Sustainability and Product Responsibility

Cirrus Logic requires the highest standards of integrity, ethics and sustainability among all of its global partners to ensure products manufactured under the Cirrus Logic brand represent the highest benchmarks for corporate social responsibility.

Sustainability

As a fabless semiconductor company, Cirrus Logic relies on a world-class network of supply chain partners – foundries, assembly and test facilities – to manufacture our products for customers worldwide. Cirrus Logic requires the highest standards of integrity, ethics and sustainability among all of its global partners to ensure products manufactured under the Cirrus Logic brand represent the highest benchmarks for corporate social responsibility.

Responsible Supply Chain

A key component to the Cirrus Logic commitment to quality is an underlying foundation of integrity in our supplier relationships. As an Affiliate Member of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA), Cirrus Logic commits to progressively align its own operations with provisions of our Supplier Code of Conduct and to support and encourage its own first-tier suppliers to do the same. Cirrus Logic uses the Code of Conduct for selecting and managing our network of suppliers. Various methods are then used to manage, measure and drive continuous improvement within these relationships, including quarterly reviews, scorecards, annual audits, supplier development goals, process yields, and overall quality performance.

Visit our Supplier Quality Management site for more information on how we build product quality through supplier relationships.

Supply Chain Ethics

Cirrus Logic is committed to the highest standards of product quality and business integrity in all relationships with its third party suppliers. Cirrus Logic also commits to ensuring that working conditions throughout our supply chain are safe, that workers are treated with respect and dignity, and that manufacturing processes are environmentally and socially responsible. We are committed to acting in an ethical manner, with integrity and transparency in all business dealings. We share our current Anti-Slavery Statement below, and you can also review our prior statement here.

Responsible Sourcing

Cirrus Logic collaborates closely with our supply chain partners to support responsible sourcing of materials. As affiliate members of RBA and active participants in the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) we’re proud of our efforts to be transparent in our conflict minerals reporting.

Product Responsibility

Cirrus Logic is committed to prohibiting and restricting the use of certain hazardous substances in the design and manufacturing of our semiconductors. We conform to applicable regulatory requirements including EU RoHS and EU REACH to minimize environmental impacts.

Going Green to Work

The company operates a free-of-charge network of private shuttle services in its major locations in Austin, Texas and Edinburgh, Scotland. The company provides bike lockers including bike safety equipment and electric vehicle charging stations to promote environmentally friendly alternatives to motor vehicles. Through these programs, the company estimates that nearly eight percent of its employees in its major locations no longer use their personal vehicle on a daily basis – a significant impact to reducing its carbon footprint!
