Sustainability and ESG

The Sustainability and ESG Working Group provides a platform to promote the sustainability efforts of our members and to support the integration of sustainable practices into our business operations. In regular events, the working group deals with a wide range of sustainability aspects. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in particular, but also large companies in the semiconductor and ICT industry, are to be supported in this way in the current and upcoming challenges of this topic area.

In addition to technical information, the main aim is an active exchange of experiences and a dialog between companies and organizations. The contents of the working group range from environmental compatibility and resource efficiency to circular economy and recycling, social responsibility and cooperation with governments as well as NGOs. We strongly believe that collaboration in this working group will play a critical role in shaping a more sustainable future for our industry.
