It was Manocha himself, not GloFlo that won the award. And, take it all with a grain of PR salt. But in the press release announcing (http://www.semi.org/node/46156) the award, SEMI said:

Manocha's leadership has resulted in significant EHS achievements at GLOBALFOUNDRIES. Those cited by the Award committee in the selection of Manocha include:

Zero-Incident Safety Culture — GLOBALFOUNDRIES safety goal is to continually reduce all injuries and Manocha continually challenged the EHS and project management teams to achieve zero incidents. For example, Manocha ensured that there was a strong focus on safety metrics in the executive project reviews of the new Fab 8 in Malta, New York. GLOBALFOUNDRIES' Singapore Fabs all received "Silver Awards" for Health and Safety presented by the Workplace Safety and Health Council and supported by the Singapore Ministry of Manpower.

Commitment to Eco-Efficiency in Foundry Operations — In 2012, GLOBALFOUNDRIES set corporate environmental goals to reduce GHG emissions 40 percent by 2015, electricity consumption 35 percent by 2015 and water consumption 10 percent by 2015, all normalized to a manufacturing index and compared to 2010.  Fab 8 incorporates multiple energy efficiency measures, waste heat recovery, and "idle mode" for abatement systems and vacuum pumps. Fab 1 in Dresden is powered by two energy-efficient tri-generation power plants that provide electricity, heating and cooling to fab operations, GLOBALFOUNDRIES' Singapore utilizes reclaimed NEWater for incoming supply and achieved an energy reduction of 50 GWh in 2012, with a 2013 goal of a further 57 GWh reduction

WSC Commitment to Best Practices for Perfluoro-Compound (PFC) Reduction — At the 2012 annual CEO meeting of the World Semiconductor Council (WSC), Manocha led the discussion of EHS topics, urging his fellow CEOs to take action to protect the environment, conserve resources, and achieve the WSC's PFC reduction goal. GLOBALFOUNDRIES' newest U.S. fab, Fab 8, meets the WSC Best Practice commitment for PFC emission reduction, and Fab 1 has incorporated best practices for PFC reduction since 1999.

WSC Commitment to a "Conflict-Free Supply Chain" — At the 2013 WSC meeting, Manocha  championed a "Conflict-free Supply Chain" policy to address concerns related to sourcing tantalum, tungsten, tin and gold from "conflict regions" of the Democratic Republic of Congo and adjoining countries. The WSC subsequently adopted such a policy. For its part, GLOBALFOUNDRIES has already met customer requests for "Tantalum Conflict-free" products in 2012.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
