Corporate Responsibility

Our vision is to reshape the semiconductor industry through collaboration and innovation. We are a foundry created with an integral commitment to Corporate Responsibility — a company dedicated globally to ethical and responsible business practices, the personal and social well being of our employees, and supply chain and environmental stewardship. Corporate Responsibility is fundamental to our culture and our value proposition to our customers, the communities in which we live and do business, and our full range of global stakeholders.

We are proud to report that the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) accepted GF as an Applicant Member on May 25, 2016. GF fully supports the vision and goals of the EICC.

Since our inception, we stand committed to the EICC Code of Conduct and its continuous pursuit of excellence in corporate responsibility and extension of responsible practices throughout the supply chain.

Working towards continuous convergence with best practices, we commit to progressively align our own operations with the provisions of the EICC Code of Conduct and to work with our major suppliers to do the same. Our own Worldwide Standards: GF Code of Conduct are aligned with the EICC Code of Conduct, and we make conformance with the EICC Code of Conduct a requirement for our suppliers.

Conflict Minerals

GF is aware of the concerns that sourcing of certain metals (Tantalum, Tin, Tungsten and Gold) used in electronics products may contribute to financing the armed conflict marked by severe human right abuses in conflict regions in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries.

To address these serious concerns, GF has established a conflict minerals policy which prohibits sourcing that contributes to financing armed conflict and human right abuses in the conflict regions in the DRC and adjoining countries.

As of January 2016, all GF sourcing of Tantalum, Tin, Tungsten and Gold is from smelters included in the Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative’s (CFSI) list of compliant smelters maintained through the Conflict-Free Smelter Program (CFSP). GF is a member of the CFSI and is proud to have achieved a fully DRC Conflict-Free supply chain.
