2023 Edition. In Sustainability Award

In 2022, SEMI ramped up its efforts that first began in 2021 with the SEMI Sustainability Initiative by forming the Semiconductor Climate Consortium. The consortium was conceived and fashioned by the SEMI Sustainability Advisory Council (SAC) and its Climate Working Group. The Consortium invites companies from across the value chain including chipmakers, equipment and materials suppliers, and providers of OSAT and Information Communication Technology (ICT) to participate. The goal in forming the consortium is to have a concerted effort managed by SEMI, to reduce greenhouse gases across the semiconductor industry to stay within the 1.5°C temperature increase cited at multiple COP conferences. The SCC will focus on climate goals and the SSI will continue to focus on non-climate ESG efforts.
