UPM Asks: What is needed to help manufacturers reach their sustainability targets?

Let us know your thoughts on technologies or approaches needed.

The top 10 microelectronics manufacturers have announced almost 30 water-related sustainability goals with target end-date between 2020 and 2030. 10 of these targets had an end-date between 2020 and 2021. 

As shown in the chart above, only half of these sustainability targets were achieved.

With at least 20 more sustainability goals to meet by 2030, how will leading manufacturers develop the methods to meet these targets?

Are the industry’s ambitious sustainability goals achievable, and if not, what is holding back progress? 

Let us know via a comment below, or feel free to leave me a message. 

Find more about these sustainability goals in the December Community Event recording The Microelectronics Industry in 2023: A drive towards sustainability, reuse and growth in water-related spending.
