FOXCONN WILL TRANSFORM WISCONSIN'S ECONOMY.

Foxconn Technology Group is ready to transform Wisconsin’s economy with thousands of jobs and a whole new level of high-tech manufacturing that will mean economic growth for generations to come. There is currently no place in America that makes the kind of LCD screens Foxconn does for TVs, computers, cars, and more, and Foxconn is committed to changing that – right here in Wisconsin. With thousands of jobs at Foxconn’s massive manufacturing facility, thousands more in the construction industry to get it built, and thousands more from the suppliers and other businesses that will compete for the opportunity to be a part of it, the possibilities for ‘Wisconn Valley’ – the new home of innovation – are endless.

Foxconn Facts

This project is not only the largest single economic development project in Wisconsin history – it’s the largest “greenfield” investment on new land in U.S. history.1

Foxconn’s investment will create the largest and most advanced liquid crystal display (LCD) facility in the world, and make Wisconsin the epicenter of a new American high-tech manufacturing ecosystem.2

All this economic activity will completely transform Wisconsin’s economy by drawing suppliers and other companies to the state of Wisconsin, and creating high-tech jobs for generations to come.

Foxconn is a leader in environmentally sustainable manufacturing – it’s central to maintaining Wisconsin’s quality of life and the workforce advantage that drew Foxconn here in the first place.3

Workers at Foxconn’s Wisconsin facilities will be involved in the manufacturing of high-tech components used in TVs, computers, cars, and more – these are safe, high-skill jobs for the future.

Protecting Wisconsin’s Environment & Quality of Life

Statement by Foxconn Technology Group on Environmental Sustainability

July 31, 2017

One important factor in Foxconn’s selection of Wisconsin for this investment was the state’s high quality of life and the advantage that will play in our efforts to promote environmental sustainability throughout our global operations as well as our ability to recruit and retain the best workforce. Preserving the environment is essential to maintaining this competitive advantage for the state and we are committed, through all aspects of our project, to ensure that we will not only contribute to Wisconsin’s economic development, but that we will also play a role in protecting the environment that is so important to the success of our initiative.

Foxconn believes that protecting the environment is a responsibility for not only our operations, but also those of our supply chain partners and that is why we comply with all relevant environmental regulations and, when possible, do everything we can to exceed them in all of the locations where we do business.  Minimizing the negative impact of our operations on the environment is a fundamental responsibility for Foxconn as a sustainable business and a global industry leader.  All aspects of Foxconn’s business and operations are guided by our Social and Environmental Responsibility Code of Conduct, which sets out Foxconn’s environmental management standards, and we take a systematic approach towards integrating green and sustainable practices in our global operations.

In line with this, we will be implementing measures for our Wisconsin campus in areas, among others, that include:

  • environmentally friendly product design
  • carbon emission reduction
  • process management
  • energy efficiency and resource management
  • supply chain management

In our discussions with Governor Walker and his team, we have committed to work closely with the relevant agencies, Wisconsin academic institutions, our own global experts, and others, to ensure that we establish policies and practices that comply fully with all relevant federal, state, and local environmental regulations and that our supply chain partners are fully aware that compliance on their part is a requirement for doing business with Foxconn.  This commitment will be integrated into the final agreement we will sign with the State of Wisconsin and compliance will be regularly audited by the relevant government agencies and our internal compliance teams.

We are committed to ensuring that our contributions to Wisconsin will go far beyond the positive economic impact associated with our investments, we will also support the ongoing efforts to promote the state’s environmental well-being.
