Company Ranking8 out of
NXP Semiconductors NV (NXP Semiconductors), an American-Dutch semiconductor manufacturer, ranks eighth out of 49 companies, disclosing more information on its forced labor policies and practices than its peers across all themes. Since 2018, the company has improved by disclosing a list of its first-tier suppliers, evidence that fees were repaid to supply chain workers, and data on its grievance mechanism. Compared to 2018, the company’s score decreased by five points, due to a strengthened methodology which makes it harder to achieve the same score. Notably, the company is one of two companies with the highest score on the theme Traceability & Risk Assessment and is the highest-scoring European company in the benchmark. KnowTheChain identified one allegation of forced labor in the company’s supply chains. The company states that it is working with suppliers, industry associations, and other companies to remedy the situation. However, the company does not disclose engagement with affected stakeholders nor remedy outcomes for workers.
