onsemi has committed to achieving net-zero emissions by 2040 and we are implementing an aggressive strategy to reach this goal. But what does net zero mean? How does this compare to what our competitors and other companies are doing around climate change?
So, what do you do? That’s the question most of us get asked on a regular basis. What does your company do is probably the follow-up. It speaks to our innate curiosity about other jobs, companies, and careers.
On April 22, ON Semiconductor marked two years as a Signatory to the United Nations (UN) Global Compact. As a UN Global Compact Signatory, ON Semiconductor participates alongside other global companies to make a difference in the communities where it operates. The company recently published its 2021 Communication on Progress (COP) report, reaffirming ON Semiconductor’s commitment to the UN Global Compact.

With the increasing prevalence of wildfires affecting natural ecosystems, ensuring post-fire restoration is more important than ever. Long-term recovery of fire-damaged lands is difficult to achieve naturally, but with the help of dedicated and organized efforts, the trees, vegetation and wildlife habitats once lost can be revived to their natural state.
ON Semiconductor’s corporate social responsibility program works to advance sustainability within the company’s own footprint and supports environment-focused organizations in the community through grant making. One recent grantee of the ON Semiconductor Foundation making significant strides towards sustainability while encompassing social equity and economic development concerns is Arizona Sustainability Alliance.
ON Semiconductor has been a long-time supporter of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education. STEM brings together critical disciplines, creating an inclusive learning environment that encourages all students to participate, collaborate and problem solve. This holistic approach encourages students to exercise both the left and right sides of their brains simultaneously, as they would need to do in a 21st century working environment.
Another check mark on the award list for our busy corporate responsibility (CSR) team. ON Semiconductor has been declared the winner of the 2021 World Finance Sustainability Awards Program in the category of the 'Most Sustainable Company in the Semiconductor Industry – 2021'. This is the second consecutive year that we have won this award. World Finance is a print and online magazine providing comprehensive coverage and analysis of the financial industry, international business and the global economy.

With June being Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) Pride Month, there is a lot of opportunities to talk about diversity and inclusion. What perfect timing to address the meaning of allyship as part of the culture at ON Semiconductor. For me, allyship is about intent. Intent to collaborate, to promote diversity and inclusion in the workplace. We do this by driving improvements, supporting and advocating for underrepresented groups. Essentially, it is about highlighting issues and showing up for others, especially when we are not a member of these groups.
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.
