Message from Our CEO

At onsemi, we are driven to impact tomorrow through the actions we take today. Guided by this principle, we take ownership and hold ourselves accountable to our environmental, social and corporate governance objectives. We believe technology plays a critical role in positive change, enabling us to solve our planet’s biggest challenges.

In this 2023 Sustainability Report, we are proud to share the many operational improvements and progress we have made towards the journey in meeting our Net Zero by 2040 goal.

Net Zero Commitment

We are working to create a climate transition plan to meet Net Zero 2040. We’re exploring the use of available levers for reducing emissions across Scope 1 and 2 internally at our facilities, along with pathways for engaging suppliers and other reduction strategies in the value chain for Scope 3 emissions reductions outside onsemi’s direct control.


We’re determining the appropriate milestone tasks, metrics and key performance indicators to use for our climate transition plan, allowing us to track our progress over time.

Product Stewardship

onsemi is focused on innovation to create intelligent power and sensing technologies that solve the most challenging customer problems. We have components in medical devices, fitness trackers and smartwatches, autonomous and EVs, charging stations, solar inverters and more.

In 2023, onsemi had over $6,524 million in triple-bottom-line revenue, representing 79 percent of total revenue. Our definition of “triple bottom line” is revenue from products that fall under the intelligent power and sensing umbrella and products that contribute to the triple bottom line – People, Planet, Profit.

Protecting Our Planet and Environment

    Read More

onsemi is committed to developing strategies and programs that address global climate change and systems that protects people and minimizes our environmental impact.

Energy Consumption and Emissions

We are dedicated to reducing our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, energy consumption and overall carbon footprint in alignment with our net zero goal.

We have implemented measures to decrease energy use and emissions across its operations, reporting annual enterprise-wide GHG emissions from both manufacturing and non-manufacturing sites. As they are early in their decarbonization efforts, annual energy and emissions reports may fluctuate due to production loads and initiatives. onsemi is developing production-based metrics for better transparency and expects to see progress in energy conservation and decarbonization initiatives over time.

Water and Waste Management

We actively work to prevent any adverse effects on our water systems and strive for transparency with our stakeholders, displaying deliberate stewardship of water as a valuable and limited resource. We understand that conserving water lowers the cost of processing and safeguards the supply of water resources. In 2024, onsemi will explore development and adoption of an enterprise water stewardship initiative.
