Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:SWKS), an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, has released its 2013 Sustainability Report, a voluntary non-financial public document that addresses the company’s commitment to sustainable business practices. The report highlights annual improvements and provides an overview of the company’s initiatives in multiple areas, from its environmental efforts and labor practices, to its health and safety programs, ethics policies and stewardship activities.
In 2013, Skyworks reduced its year-over-year carbon dioxide emissions rate by 32 percent and improved its water efficiency by 8 percent, recording its lowest water usage rate on record since it began measuring results. Continuing the phase out of materials of concern in finished goods, Skyworks now has a product portfolio which is nearly 100% Green™.
“Central to Skyworks’ efforts in meeting the growing demand for wireless connectivity solutions is our belief in sustainability,” said Bruce J. Freyman, senior vice president of worldwide operations at Skyworks. “In 2013, we continued to make improvements across all key categories and extended our reach into our supply chain by working to implement programs that go beyond mere compliance with industry standards. We are proud that the net result of these sustainability efforts is that our products are manufactured with considerably less impact on the environment.”
