Environment

In order to fulfill our responsibility, we are committed to environmental management practices that conserve resources and to developing innovative, energy-efficient products.

Environmental Management

We have set up a corporate EHS policy in order to integrate environmental issues into the overall management on a corporate-wide level. 

EHS Policy ams OSRAM

The structure of the guideline is in line with the following internationally recognized management system standards:
ISO 14001 – Environmental Management System
ISO 50001 – Energy Management System (for locations  within EU)


Segment Semiconductor:

> ISO 14001


Segment Lamps and Systems:

ISO 14001 – Environmental Management System

> ISO 50001 – Energy Management System (for locations within the European Union)
 

We created the necessary organization for these industry standards and a comprehensive system for environmental management.

Climate

As an industrial company, we use energy and consume natural resources. In the process, we also emit greenhouse gases and produce waste. Climate protection and the development of a circular economy are therefore important issues for us, too. To this end, we are committed to an energy-efficient and resource-conserving way of doing business and are developing innovative, environmentally friendly products. 

We are pressing ahead with the development of a comprehensive sustainability strategy and setting ourselves specific targets: ams OSRAM is committed to the 1.5 degree-target of the Paris Climate Agreement and wants to make its own operations carbon-neutral by 2030.

Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs)

In order to assess the environmental performance of our products, life cycle analyses of selected OSRAM product families were conducted, representing different technologies. The method for these analyses was an assessment following principally the international standards ISO 14040 and 14044.
