Skyworks releases positive annual Sustainability Report; extends programs to supply chain

Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA (which manufactures analog and mixed-signal semiconductors) has released its 2013 Sustainability Report, a voluntary non-financial public document that addresses the firm’s commitment to sustainable business practices. The report highlights annual improvements and provides an overview of Skyworks’ initiatives in multiple areas, from its environmental efforts and labor practices, to its health & safety programs, ethics policies and stewardship activities.

In 2013, Skyworks reduced its year-over-year carbon dioxide emissions rate by 32% and improved its water efficiency by 8%, recording its lowest water usage rate on record since it began measuring results. Continuing the phase-out of materials of concern in finished goods, Skyworks now has a product portfolio that is nearly 100% ‘green’.

“Central to Skyworks’ efforts in meeting the growing demand for wireless connectivity solutions is our belief in sustainability,” says Bruce J. Freyman, senior VP of worldwide operations. “In 2013, we continued to make improvements across all key categories and extended our reach into our supply chain by working to implement programs that go beyond mere compliance with industry standards,” he adds. “The net result of these sustainability efforts is that our products are manufactured with considerably less impact on the environment.”
