ON Semiconductor Continues Commitment to Responsible Global Supply Chains
ON Semiconductor is a member of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA), the world’s largest industry coalition dedicated to corporate social responsibility in global supply chains. ON Semiconductor joined as an applicant member in 2009 and became a full member of the RBA in 2010.
One of the most fundamental RBA programs is the Validated Assessment Program (VAP), which is the leading standard for onsite compliance verification and effective, shareable audits.
During the 2020 VAP initial audit, ON Semiconductor received three platinum recognitions for its sites in Nampa, ID, USA; Aizu, Japan and Niigata, Japan and three silver recognitions for its sites in Leshan, China; Shenzhen, China; and Binh Duong, Vietnam. It also received two platinum recognitions for its sites in Cebu, Philippines and Tarlac, Philippines during the closure audit.
The RBA offers three levels of recognition:
Platinum: Factories with a minimum VAP score of 200 and all priority, major and minor findings closed.
Gold: Factories with minimum VAP score of 180 and all priority and major findings closed.
Silver: Factories with minimum VAP score of 160 and all priority findings closed.
Audits carried out at RBA member facilities and their suppliers' facilities are completed by independent third-party auditors especially trained in social and environmental auditing and the VAP protocol.
ON Semiconductor has also been participating in the RBA’s Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) since 2009. The mission and goal of the RMI is to support responsible mineral sourcing and convene stakeholders to continually shape dialogue and practices. Working together, RMI participants are evolving business practices to support responsible mineral production and sourcing globally, including but not limited to conflict-affected and high-risk areas. They are providing companies with tools and resources that improve regulatory compliance, align with international standards, and support industry and stakeholder expectations.
ON Semiconductor is proud of the work it does to advance human rights and ensure responsible sourcing of materials within its global supply chain. Please visit the ON Semiconductor Social Responsibility webpage to learn more about our commitment to the RBA and RMI.
