily resigned, were left stranded in Malaysia due to Malaysia’s Movement Control Order (MCO), international border closures and flight cancellations. NXP Malaysia provided support to the stranded workers to ensure that their well-being and health and safety were protected during the pandemic. All stranded workers returned home by the middle of July 2020.

  • The Fight Against Modern Slavery

    Impacting the lives of foreign migrant workers through our policies, standards and recruiting practices.
