Systems to shape the environement

A motor for a future worth living

For Infineon Austria, sustainability means a good balance between successful business management and more conscious interaction between humans and the environment. "Simpler, safer and greener": these three words manifest clearly in the development of increasingly more energy efficient products and in the corporate culture itself. The role-model effect that arises from this is a strong driving force for further activities for a future worth living it.

Targets to protect humans and environment

Occupational safety, health and environmental protection as well as energy management are the pillars of the holistic sustainability strategy of Infineon Austria. This strategy manifests itself in a program called Infineon Integrated Management Program for Environment, Energy, Safety and Health (IMPRES). This includes all processes, strategies and objectives in the company for protecting man and the environment.

IMPRES has guided the actions of Infineon Austria since 2005. And the topic of energy has been in the spotlight since 2012: Thus for example in 2013 the energy management was matrix certified according to ISO 50001. Infineon now fulfills the new energy efficiency requirements as adopted in July 2014.

Infineon Austria works specifically on improving environmental performance. The company is supported and driven by the Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) of the European Union and the international environmental management standard ISO 14001, to which Infineon voluntarily obligated itself in 1997. In 2013 Infineon Austria received for the second time the EMAS Prize of the Austrian Ministry of the Environment. Infineon Austria is also the first company in Austria to be validated under the EMAS III regulation.
