SASB Sustainability Disclosure Topics and Accounting Metrics

We strive to align our disclosures with the framework provided by the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) for the Technology and Communications Sector specific to the semiconductor industry (“SASB Standards”).

Please see below for a mapping of how our latest disclosures align with the SASB Standards. The SASB Standards are maintained by the Value Reporting Foundation. As we continue to collate information required under the SASB Standards for the various accounting metrics, we will publish additional disclosures as part of our efforts to provide transparency and accountability to our stakeholders.
