SUSTAINABILITY

Make sustainability the cornerstone of Soitec's strategy

As a global leader operating at the very top of the microelectronics value chain, we permanently create our industry standards by making possible the adoption of innovative technologies.

This very special place comes with a mission and a responsibility that extends far beyond simply developing and producing substrates: reconcile performance and energy-efficiency in electronic products and consequently make our products the cornerstone of a more sustainable and more responsible future.

Our corporate purpose has been enshrined in our status since 2021 and embodies this commitment: "We are the innovative soil from which smart and energy efficient electronics grow into amazing and sustainable life experiences."

In 2021, we launched our new Corporate Responsibility policy, with a roadmap running through 2026. This policy is based on 3 pilars and 12 commitments that we outlined with all our stakeholders.

We contribute to 12 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals defined by the United Nations in 2015.

Drive the transition toward a sustainable economy through our innovation and operations

In a context of global warming, the depletion of natural resources and the loss of biodiversity, our planet is currently facing threats of unprecedented intensity.

Businesses have a significant part to play in overcoming these threats. This is what drives us on a daily basis and pushes us to surpass ourselves and innovate in order to better reconcile electronic performance and energy efficiency in electronic devices and to build a more environmentally friendly future.

Leverage our inclusive and inspiring company culture

We firmly believe that sharing a common culture is crucial to the success of a company and to the well-being of its employees.

Our corporate culture is the culmination of 30 years of history. It has been forged by a common vision and is a pillar that inspires us, unites us and is based on our fundamental core values: ensuring the well-being of all our employees and enriching our community every day with greater diversity in a model based on cohesion, inclusion and profit-sharing.

Act to become a role model for a better society

Soitec is a global player at the very top of the microelectronics value chain. As such, we strive every day to make the industry a responsible and sustainable one with high ethical standards, by co-building a more sustainable future with each of our stakeholders.
