STMicroelectronics (NYSE:STM), a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, announced the publication of the Company’s 2017 Sustainability Report (2016 Performance). This twentieth edition contains details and highlights of ST’s sustainability strategy, its 2016 performance and achievements of the past 20 years.

“We are proud of what we have achieved in an ever-changing business environment.” said Carlo Bozotti, President and CEO of STMicroelectronics. “Our business is delivering sustainable growth, our people are committed to ST and to their local communities, the impact of our operations on the environment is well-managed, and we provide solutions that make the world safer, more efficient, productive and simpler. Yet, for ST, sustainability is about continuous improvement by always striving for excellence. We recognize there is still more to do and we are committed to do more, for all our stakeholders.”

Among the key sustainability highlights:

  • Reduced risks in the Labor and Human Rights domain through self-assessment and audits according to the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) standard, while also reinforcing controls across our supply chain
  • Maintained focus on safety performance, while fully involving subcontractors in ST’s ‘Safety First program’
  • Completed the program announced two years earlier, with all major ST sites achieving certification to the latest and most stringent ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management standard
  • Strengthened Lean practices beyond manufacturing, into all organizations, including Research and Development
  • Reused, recovered, or sent for recycling, 91.3% of the waste generated through operations, in line with best-in-class industry standards
  • Maintained B, a score above the industry average, in the CDP’s water-disclosure program
  • Increased the proportion of Responsible Products from 27% of the products registered in 2015 to 34% at the end of 2016. We define responsible products as innovative products that provide clear environmental and social benefits.

In addition, ST encouraged good global citizenship and recorded 307 community-related initiatives, including cash donations and contributed more than 125,000 hours of donated company time to these efforts.

The report has been prepared according to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 guidelines at the Core level and verified by DNV GL, a third-party auditor, who reviewed and validated ST’s data reporting process, content and adherence to GRI-G4.

ST was one of the first companies to commit to the United Nations Global Compact in 2000 and the report represents the Company’s ‘Communication on Progress’ as well as the efforts to support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s).
