Marvell is addressing our greenhouse gas emissions
Climate change is a serious threat to our environment, society and economy. Marvell is taking action to address climate change. The topic is a high priority within Marvell and we are also actively engaging with our investors, customers, suppliers and other stakeholders on the topic.
Some of the actions we are taking include:
GHG Emissions (tco2 equivalent)
|Renewable||1,983 (3%)||1,791 (2.4%)|
|Non-renewable||62,767 (97%)||71,658 (97.6%)|
Notes on the data: The above data is from January 1st - December 31st.
The 2019 GHG figures reported here are updated figures, based on newly discovered data, so do not align with our CDP 2020 Climate Change Submission.
Our Scopes 1 and 2 were lower in 2019 partially due to more accurate calculation, as a result of fewer estimations and greater use of actual billing information.
Scope 3 emissions have increased in 2019 due to the expanded scope 3 inventory data calculation process.
Our operational emissions arise from electricity usage, heating, cooling, and the company fleet. Marvell is working to decrease our Scopes 1 and 2 emissions through various initiatives.
We have installed a range of technologies to improve our energy efficiency, including:
We are exploring increasing the percentage of our electricity that is generated by renewable sources. Our Santa Clara Headquarters is partially powered by an on-site 1-megawatt solar system.
Given Marvell is a fabless semiconductor company, we must work with our suppliers to reduce our Scope 3 emissions. As a member of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA), Marvell is engaging with its suppliers on a wide range of ESG issues, including climate and energy. In agreeing to Marvell’s Supplier Code of Conduct, suppliers are required to comply with the RBA Code of Conduct, which states: “Energy consumption and all relevant Scopes 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions are to be tracked and documented, at the facility and/or corporate level. Participants are to look for cost effective methods to improve energy efficiency and to minimize their energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.” We continuously seek to strengthen supplier transparency and engagement on climate change and will be working to improve our Scope 3 supplier data collection.
We are also working to reduce the energy usage of our products. Lowering the power footprint of our products through better design, using the most advanced process technology, is a key competitive differentiator for us. Shifting to a new process technology, for example can reduce the power consumption by a significant amount – over 30% in some cases.
