Responding to the SDGs
Implementing the 9 focused SDGs as our priorities, integration and reporting develops.
Good Health and Well-being
Minimize the use of hazardous substances and reduce emissions to air, water and soil.
NXP minimizes the use of hazardous substances through phase out programs wherever technically possible. We mitigate the risks through engineering controls, process optimization to reduce emissions to air, water and soil.
NXP supports employee and community health and wellness programs focused on increasing physical activities and promoting a healthy lifestyle. There is global participation in company-organized initiatives aimed at serving our local communities through employee volunteerism.
Promote the advancement in science, technology, engineering and math education globally.
NXP collaborates with schools and institutions to bring quality education to our younger generation. Through our community engagement, sponsorships, employee volunteerism, and employee giving we are committed to promoting educational endeavors that encourage students to learn about science, technology, engineering, and math to help inspire future innovators.
Clean Water and Sanitation
Manage and conserve water use and ensure high standards of effluent and wastewater treatment.
NXP’s 2020 goal is to reduce our normalized water consumption by 30% from a 2010 baseline.
At NXP, we promote environmental management with the goal of helping resolve social issues such as maintaining clean water supply for our communities. Our projects focus on the reduction of water consumption in manufacturing and increased onsite water reuse/recycling.
We monitor and manage the quality of wastewater discharged into the communities in which we operate by utilizing onsite water treatment facilities and continuous monitoring/testing as required by local authorities. We treat our discharge water before it is returned.
Affordable and Clean Energy
Manage and conserve the consumption of energy in our operations and offices.
Develop energy-efficient manufacturing processes and reduce our normalized energy consumption by 30% in 2020 from a 2010 baseline. Annually, each site has energy conservation projects to reduce our energy consumption. In addition, NXP will gradually increase our consumption of renewable energy based on availability options in the area in which we operate.
Decent Work and Economic Growth
Protect labor and human rights while working in safe and secure environments for our own employees, in our supply chains and communities.
The NXP Sustainability Policy and NXP’s Supplier Code of Conduct requires decent and safe working conditions, decent living quarters, wage, and benefits.
Working hours shall not be more than 60 hours per week, except in emergency or unusual situations. Workers shall have at least one day off after six consecutive work days.
NXP’s goal is to have zero work-related injuries, using the OSHA standard for measuring and reporting. For a semiconductor company, NXP has a low injury rate (TCIR).
NXP collaborates, trains, audits, and re-audits our factories and our supply chain to verify that the health and safety of workers are compliant to the NXP Social Responsibility Auditable Standards. These standards address the living and working conditions are safe and healthy.
NXP’s 2025 goal is to engage with external stakeholders to analyze our social responsibility and human rights programs and find opportunities to impact the lives of workers from human rights abuses, with NXP led initiatives.
Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
Provide clean and environmentally sound technologies and operations that address societal demands, foster innovation and build sustainable infrastructures.
NXP technology solutions support sustainable energy management for green cities and homes. These applications range from appliances, smart building designs, smart homes making them more connected, convenient, and secure.
NXP is committed to its leadership role for the next generation of industrial IoT and Industry 4.0 applications enabling greater machine safety, connectivity, and productivity.
NXP’s chemical management projects are innovating ways to reduce certain chemicals and replacing them with environmentally friendly alternatives. We are introducing the newest PFC abatement systems in our factories to reduce our Scope 1 emissions. We have designed and implemented new tools in our testing procedures to reduce the amount of emissions from heat transfer fluids that also contribute to Scope 1 emissions.
Sustainable Cities and Communities
Implement industry leading practices to deliver state-of-the-art solutions for automotive safety security.
NXP technology solutions make systems smarter and secure. These applications include real-time vehicle-to-vehicle infrastructure communication systems and secure public transportation smart cards for a more intelligent urban transportation system.
Leading cities worldwide will employ Intelligent Roadside Units powered by NXP technologies to help smooth traffic flow, improve safety, emergency response and provide additional services.
Responsible Consumption and Production
Manage and efficiently use chemicals, natural resources and reduce waste through prevention and reduction.
NXP implements due diligence processes to reasonably assure that all minerals in our products are obtained, produced, and used in a socially responsible manner. We partner with responsible suppliers to source minerals that do not contribute to human rights abuses around the globe.
We design and provide products that meet all relevant regulatory and customer-defined restrictions on the use of substances. We produce products that are responsibly sourced and produced in a manner that does not contain banned chemical substances.
NXP’s goal is to phase out chemicals of concern from our manufacturing and recycle chemicals in a responsible manner. NXP’s 2020 goal for recycling is 90% of generated waste is recycled.
Develop energy efficient technology and mitigate climate change risks within our operations.
NXP technology helps reduce CO2 emissions by reducing the energy consumption in end-products, e.g. improving the flow of traffic, enabling electrical driving and making end user electronics energy efficient.
Our chips are reducing emissions through automated and vehicle-to-vehicle connected traffic by reducing energy consumption significantly. Smart solutions in battery control and energy management enables efficient use and regeneration of energy, resulting in lower emissions in electric and hybrid vehicles.
In addition, we increase energy efficiency of power adapters reducing power consumption in 5G networks and enable energy-friendly edge processing of IoT devices.
NXP’s 2020 goal is to reduce our normalized carbon footprint by 30% from a 2010 baseline.
Our goal is to optimize site emission reductions, increase the number of abatement projects and substitute chemicals to reduce emissions from our processes.
