We pursue social and global environment initiatives to pass on our irreplaceable environment to the next generation through activities to develop environment-friendly and safety-conscious products and technologies, giving sufficient consideration to the impact of our business activities.
- Introduction of environmental management system
- Reduction of environmental impact in business operation (Eco products)
- Climate change (Reduction of CO2 emissions as a fabless company)
Environmental Management System
Environmental protection is a prerequisite for future generations. MegaChips is committed to achieving symbiosis between our business and the environment, contributing to a greener and cleaner Earth. To achieve this, we have developed an environmental management system complying with ISO14001.
Major Environmental Preservation Activities
- Provide eco-friendly and recycling-oriented products of a small size and low-power consumption
- Work on reducing environmentally hazardous chemical substances and conducting green procurement based on our unique “Green Procurement Guidelines”
- Put effort into promoting eco-office activities for saving energy and natural resources
- Observe conflict minerals reporting regulations and comply with laws and other requirements

MegaChips has grown through the philosophy of “innovation” to develop the company’s business, “trust” to maintain its coexistence with customers, and “creativity” to continue to contribute to society. Based on this management philosophy, MegaChips will develop and grow together with its customers and contribute to the conservation of the global environment by providing solutions that save energy and resources. We will use our unique technological capabilities to improve the functions, performance, and quality of LSI, including low power consumption, miniaturization, and high-speed processing.
Environmental Load Reduction with the Development of Eco Products
Examples of Products: ASIC Design for Lower Power Consumption
The pursuit of lower power consumption in Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) development is essential now that environmental considerations are becoming increasingly important. Taking advantage of the strength of being a fabless company, MegaChips has achieved a significant reduction in ASIC’s power consumption by aggressively adopting low-power manufacturing processes provided by wafer fabrication vendors around the world and specialized libraries for low-power consumption provided by IP vendors. In the most recent concrete example, the application of technologies that dynamically control the CMOS transistors’ operating voltage achieved a more than 50% reduction in power consumption compared to when these methods were not incorporated.
These ASICs will be used in various application areas, including industrial equipment, communications equipment, and IoT devices, and will contribute to supporting people's lives while being environmentally friendly.
Response to the Climate Change Issue
Response to the Climate Change
Climate change is an important issue that must be addressed by society as a whole, not only because it affects all aspects of human life, but also because it poses a major threat to security, the geopolitical environment, and natural resources. Climate change is attributable to both natural and man-made causes, whose diverse effects range from natural disasters and epidemics to infrastructure degradation and water resource shortages, resulting in the need for companies to maintain heightened environmentally friendly business operations.
MegaChips recognizes the climate change issue as one of its most important management challenges and will continuously strive to achieve the coexistence of the environment and business management in order to contribute to the building of a sustainable society.
The TCFD Initiative
TCFD refers to the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures created by the Financial Stability Board (FSB), which recommends disclosing the following items regarding climate-related risks and opportunities. Based on the TCFD’s recommendations, we have begun disclosing our governance, strategies, and risk management associated with climate-related risks and opportunities. We will view future climate change-related phenomena as risks to be addressed, while, at the same time, making the most of our management strategies to identify new opportunities.
