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 the Sustainability and EHS related vision, policies, standards and improvement plans that relate to risk, health and safety. It is supported by our Insurance and Risk Management Department, our Business Continuity Management Office, and our Facilities and Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) Councils, which consist of senior EHS managers from our worldwide sites and Sustainability Office.
The Social Responsibility and EHS Boards have executive-level members representing operations and business groups. The Social responsibility and EHS Boards establishes 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, 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.
