Prioritizing Supply Chain Responsibility, Resiliency, and Security
Our global manufacturing footprint provides customers an unrivaled geostrategic supply, and we are committed to responsible sourcing practices and partnering with suppliers who share our commitment to quality, social responsibility, ethical practices, and environmental sustainability.
Global Footprint and Geostrategic Supply
As the world’s only leading semiconductor manufacturer with a global footprint, GlobalFoundries and its customers benefit from a resiliency and geostrategic supply that is unique in our industry. With manufacturing facilities in the United States, Germany, and Singapore, our global footprint ensures capacity is strategically distributed for supply chain security, stability and reliability.
GF SHIELD is GF’s comprehensive, companywide platform to safeguard and protect our customers’ intellectual property and products. The GF SHIELD platform leverages and embraces GF’s experience as a Trusted Foundry and supplier of advanced semiconductors to the U.S. government and the aerospace and defense industry, as well as GF’s experience as a certified international Common Criteria standard (ISO 15408, CC Version 3.1) manufacturer, and extends those stringent security capabilities to all GF locations and customers. GlobalFoundries is a “Trusted Foundry” for U.S. Government and holds similar designations in Singapore and Germany
As a member of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA), GlobalFoundries is committed to responsible sourcing practices. To drive resiliency and positive impact in our supply chain and throughout the industry, we hold our suppliers accountable for quality, reliability, environmental responsibility, human rights, fair labor practices, safety, and emergency preparedness.
Responsible Minerals Sourcing
High-purity materials derived from minerals are widely used throughout the electronics and semiconductor industries, including by GlobalFoundries and our suppliers. We are committed to sourcing these materials in the most responsible way. As a member of the Responsible Minerals Initiative, we partner with suppliers and take action to ensure “3TG” minerals (gold, tungsten, tantalum and tin) in our supply chain are conflict-free.
