Our Products pillar of ST Sustainability Strategy
The following priorities are managed by various departments under Our Product pillar:
Our approach to managing these priorities is described in several key documents including ST Quality Manuals which set out ST’s quality management systems and roles and responsibilities, ST Sales and Customer Relationship Management process detailing how customer satisfaction is managed within the company, and specifications on subjects such as ST Ecopack® program (as part of Sustainable Technology).
Published mid- and long-term commitments relating to Our Products can be found in the following three sources:
|ST Quality Strategy, managed by ST’s Product Quality Excellence department, references commitments related to customer satisfaction and products.|

|ST Sustainability Strategy, defines commitments related to all four of Our Products’ priorities. For more information on the detail of this strategy, please view our Sustainability Strategy and Sustainability Governance pages.|
Corporate annual Priorities focusing on specific short term goals are set by ST’s senior management and are cascaded to departments to achieve alongside longer-term product objectives.
