Go beyond limits in sustainability
Sustainability is an essential part of successful, long-term business. We aim to lead the way with ambitious targets, such as achieving climate neutrality by 2040, helping to make an energy-intensive industry more sustainable. We are aware of our role and responsibility as a major supplier to the electronics industry and take a three-pronged approach to creating real impact: by optimizing our own production, by supporting our customers, and by engaging in multi-stakeholder initiatives.
We thrive on supporting our customers on their sustainability journey by providing access to world-class, high-tech materials and technology, paving the way for made-to-measure solutions. Building on our extensive network of local sites, we actively contribute to fewer emissions, lower costs, and resource-saving business processes.
The independent Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) confirmed that our targets correspond to the current status of climate science. Consequently, we are helping to limit global warming to 1.5°C, thus meeting the requirements of the Paris Agreement.
Our long term goals
In 2030, we will achieve human progress for more than one billion people through sustainable science and technology.
By 2030, we will integrate sustainability into all our value chains.
By 2040, we will achieve climate neutrality and reduce our resource consumption.
Our holistic approach
The difference we make stems from a corporate culture that for more than 350 years has been driven by strong values, embodied by our understanding of sustainable entrepreneurship at all our sites around the world.
In addition, we deliver positive impact beyond our business with a traceability system for certain raw materials, sustainability criteria for every new solution or product that comes from our R&D, and social projects in local communities.
