During the Annual General Meeting, Infineon informed its shareholders about the start of construction of its new plant for analog/mixed-signal technologies and power semiconductors. After extensive analysis, the Infineon Management Board and supervisory bodies gave the green light for the Dresden site.

Infineon expands exhaust-air purification systems

At the Annual General Meeting, Infineon also announced the expansion of the exhaust-air purification system at the Kulim site. Avoiding CO 2 emissions is a clear priority for Infineon in implementing its climate strategy. Modern exhaust-air purification systems offer the greatest leverage in this regard. The upgrade in Kulim is expected to result in an approximately eight percent reduction of global direct site-related emissions (Scope 1) by the end of the 2023 fiscal year compared to the previous year. A planned new exhaust-air purification system in Austin, USA, will lead to further savings.
