Message from our CEO
At Marvell, our core value is to do the right thing. In order to help make this world a better place, we acknowledge that each one of us at Marvell has the responsibility to do the right thing when it comes to our impact on the environment and the well-being of the global community.
One area where our Company continues to do the right thing is by investing in solutions that meet the technology needs of people around the world, bridging the gap between the haves and have nots. Marvell solutions are affordable and enhance quality of life by seamlessly connecting people with each other and allowing them access to information at any place or time.
We are also investing in new and sustainable products, where we couple green technology and world-class engineering design to reduce energy consumption and abate greenhouse emissions in our solutions. We believe our sustainable products in the handsof ordinary people can help to curtail power consumption and minimize the taxing impact technology can have on the environment.
Another way Marvell carries out the principle to do the right thing is by encouraging and promoting leaders within the company to actively share knowledge with and coach their fellow employees. This enables greater knowledge acquisition and skills development by Marvell’s employees, both to the benefit of the Company and of individual employees in their personal career development.
Another area of focus where Marvell endeavors to do the right thing is by creating a responsible supply chain and by recognizing the importance of our suppliers to meet the same high standards for labor rights, health and safety, the environment and ethics we uphold for our own workforce and facilities. We joined the Electronics Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) with an aim to promote social and environmental responsibility standards in partnership with other major players in the electronics industry. We are also members of the Conflict-free Sourcing Initiative, working actively with supply chain partners to ensure minerals used in our products originate from conflict-free sources.
We also strive to do the right thing by engaging with surrounding communities through initiatives like the Second Harvest Food Bank drive in Santa Clara, Calif. and disaster relief support in Sichuan, China. We are also active with advocacy groups, including TechAmerica and Global Semiconductor Alliance, to ensure the state, federal and international standards of tomorrow have the well being of the environment in mind. However, we remain challenged to do more. In the short term, we are reevaluating ways we can enhance our energy efficiency efforts in our world-wide facilities, such as continuing efforts to retrofit our facilities with energy saving initiatives, including implementing automated lighting systems and channeling natural energy through the deployment of solar panels.
We are excited at the opportunity to share our efforts toward documenting our Corporate Social Responsibility. At the same time, communicating our efforts has helped us identify areas on which we can focus for improvement and we look forward to sharing our progress on such initiatives and other impactful social responsibility initiatives.
