Sustainability Strategy

 

The 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (“SDGs”) promote sustained and inclusive economic growth, social development and environmental protection in the interest of creating a world that is just, equitable and inclusive. Dialog supports the SDGs with our existing programmes.

In the 2019 Annual report and accounts, we have mapped the outputs of our business model and our activities to the SDGs.

These goals are referenced throughout this report:

Good health and well-being Dialog is increasingly engaged in the connected health segment with our short range connectivity technology. We are working with leading pharmaceutical and medical equipment companies to develop next generation connected medical devices that improve people’s lives.

Dialog inspires the innovators of the future through our support for science, technology, engineering and maths (“STEM”) subjects, particularly amongst female students. This includes our community engagement activities; student sponsorships; collaboration with universities; our support for the Women in Engineering Society and the UK Electronics Skills Foundation; as well as employee volunteering.

Dialog takes equality and equal opportunity for all employees very seriously. In line with our corporate values we conduct business ethically, honestly, and in full compliance with applicable laws and regulations. This applies to every business decision in every area of Dialog worldwide. The principles enshrined in our Code of Business Conduct promote openness, integrity and high ethical standards in all business dealings.

Dialog is committed to fair wages, healthy and safe working conditions, respect for human and labour rights, and honest relationships. We have adopted the Responsible Business Alliance (“RBA”) standard as part of our own Supplier Code of Conduct to ensure that working conditions for both external suppliers and employees are safe and that all workers are treated with respect and dignity.

Innovation is at the core of our business and we seek to sustain a healthy level of investment in the development of new products. Our focused R&D approach and close collaboration with leading OEMs ensure we remain at the forefront of mixed-signal semiconductor technology.

Our power-efficient technology helps to extend the battery life of over a billion consumer applications. Highly integrated designs reduce the number of components and materials consumption. Although fabless, we seek to minimise our carbon footprint and offset all travel CO2 emissions.
