As a socially committed company, we consider as a voluntary approach to make an ongoing positive contribution to the development of the local communities in which we operate. Corporate Citizenship, understood as our voluntary commitment to these communities, is therefore a key component and one of the six pillars of our CSR strategy.
Based on the ten principles contained in the UN Global Compact, the OECD’s (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) UN Millennium Development Goals and the UN Local Agenda 21, Infineon has created the so-called Corporate Citizenship Guidelines .
This Corporate Citizenship Guideline helps us to ensure that our donations make a sensible contribution to the communities supported and are carried out in accordance with transparent criteria and that the final activities supported comply with the ethical standards which orientated our business.
Infineon supported 197 activities worldwide in the 2020 fiscal year 3 percent of the donations were local investments in the communities with which we interact, and 97 percent were donations to charitable causes.
In addition to monetary and material donations, we are proud of the commitment of our employees in voluntary activities supported in all these fields of initiatives.
