Semiconductor test equipment supplier Advantest has joined the Global Compact (UNGC), a global initiative of the United Nations, and the Global Compact Network Japan, a local network based in Japan. The UNGC is a special initiative of the UN Secretary-General which encourages companies and organisations to exert responsible and creative social leadership and to participate in creating a global framework for sustainable growth.
Companies and organisations that join the UNGC are required to make a commitment to ten universal principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
As part of Advantest’s corporate mission of "Enabling the Leading-Edge Technology", the company has framed ESG (Energy, Social and Governance) issues as a crucial element of its mid/long-term management policy announced in April 2018.
Advantest is committed to contributing to a sustainable future and helping to solve problems within global society by delivering greater safety, security, and comfort through semiconductor test.
The company’s participation in the UNGC aligns with its initiatives to promote ESG management at a higher level across the Advantest group by engaging with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations, which provide a framework for contributing to the resolution of social issues.
