Sustainable Product Design

2 / 6

The best breakthroughs are sustainable. Which is why we want our products to be distinguished not only by their intelligence, but also by the care and attention we take in designing them. 

Product Responsibility

We’re focused on creating products in ways that don’t harm individuals, communities or the environment. We are committed to sustainable practices in our products and supply chain – to make our products as sustainable as technically and commercially feasible.

Supply Chain Management

As a member of the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC), we have adopted the EICC Code of Conduct and expect all of our suppliers to act in accordance with this Code.

100% of our top semiconductors suppliers have provided us with data on their greenhouse gas emissions and water use.

861 million QCT Mobile Station Modem (MSM™) Circuits were shipped in fiscal 2014.

100% of our direct semiconductors suppliers are required to have an ISO14001-certified environmental management system.

Conflict Free Minerals

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 DRC region.

 

Qualcomm strives to provide DRC conflict free products by supporting industry-wide efforts to drive transparency in the supply chain and by expecting that our suppliers obtain materials from environmentally and socially responsible sources, including conflict free sources within the DRC and adjoining countries.
