Corporate Responsibility Report
An integrated overview of the economic, environmental, and social aspects of NXP's business activities and our commitment to sustainability and transparency.
This corporate responsibility report provides an integrated online overview of the economic, environmental, and social aspects of NXP’s business activities and products. This report is reviewed and updated regularly throughout the year and follows the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards as the main reference for its content. The report includes all NXP operations and joint ventures in which we have a majority share. Reporting of information is for year-end of 2018.
Significant changes have influenced our reporting:
Our commitment to corporate responsibility is at the heart of our ethical standards, policies and business practices. To help guide a global team of approximately 30,000 employees, we developed programs around these key elements: Ethics, Employees, Products, Values, Compliance, Local Initiatives, Transparency, Dialog and the integration of corporate responsibility into our supply chain.
NXP conducts assessments that aim to align corporate responsibility goals with NXP’s business objectives. We incorporate feedback to inform us of the key corporate responsibility issues and their impact on our business. In defining these focus areas, we interviewed our stakeholders, researched best practices in the industry, studied the legislative landscape and reviewed the results from our participation in various industry associations.
As a result, each category that we report on meets three criteria:
Such topics that we believe are of greatest interest to our stakeholders, who want to make informed decisions about NXP’s environmental and social performance are:
|Minimal environmental impact||Carbon footprint||Labor sourcing|
|Contribute to a sustainable society||Chemical management (process and products)||Mineral sourcing|
|Circular economy||Supply chain responsibility|
|Energy||Worker voice and access to remedy|
|Water footprint||Workplace safety|
Sustainability is the responsibility of the CEO and the NXP management team. NXP has a Social Responsibility Board and an EHS Board, responsible for setting and overseeing the vision, policies, standards and improvement plans. It is supported by our Facilities and Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) councils, which consist of senior managers from our worldwide sites, the Sustainability Office, our Business Continuity Management Office and our Insurance and Risk Management Department.
The Social Responsibility and EHS Boards have executive-level members representing operations and business groups. The Social Responsibility and EHS Boards establish the strategy and sets targets, while the sustainability and EHS office performs operational functions. These targets include managing environmental, health, and safety conditions, overseeing the management of chemicals, monitoring and controlling sustainability-related data, supporting customers and contracts, coordinating social investment for human rights and supply chain responsibility, liaising with industry associations, and delivering internal and external communications on sustainability.
The sustainability office meets regularly with the boards to discuss and review NXP’s and our supplier’s performance. Any issues of non-conformance are handled in the sustainability office and if needed, issues are escalated to the board.
All complaints or issues from any stakeholder can be reported to our Ethics SpeakUp line.
