Take a look at how the goal of a sustainable future guides our research and our internal organization.
Can technology improve our lives? We believe it can. The true question is: how do we make sure that it does? And how do we know that we take the right actions? That benefit everyone.
One part of the answer is: by working together. Our belief in collaboration is even greater than our faith in technology. To ensure that our efforts fit into a worldwide framework that promotes sustainability, we support the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
In 2019, we selected the Sustainable Development Goals on which we primarily – though not exlusively – focus our research, because we believe nano- and digital technology can greatly speed up their progress.
In 2022, imec was awarded with the UNITAR SDG Pioneer certificate. An acknowledgment of the fact that, for three years in a row, we managed to implement an action plan addressing all SDGs.
