SEMI Announces Founding Members of Semiconductor Climate Consortium


The consortium aims to accelerate the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the semiconductor value chain.

Consortium members and SEMI will participate in the United Nations Climate Change Conference 2022 (COP27).

MILPITAS, Calif., November 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — SEMI, the industry association serving the global electronics manufacturing and design supply chain, and the new Semiconductor Climate Consortium (SCC), a group of value chain companies of semiconductors to accelerate the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by the ecosystem, announced today more than 60 founding members of the Consortium.

Representatives of CSC and SEMI member companies will hold information sessions November 8-10 during COP27 in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt. Requests to attend a session and for more information about CSC can be sent to [email protected].

The SCC is the first global collaboration of companies in the semiconductor ecosystem focused on reducing greenhouse gas emissions throughout the value chain. Consortium members are committed to working towards the following pillars and objectives:

  • Collaboration – Align on common approaches, technological innovations and communication channels to continuously reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Transparency – Report publicly on progress and Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions annually.
  • Ambition – Set short- and long-term decarbonization goals with the goal of reaching net zero emissions by 2050.

The founding members have affirmed their support for the Paris Agreement and related agreements guiding the 1.5⁰C trajectory and are aligned with the need to drive climate progress within the semiconductor value chain. SCC was conceptualized by companies coming together under the SEMI Sustainability Initiative, which will continue to focus on non-climate environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.

“I commend all of the founding members of the Semiconductor Climate Consortium for their leadership in this crucial initiative and for their continued support of global sustainability efforts,” said Ajit Manocha, President and CEO of SEMI. “While individual companies have taken significant steps to decarbonize, industry must come together to develop green solutions and move towards net zero. I encourage all companies in the value chain to join CSC and to contribute to this crucial mission.”

“The commitment and support of founding members of the Semiconductor Climate Consortium is truly inspiring,” said Dr. Mousumi Bhat, Vice President of Global Sustainability Programs at SEMI. “CCS members recognize the climate impact of industry and the need for a greater focus on collaboration to drive sustainable growth across the value chain. We look forward to setting meaningful sustainability goals and helping to ensure a healthy environment for future generations.

The next phase in CSC’s development is the election of its Board of Directors. Representing a broad cross-section of the value chain, the board will establish consortium priorities that will be executed by member-led working groups.
