Synopsys released its 2022 Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Report highlighting their Smart Future environment, social, and governance performance.

Report Highlights

Synopsys released its annual Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Report highlighting environment, social, and governance performance. Our 2022 ESG Report details the progress and performance of our Smart Future Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) strategy, which is our framework for how we create a smart future that is sustainable, just, and secure. Our framework provides a structure for how we address our own operational impact as well as how we use our ability to influence others around us to create a better world. This year, we moved from a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report to a designated ESG Report to better align with stakeholder reporting expectations.

Read on for key highlights from our 2022 ESG Report. Also, check out an infographic that summarizes the report.
