Implementation Strategy for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) at ON Semiconductor Keenan Evans, Theresa McCarley and Pam Amorin ON Semiconductor 5005 E. McDowell Rd. Phoenix, AZ 85008 The term Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) encompasses corporate governance, environmental due diligence and sustainability, worker rights, and health and safety considerations. In response to the social needs and desires driven by company stakeholders (shareholders, customers, employees and the local communities where companies do business), there has been a surge of CSR activity in all aspects of business (manufacturing, services, etc.). This activity requires companies to formally demonstrate they are good global corporate citizens wherever they do business. In order to align with the global electronics community and to formalize and organize our various CSR efforts, On Semiconductor became an applicant member of the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) in mid-2009 and we became a full member of the EICC in December of 2010. We had previously endorsed the EICC code of conduct and we had a number of programs already in place to ensure compliance to the various tenets of the code, including a long established code of business conduct and formal certification to the ISO14001 environmental management system standard. This presentation/discussion will explore our ‘current state’ of CSR globally and focus on our implementation and management strategy internally within our own facilities and externally with our supply chain. The presentation/discussion will incorporate an overview on the impact of recent legislation regarding conflict metals and human rights.
