Committed to sustainable practices in our products and supply chain.

We want our products to be distinguished not only by their capabilities but also by the care and attention we put into designing them. The best breakthroughs are sustainable.

Supply Chain Management

Achieving meaningful sustainability requires us to include our suppliers in our efforts.

As a member of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA), we have adopted the RBA Code of Conduct and expect all our suppliers to act in accordance with this Code.

  • All of our primary semiconductor manufacturing suppliers provide us with data on their greenhouse gas emissions and water use.
  • In fiscal year 2020, 575 million QCT Mobile Station Modem (MSM™) Circuits were shipped.
  • All of our direct semiconductors suppliers are required to have an ISO14001-certified environmental management system.

Product Responsibility

Our goal is to make our products as sustainable as technically and commercially feasible.

We’re focused on creating products in ways that don’t harm individuals, communities, or the environment. We’re committed to achieving this goal through sustainable design practices in our products and supply chain.

Conflict Free Minerals

We support industry-wide efforts to drive transparency in the supply chain.

Qualcomm is aware of concerns that minerals mined in conflict areas in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries may be making their way into the electronics industry supply chain and may be fueling human rights violations and environmental degradation in the region. Qualcomm strives to provide DRC conflict free products. We expect our suppliers to obtain materials from environmentally and socially responsible sources, including conflict free sources within the DRC and adjoining countries.

Environmental Responsibility

Growing a global company on a planet with finite resources demands fresh thinking.

Growing a global company on a planet with finite resources demands fresh thinking. We’re working to be a positive and creative force in protecting the environment by continually looking for ways to conserve water, minimize energy consumption, lower emissions, and reduce waste.


Workplace health and safety is one of Qualcomm’s highest priorities.

Workplace health and safety is one of Qualcomm’s highest priorities. We execute a complete environment, health and safety (EHS) management and assurance process to ensure we fully protect our employees, contractors and others while providing a safe and healthy working environment.
