The semiconductor industry exerts a significant environmental impact due to substantial consumption of electricity, water and chemical substances in the fabrication processes. As a player in the industry, Renesas Electronics is continuing to step up efforts to minimize its environmental impact. In addition to minimizing the environmental impact of our fabrication processes, we are working to reduce the environmental impact of semiconductors throughout their entire life cycle—from development to disposal. In this way, we are aiding worldwide efforts to protect the environment.
With the help of our suppliers we are advancing our activities to reduce the environmental impact in all phases of our products lifecycle, including the components and materials that make up the semiconductors.
