Social Responsibility

At ON Semiconductor, we are committed to engineering a better tomorrow through the actions we take every day. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) at ON Semiconductor is deeply rooted in our core values of Respect, Integrity and Initiative. We provide our customers around the globe with a broad portfolio of innovative, energy efficient and environmentally friendly semiconductor solutions addressing virtually all market segments. Our CSR efforts focus on continually improving how we operate whether it be related to our business, our governance, our people, our environment or our communities.

As a full member of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) and signatory of the United Nations (UN) Global Compact, we adhere to an industry code (RBA Code of Conduct) and international principles that promote labor & human rights, ethics, and environmental, health and safety (EHS) standards. We recently formalized and launched a global human rights policy to reflect our commitment to preserving and protecting the rights of others as enshrined under the ten principles of the UN Global Compact as well as other international conventions and frameworks. As per our responsibilities as a RBA member, each of our manufacturing sites complete RBA self-assessment questionnaires (SAQ) and undergo either an internal RBA audit or RBA validated audit process (VAP) audit. The target score for each of our facilities is 85% or greater, indicating no to low risk. In 2018, 100% of our facilities met this target. For more information, please visit our CSR page

At ON Semiconductor, we strive to make a positive impact in the communities where our employees work and live. Our financial contributions and employee volunteer efforts target community needs in the areas of disaster relief, the environment, health, human services and science, technology, engineering, arts, & mathematics (STEAM) education. Through our community initiatives, we aim to create a relationship of mutual trust and respect between the company and the local communities in which we operate.

CSR Umbrella

Environmental Sustainability


Our approach to environmental sustainability is guided by our company’s environmental, occupational health and safety policy. The policy forms the basis on which our company establishes, implements, maintains and continually improves our environmental management system. Procedures for our environmental management conform to ISO (International Organization for Standardization) 14001 (Environmental Management Systems) certification. Compliance with and certification to ISO 14001 provides us with a competitive advantage as we use our flexible manufacturing network to meet the needs of customers around the world. External environmental aspects such as communication and third-party verification are emphasized under ISO 14001.


We set five year targets on our environmental conservation performance at our wafer fabs and assembly and test operations. We have targeted a 5% normalized reduction in water usage, electricity consumption, and scope 1 & 2 emissions combined. For chemical usage, we have targeted a 5% reduction in absolute facility chemistry and 3% normalized reduction in manufacturing chemistry. For each of these goals, we use 2015 performance as our baseline year. Each of our factories is also engaged in multiple sustainability projects aimed at recycling, material optimization, reducing chemical usage and conserving water, electricity & fuel.

Climate Change

We are aware of the potential opportunities and risks associated with climate change and have integrated the process of climate change into our business operations and strategy in a number of ways. Through our environmental conservation programs we are focused on reducing our carbon footprint and improving the energy efficiency (electricity and fuel) of our company’s operations. Our enterprise risk management and business continuity programs also consider certain risks associated with climate change such as natural disasters and the associated impacts to our organization, operations, employees, stakeholders, society at large, and strategic business objectives.
