Sivers Semiconductors makes the connected world more sustainable, safer and better


Sivers Semiconductors drives some of the world’s most significant technological advances that generate improved data speeds, which reduces the CO2 footprint of each new generation of products the company offers. By Sivers providing the best solutions in sensors, data and wireless networks the company makes the connected world more sustainable, safer and better. This includes targeted initiatives aimed at reducing the Company’s own and our customers’ environmental impact, and offering sustainable products and solutions that can reduce energy consumption by up to 50–90 percent.

Increased capacity in both data networks and computers is critical to the continuously accelerating digitalization process. This places increasingly stringent demands on operators such as Sivers Semiconductors, who supply key products for these systems.

Sustainability at Sivers
Sivers Semiconductors’ sustainability work is founded on three cornerstones:

1. Deliveries with sustainability benefits
Sivers Semiconductors’ customers’ operations and services often have a significant impact on people and the environment. We want to challenge ourselves and our customers to maximize the sustainability benefits of the solutions we create together. Alongside our partners, we foresee significant potential to set aggressive sustainability targets in the near future. Through technological advances we will be able to take significant steps towards creating a sustainable society.

2. Employees with sustainability competencies.
In order to create sustainability benefits, we have a responsibility to train our employees. The right expertise and conditions need to be in place to provide our customers with advice. Many employees appreciate our focus on sustainability and the opportunity to influence our customers’ attitude to sustainability.

3. R
esponsible utilization of resources
Utilizing all kinds of resources responsibly and efficiently is a cornerstone of our work for more sustainable operations and delivery. 

Controls and organization for sustainability
Sivers Semiconductors’ sustainability work proceeds from the following control documents:

Sustainability policy
Code of Conduct
Code of Conduct for suppliers
HR policy

Sivers Semiconductors is primarily a value-driven company where all employees shall practice our values of honesty, respect, trust and drive in their day-to-day work. In addition, Sivers Semi- conductors’ Code of Conduct states our positions and demands relating to legislation, labor law and human rights, the environment and anti-corruption. Sivers Semiconductors places equivalent demands on our suppliers. These are expressed in the Code of Conduct for suppliers. The HR policy is specifically focused on the Company’s HR work and staff development. Sustainability work is part of Sivers Semiconductors’ business planning, management system and processes. Our quality management is certified according to ISO 9001:2015, and ISO 14001 forms the basis for our environmental work.
The sustainability work is carried out through ordinary groups and management teams. Sivers Semiconductors’ risk analysis includes sustainability issues. The risk analysis is updated and used on an ongoing basis, and risks are followed up at Board and Group management meetings.

Offering for a sustainable and
connected world

Sivers Semiconductors develops and produces chips and modules for communications systems and sensors. In order to be competitive our products need to be fast and energy efficient. We streamline technical systems by utilizing the very best basic technology and design. Technology that is accessible, consumes less and achieves more, makes the world more accessible, safer and greener – and contributes to our customers’ and our own success.

Environmental adaptations of our offering and operations
Efficient energy use is one of the most difficult challenges the world currently faces. Here, semiconductors play a critical role. There is enormous potential for energy savings by rationalizing 5G networks – a concrete example is energy- efficient signal amplifiers. Sivers Semiconductors 5G chip is approximately five times more efficient than the previous generation chips and uses only around one-third of the power compared to competing products. This makes Sivers’ chip one of the world’s most efficient 5G chips.
Sivers Semiconductors evaluates all operations based on the environmental impact. We develop our products’ environmental performance and continuously strive to reduce our negative environmental impact, for example by applying the precautionary principle.

Sivers Semiconductors designs, develops and manufactures products and chooses its suppliers with the aim of reducing our environmental impact by:
• Using technology with optimal energy efficiency
• Reducing energy consumption when our products are used
• Reducing resources and harmful substances in products and production
• Minimizing waste, emissions and radiation
• Reusing materials
• Developing or procuring components in accordance with Sivers Semiconductors’ sustainability policy. The policy ensures compliance with RoHS and REACH, and that components are free from conflict minerals. The Group applies the OECD’s guidelines (Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas) in order to avoid conflict minerals.
