Community and Education

Education & Volunteering

We leverage our strong local presence and engage employees in local programs that bring a lasting benefit to communities.

We put a particular focus on promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics to ensure the innovation of tomorrow.

  335 education and volunteering initiatives from 30 sites   81% of initiatives linked to young generation and education   >100,000 trainees in ST foundation's Digital Unify program

We annually assess our contribution to our local communities using the London Benchmarking Group's methodology.

Each site is encouraged to develop and adopt a community investment strategy that has an emphasis on one or more of the following areas:

  • Educating and supporting young people: creating opportunities for young people to broaden their education, knowledge and use of electronics and IT technologies.
  • Promoting technology and innovation: shaping the future contribution that the semiconductor industry will make to society.
  • Philanthropy and social welfare: supporting charitable organizations and causes.
  • Economic development: supporting individuals and small and medium enterprises in their economic development
  • Responsible environmental management: protecting the environment and helping to protect vulnerable communities from the impacts of environmental change.
  • ST Foundation: engaging employees in ST Foundation’s Digital Unify program, aimed at bringing IT technology to less privileged communities.
