It’s exponential our sustainability potential
It's exponential our potential
IoT is poised to make an exponential contribution to a more sustainable world. As a member of this critical ecosystem, u‑blox has a key role in the innovation driving sustainability across it and a responsibility to produce our products and services sustainably.
The connected industries we enable are safer and more efficient. Connected cities, underpinned by our products and services, reduce energy consumption and improve quality-of-life. Connected healthcare can save lives. Connected vehicles make our roads safer and reduce emissions. Connected business means less need for travel – the importance of which has never been greater than in a world coming to terms with Covid-19.
Although sustainability has always been at the heart of what we do, we know there is much more we can accomplish.
We are taking action in 5 areas aligned with the 17 UN Global Compact SDGs
To underline our commitment to be a good corporate citizen we signed the United Nations Global Compact in 2012 and have committed to 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We continually discover new ways we can implement sustainable initiatives and take action around a five-pillar sustainability strategy which is aligned with the UN Global Compact SDG’s.
The u-blox Sustainability 5:
In 2020, we renewed the materiality analysis to identify and prioritize the topics that are most important to u‑blox and our stakeholders. We then grouped these into five areas aligned with the SDGs to form the basis of our Sustainability Strategy:
- Business Ethics, Privacy and Security
- Environmental Responsibility
- Supply Chain Responsibility
Join us on our journey of discovery as we tap into our exponential potential towards a more sustainable world!
“In this inaugural Sustainability Report, we are setting the scene. We outline the five pillars of our Sustainability Strategy, describe where we are today and share our key goals in each area. We will report back on our progress against these goals in future Sustainability Reports. ”
