ON Semiconductor takes pride in how we have integrated corporate social responsibility (CSR) into our culture and business operations around the world. To showcase and educate employees on local and global efforts, we held our first-ever CSR day during our annual Responsibility Week in early November, with CSR activities taking place around the world.
The second-annual LEAP Awards honors the best components and services across the mechanical and electrical engineering design space. The program, which is supported by three major design engineering publications (Design World, Fluid Power World, EE World), selects winners across 13 categories including “Switches and Sensors” and “Embedded Computing”.
In 2018, ON Semiconductor donated over $2 million globally to support health, human services, education, disaster relief and environmental causes. Of that total, we have invested close to $1 million in Arizona through workplace giving (such as matching donations and sponsorships).
To increase our impact on communities, we launched a formal employee volunteer program in 2017 so that all of our employees in North America (U.S. and Canada) have one day per year to volunteer at an organization of their liking during company time.

Today is America Recycles Day, a national program organized by Keep America Beautiful and the only nationally recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States, so we are honored to share more about our company’s environmental citizenship and taking action to improve recycling at our sites globally.
A key component our company’s corporate social responsibility program is our community initiatives. Through philanthropy and volunteerism, we aim to create a relationship of mutual trust and respect between the company and the local communities in which we operate. Through our community involvement, we also want our employees to be proud of what they do and where they work.
Launched in 2016, ON Semiconductor’s Global Corporate Giving (GCG) Program strategically leverages our resources, talent and efforts to support nonprofits and educational institutions. Each year, we fund projects and programs in order to create social value and maximize our impact on communities through workplace giving and community grants. In 2018, we invested over $2 million USD to support our communities worldwide.

Our world is changing, the climate is changing, the global population is increasing, and the need for reliable energy continues to grow. Traditional energy sources, such as fossil fuels, will not last forever. It is time to look for alternative energy sources and conserve the energy we use. ON Semiconductor is doing just that.
