  • Action on Climate Change

Being cognizant that climate change is a grave issue for the global community, we have drawn up the road map for net-zero along with action plans aimed at managing risks posed by climate change in a systematic manner. Based on this, we will work at full capacity to deliver tasks for improvement to minimize our environmental footprint.

Aiming to voluntarily manage its climate change-relate risks, LX Semicon identifies risks and takes precaution measures based on the cooperation among departments. Furthermore, the board’s ESG Committee deliberates on and makes decisions on climate change-related issues to ensure company-wide responses.

Roadmap for Net Zero

In line with the 2050 Net Zero driven by the government, LX Semicon has drawn up its roadmap for achieving net-zero by 2050 along with mitigation plans in consideration of its plan to expand business sites and embark on new businesses, followed by the report to the ESG Committee. Starting in 2023, we will redouble our mitigation efforts.

GHG emissions

As a fabless company, LX Semicon emits less carbon and is not required to mitigate emissions. However, we have voluntarily established a GHG inventory system and had our carbon emissions verified by an external agency. In 2022, our emissions increased due to the growth in the number of business sites and employees.
