In a warming world, existing semiconductor manufacturing processes are unsustainable. As a significant contributor of greenhouse gases that accelerate average global temperatures, chip makers are at last attempting to transition to sustainable manufacturing processes. Those steps include reducing carbon footprints within fab operations, making much greater use of renewable energy and overhauling supply chains to achieve Net Zero goals.

Leading the charge for sustainable manufacturing is the industry group SEMI, which is spearheading the industry’s Net Zero drive via its Semiconductor Climate Consortium. The industry group recently released its baseline sustainability milestones and roadmap.

Kicking off our “Dig Deeper Podcast Series,” we sat down with Mousumi Bhat, the industry veteran leading SEMI’s sustainability initiative. Deeply committed, Bhat is endeavoring to transform the chip industry’s aspirational Net Zero goals into climate action.

Along with dissecting SEMI’s sustainability roadmap, we also discuss Bhat’s near- and long-term goals for transforming the strategic semiconductor sector from a significant carbon emitter to a low-CO2 footprint manufacturer.

Here’s our podcast discussion with SEMI’s Mousumi Bhat,
