To operate an ethic business and remain as a sustainable and responsible partner for our stakeholders, we need to look at risks both inside and outside our organization.
Integrity guides our conduct towards our shareholders, business partners, colleagues, and the general public. Therefore, Infineon operates under some standards and ethical requirements which, based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, represent our commitment to respect and dignity of each other, safe working conditions and environmental responsibility.

The ten principles of the Global Compact in the areas of human rights, labor, the environment, and anti-corruption are derived from the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights,” the “ International Labor Organization’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work,” the “ Rio Declaration on Environment and Development,” and the “United Nations Convention Against Corruption”.
Infineon joined the UN Global Compact in 2004, and therefore, aligned its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy to follow and comply with the ten principles of the UN Global Compact. Please see Infineon’s UN Communication on Progress
Principles of Purchasing
“California Transparency in Supply Chains Act” and the “United Kingdom Modern Slavery Act”
As reflected in our commitment to the United Nations Global Compact we respect and observe the internationally proclaimed human rights, including the rights to personal dignity, privacy and cultural practices. As set forth in our Business Conduct Guidelines as well as in our Principles of Purchasing, we shall not condone human rights abuses, neither in the form of direct nor beneficial nor silent complicity and we are against any form of forced labour. We strictly oppose any form of human trafficking and slavery.
The “California Transparency in Supply Chains Act” of 2010 and the “United Kingdom Modern Slavery Act” of 2015 require certain businesses to provide disclosure concerning their efforts, if any, to address the issues of slavery and human trafficking in their supply chains. The disclosures are intended to provide consumers the ability to make better choices about the products and services they buy and the companies they support.
