President and CEO
“Xilinx embraces social responsibility because it’s the right thing to do to, and an important dimension of our core values of excellence, accountability, and teamwork. Over the past year, we updated our Code of Social Responsibility and launched a new survey process to hold suppliers accountable for meeting our strict standards. These cover such areas as climate change, human rights, business conduct, compliance, and health and safety.
“Additionally, we continued to add renewable energy sources to our facilities, achieving a year-over-year global carbon footprint reduction of 17%. We also gave more than $2.3 million in grants in FY2021, benefitting over 900 non-profit organizations, and our employees donated nearly 1,500 hours of their time to volunteer work.
“Within the company, Xilinx extended CSR awareness by launching several new employee resource groups to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion across the company, and we’ve applied these same principles to help drive our business decisions around the world. I’m really proud of Xilinx and our employees for making corporate social responsibility an integral part of what we do every day.”
Xilinx gives globally and acts locally to make a difference in the communities where our employees work, live and play. We are committed to fostering a culture of giving that includes not only financial contributions, but also volunteering.
Our key focus areas include supporting global community partners by matching employee contributions, lending a hand to local organizations through outreach and volunteerism, and investing in STEM education to prepare the next-generation workforce.
We believe everything starts with our employees. We believe we can accomplish more together than we can individually. We value expertise, innovation, and dedication in the work we do. We are optimistic, hardworking, and trust our colleagues. We work collaboratively and celebrate success. We believe in our customers and their ability to change lives for the better. And, we work tirelessly to help them succeed.
We believe each person’s unique perspective, experience, background, and values make us stronger. It’s about making sure everyone receives the same treatment for the same actions. And that all employees feel welcome, have a voice, and have opportunities to contribute.
Xilinx uses the global environmental management standard ISO14001 and occupational health and safety standard ISO45001 as the foundation of our Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS) management system.
The quality of products, services, and employee morale are enhanced by a safe and healthy work environment. As a fabless semiconductor company, we believe every bit of conservation helps as we focus on decreasing natural resource use, reducing the solid and chemical waste of our operations, and minimizing our overall environmental impact on the communities around us. We also invest heavily in clean energy initiatives to help address global climate change efforts.
