The Sustainability report is an overview of the economic, environmental and social aspects of NXP’s business activities and products. NXP’s Sustainability report is an interactive web-based report that is updated throughout the year. Each link (chapter) underneath Sustainability on the left-hand navigation is part of the overall Sustainability report. A downloadable PDF is also available for historical purposes.
Sustainability is the responsibility of the CEO and the NXP management team. NXP has a Social Responsibility Board and an EHS Board, responsible for setting and overseeing the vision, policies, standards and improvement plans. It is supported by our Facilities and Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) councils, which consist of senior managers from our worldwide sites, the Sustainability Office, our Business Continuity Management Office and our Insurance and Risk Management Department.
The Social Responsibility and EHS Boards have executive-level members representing operations and business groups. The Social Responsibility and EHS Boards establish the strategy and sets targets, while the sustainability and EHS office performs operational functions. These targets include managing environmental, health, and safety conditions, overseeing the management of chemicals, monitoring and controlling sustainability-related data, supporting customers and contracts, coordinating social investment for human rights and supply chain responsibility, liaising with industry associations, and delivering internal and external communications on sustainability.
The sustainability office meets regularly with the boards to discuss and review NXP’s and our supplier’s performance. Any issues of non-conformance are handled in the sustainability office and if needed, issues are escalated to the board.
All complaints or issues from any stakeholder can be reported to our Ethics SpeakUp line.
This sustainability report follows the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards as the main reference for its content. The report includes all NXP operations and joint ventures in which we have a majority share. Reporting of information is for year-end of 2019.
Changes that have influenced our reporting:
NXP conducts assessments that aim to align Sustainability goals with NXP’s business objectives. We incorporate feedback from stakeholders to inform us of key Sustainability issues and their impact on our business. In defining these focus areas, we interviewed our stakeholders, researched best practices in the industry, studied the legislative landscape and reviewed the results from our participation in various industry associations.
As a result, each category that we report on meets three criteria, is greatly significant, has a current or potential impact on the company, and a matter over which we, as a company, have a reasonable degree of control.
