Habitat for Humanity
We are committed to operating our businesses and manufacturing operations in accordance with, and in ways that promote, internationally recognized standards of corporate responsibility. Our commitment is closely aligned with our support for the vision and mission of the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC).
In addition to complying with all legal requirements, which we view as our minimum responsibility, we are committed to ensuring that
- working conditions in all our facilities are safe,
- all employees are treated with respect and dignity,
- all operations are environmentally responsible, and
- our company is directed and managed according to the highest standards of corporate governance and business ethics.
We are also committed to being leading and respected members of our communities, and to advocating for public policies that are in our business interests and that help us grow responsibly.
We will continuously improve our performance toward these commitments. We expect the same commitments from our suppliers and other business partners.
Corporate Policy and Commitment to EICC
To achieve these commitments, we are members of EICC and we have adopted specific standards of conduct described in our global Corporate Responsibility Policy, which is designed to conform with the EICC code of conduct. Working together with our supply chain partners and in collaboration with other EICC members, we intend to progressively apply these policies to our suppliers and monitor their application to the best of our ability using EICC tools and approaches.
Providing safe and healthy workplaces and protecting the environment is a core responsibility to our employees and the communities in which we operate.
Fairchild Semiconductor is committed to the highest standards of integrity in the ways we manage our company. We believe ethical business conduct is essential to the sustained success of our businesses and organizations. We believe ethical business conduct will lead to increased trust, more collaborative working relationships and more efficient processes—all leading to better decisions and optimal results.
Fairchild Semiconductor is committed to comply with the SEC conflict mineral reporting requirements and ensure our products do not contain gold, tantalum, tin and tungsten that are sourced from locations in the conflict region which are controlled by non-government military groups, or unlawful military factions. To achieve these commitments, Fairchild Semiconductor supports the actions of the EICC and GeSI and has either obtained, or is in the process of obtaining completed EICC-GeSI Conflict Minerals reporting templates from each of our relevant suppliers and affiliates worldwide.

Our board of directors understands that it is ultimately responsible for the governance of the company, and takes this responsibility seriously. Corporate governance is the set of legal and ethical obligations, policies and best practices that determine how Fairchild Semiconductor is controlled and directed, and the mechanisms by which those with control are held accountable. Primary stakeholders are our stockholders, board of directors and senior management team. Other stakeholders include our customers, employees, suppliers, communities, regulators and creditors. We strive to continuously improve our governance structure and processes.
We believe in supporting non-profit community organizations and programs with focused financial and in-kind support.
