Infineon is one of the world’s most sustainable companies. The company has been included in leading index for sustainability for the twelfth time in a row
Munich, 15 November 2021 – Infineon Technologies AG is one of the most sustainable publicly listed companies worldwide for the twelfth time in a row. That has been confirmed by its renewed inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability™ World Index and in Dow Jones Sustainability™ Europe Index, as now published by the investment company RobecoSAM, which specializes in sustainability.
“Infineon has been included for the twelfth time in a row in the group of the world’s most sustainable companies. That honors our continuous work in the interest of climate protection,” says Constanze Hufenbecher, Chief Digital Transformation Officer at Infineon. “Making more out of less – that’s how Infineon is contributing to electrification and digitalization, and hence to achieving the climate goals. For Infineon, being included in the Dow Jones Sustainability™ World Index and the Dow Jones Sustainability™ Europe Index is an incentive to continuously align our strategy to using the resources in our world more efficiently.”
As a leading manufacturer of semiconductors for power electronic systems, Infineon makes a significant contribution to energy efficiency across the entire energy chain. With the help of Infineon’s products and solutions, 35 times more CO2 emissions can be saved over their lifetime than were created during production.
Infineon is also committed to climate protection in its own business operations. Infineon aims to work 100 percent climate-neutrally from 2030. Pursuing this goal, the company has already switched its entire power consumption in Europe to generation from renewable energies in 2021.
Infineon is actively involving employees and management in the sustainability strategy. The variable remuneration component for the Management Board, for example, also depends on progress made in achieving environmental, social and corporate governance sustainability goals (ESG goals).
The Dow Jones Sustainability Index is regarded as one of the most important benchmarks for sustainability and lists the world’s leading companies from 61 industries. The assessment is based on the companies’ economic, environmental and social performance. It aims to help investors make an informed decision on how to align their portfolio more clearly to sustainability aspects, and to encourage companies to continue to drive forward their efforts regarding sustainability.
