Contributions to the Community

Each year our employees across the globe donate their time and energy to local causes they care about and Cirrus Logic often supports these efforts with financial assistance. Through our Chipping In to Make a Difference™ community outreach and engagement program, we strive to improve the well-being of the neighborhoods and communities where we live and work through corporate giving and employee volunteerism.

United Nations Sustainable Development

As part of our commitment to ESG Cirrus Logic has selected two out of seventeen UN Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs) as areas of initial focus. These goals are aimed at stimulating action in critical areas of importance for humanity and the planet. Through volunteerism, philanthropic giving and improvements to our facilities around the world, we believe we can make a positive contribution.
