    Abstract The purpose of this technology brief is to recommend policy shifts that align with tangible developments in semiconductor chips. Attainment of sustainability must be centred on policy changes or fostering initiatives. Chips, or small semiconductors with an embedded electronic circuit that transmits data signals, are essential for many technologies, including smartphones, electric vehicles, and medical devices. They are also crucial for developing new technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI) or the Internet of Things (IoT), with applications for industries such as renewable energy, healthcare, precision agriculture, and aerospace for instance. Chips and their applications are crucial for sustainable development. Sustainable development approaches are long-term plans that seek to meet the requirements of the present without compromising resources and possibilities for future generations.
