As technology changes how we live, it also impacts how we work. Protecting,
and respecting human rights is a key component of NXP’s ESG commitment.
Every year, the world observes Human Rights Day on December 10th, to
commemorate the UN’s adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
nearly 75 years ago in 1948. It was a different world then: the first computer
program had just been written but semiconductors, mobile phones, and almost
all of the technologies we take for granted today lay years in the future.
At NXP we endeavor to demonstrate respect for human rights through everyday
initiatives and constant re-evaluation to ensure we’re consistent with
evolving stakeholder expectations of our industry. We're committed to
adapting our human rights policy to meet the challenges of continued change,
including issuing an updated statement of principles in 2022 and the continued
rigorous, daily application of our policy to protect and respect human rights
across our business and supply chain.
Bright minds. Bright futures. NXP team members create breakthrough technologies that advance our world.
The future starts here.
Innovating the “S” in ESG
Our newly updated human rights policy reaffirms our core commitments to
sustaining human rights values consistent with global principles and practices
to identify and address any potential adverse impacts associated with our
operations. You can read it in its entirety here.
We’ve innovated ways to implement it, ranging from instilling human rights
awareness and ownership in our team members and other stakeholders through
ongoing support and training and mechanisms for them to provide feedback and
report any issues, to a variety of activities to review, track effectiveness,
publicly report on our performance through our annual Corporate Sustainability
The Willingness to Take Action
Our updated policy states explicitly what we’ll do when we identify actual or
potential impacts on human rights. First, we’ll review and develop action
plans to address and mitigate them, working collaboratively and consultatively
with our team members and/or affected supply chain partners. Then we’ll
implement and track the effectiveness of our mitigation and improvements
measures while making sure to engage and communicate with relevant internal
and external stakeholders.

Meeting the Challenge of Change
With a global manufacturing, supply, and service footprint, NXP’s team members
and other stakeholders are exposed to a wide variety of changes in their lives
as our business and the world develop and deliver new technologies and
experiences. That’s why we remain steadfast in our commitment to provide a
workplace that respects human rights, that is safe and secure, where team
members are consulted and engaged, and where everyone is treated with dignity
and respect .
We're committed to ensuring a workplace that is free of forced, bonded or
child labour, that respects equality, welcomes diversity and inclusivity, is
free of discrimination and harassment, and respects the right to freedom of
association and to collective bargaining.
NXP is proud to join with other leading businesses and NGOs to commemorate the
Human Rights Day, and to continue our commitment to making its principles real
