Corporate Social Responsibility Commitment

At Synopsys, integrity is the basis for everything we do. Because we do what we say and say what we do, we have established trust and earned the respect of our employees, customers, partners, shareholders, and communities.

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) at Synopsys delivers social, economic, and environmental benefits for our stakeholders by translating our company values into action.

We recognize that CSR and strong governance go hand in hand. Synopsys’ Board of Directors has established a framework to maintain high standards of corporate governance, which complies with regulatory standards and ensures the long-term interests of Synopsys' stakeholders are served.

Our cross-functional CSR Leadership Committee, comprised of senior-level leaders from across our business, provides oversight of our CSR Roadmap implementation to drive the integration of social, economic, and environmental goals to our business.

As a member of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA), Synopsys fully supports the vision and mission of the RBA. 

  • RBA Vision: A global electronics industry that creates sustainable value for workers, the environment, and business.
  • RBA Mission: Members, suppliers and stakeholders collaborate to improve working and environmental conditions through leading standards and practices.

We are committed to the alignment of our operations with the provisions of the RBA Code of Conduct and to the adoption of the RBA approach and tools, where possible. Moreover, we encourage our suppliers to do the same.
