Sustainability

With renewed commitment and sustainable progress

Throughout these challenging times, our commitment to doing business sustainably remains steadfast. u-blox employees across the world, together with our shareholders, innovative customers, manufacturing, and other partners, continue to progress to a more sustainable future.  
“We serve society by providing life-enhancing products, many of which optimize resource consumption and reduce CO2 emissions, improve efficiency, extend access to healthcare, empower the disabled, and reduce social isolation for older people and those who are ill.”
In 2021, we renewed our Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Materiality Analysis to identify and prioritize the areas where u-blox can make a meaningful economic, environmental, and social impact - areas that are important to and highly influence the decision-making of u-blox and our stakeholders. Coupled with the United Nations SDGs, the results shaped our sustainability strategy.
The u-blox sustainability strategy is based on five pillars that guide our culture, behavior, and decision-making: Business Ethics, Employees, Environmental Responsibility, Supply Chain Responsibility, and Community
“Implemented by our innovative customers and partners around the world across thousands of applications and millions of devices – together, we are making a meaningful contribution to a more sustainable future.”
Making a meaningful contribution together
We believe it is critical that we do business with integrity, care for our employees, protect the environment, contribute to communities, and work closely with manufacturing and supply chain partners who respect our ESG values and operate within international regulatory frameworks with sustainability best practices.

Thus, the u-blox sustainability strategy is based on five pillars that guide our culture, behavior, and decision-making: Business Ethics, Employees, Environmental Responsibility, Supply Chain Responsibility, and Community.

Responsible products produced responsibly
We serve society by providing life-enhancing products, many of which optimize resource consumption and reduce CO2 emissions, improve efficiency, extend access to healthcare, empower the disabled, and reduce social isolation for older people and those who are ill.  

Implemented by our innovative customers and partners around the world across thousands of applications and millions of devices – together, we are making a meaningful contribution to a more sustainable future.

Building sustainable communities around the world
As a business, we have a footprint in communities all around the world. They provide our workforce. They educate and nurture future generations. They supply the components that make up our products. And they are home to our family of partners and customers.  

u-blox is contributing to communities in various ways: we donate our technology, make financial contributions, encourage and incentivize employees to offer their expertise, and work with educational establishments to support learning.

A key focus of our work with communities is to inspire the next generation around science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and ultimately encourage more people to pursue careers in this area.
