Sustainability at Infineon

Our sustainability strategy

Microelectronics made by Infineon are the key to attaining better living standards. Our inventiveness and commitment let us create value for customers, staff and investors. We understand how technical systems can be made increasingly efficient through the use of semiconductors, providing sustainable solutions for the world of today and the world of tomorrow. This makes our customers more successful and is an important contribution to society.

In addition to gaining a deeper understanding of our customers’ systems, optimizing our products and solutions, and achieving adequate profitability in line with our targets, it is also imperative that we run our business on a sustainable basis, responsibly committed towards society.

We understand sustainability as the symbiosis between economy, ecology and social engagement, continuously respecting and recognizing the importance of cultural diversity. This is reflected in our CSR Policy that sets guidelines for responsible and sustainable business operation, based on the fulfilment of the legal requirements where we operate and the commitment to follow the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact, which we signed up for in 2004. Furthermore, internal rules and requirements, voluntary self-commitments, as well as our customers' requirements, form an additional framework for our approach.

We anchored our commitment to sustainability even more firmly in our organization by setting up a CSR Board in the 2021 fiscal year. It consists of two members of the Management Board and representatives of Infineon’s specialist departments. The composition of the CSR Board enables it to cover the wide range of CSR topics and ensures that it can discuss current topics and determine at an early stage the measures the company should adopt.

Under the vision “Driving decarbonization and digitalization. Together.” Infineon wants to make an active contribution to global CO2 reduction and to the implementation of the targets set out in the Paris Climate Agreement.

We identify potential impacts that may threaten our organization and provide a framework for building resilience and enabling an effective response to adverse conditions as early as possible. It is also imperative to safeguard our supply chain processes, the supply of products and services to customer and to maintain and enhance shareholder value.  

We make life easier, safer and greener – with technology that achieves more, consumes less and is accessible to everyone.
