Arkema is a founding member of SEMI’s Semiconductor Climate Consortium (SCC), a collective of companies within the semiconductor ecosystem committed to climate progress.

The SCC is the first global, ecosystem-wide effort to accelerate the semiconductor ecosystem’s response to the challenge of climate change by facilitating member’s responses to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
As one of over 60 founding members, Arkema will work alongside other SCC members toward the following objectives:
  • Collaboration – align on common approaches, technology innovations and communications channels to continuously reduce GHG emissions
  • Transparency – publicly report progress and Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions annually
  • Ambition – set near- and long-term decarbonization targets with the aim of reaching Net Zero emissions by 2050

We are proud to be a founding member of the Semiconductor Climate Consortium. Arkema is committed to addressing the challenge of global warming and we look forward to collaborating with our colleagues across the full value chain. Together, we can drive change to bring about a more sustainable world.

Arkema is committed to aligning ourselves with the trajectory of limiting global warming to 1.5°C as outlined in the Paris Agreement. The company’s ambitious climate plan translates into a target, based on an SBT (Science Based Target) approach, to reduce scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions and scope 3 emissions by 46% by 2030 relative to 2019. 

Arkema’s Foranext® etch gas plays an important role in the fabrication of semiconductor devices such as microchips. Arkema is a leader in manufacturing low Global Warming Potential (GWP) gases including those for semiconductor applications. Foranext® fluorogases are used to selectively remove material through plasma etching, passivation and chamber cleaning. Foranext® products allow for the miniaturization of critical features found in memory circuits, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), and more, which give increased functionality to electronic devices.

As we continue to expand in the semiconductor market, our focus on sustainability and our involvement with the Semiconductor Climate Consortium is essential.

In the coming months, the SCC governing members will be elected and working groups will be created based on the four workstreams of the consortium: climate impact, reporting protocols, clean technology and outreach.
The SCC is headed by SEMI, a global industry association that unites the entire electronics manufacturing and design supply chain. Since 1970, SEMI has built connections with over 2,500 member companies and will expand global collective action across the value chain through the SCC.
