SUPPLY CHAIN

​At ASM, we see the bigger picture. Our corporate responsibility does not stop with our direct operations; it applies to everyone across the world that works with us including all of our suppliers.

OUR POLICIES AND OUR SUPPLY CHAIN
Our policies establish the requirements and expectations for both ASM’s operations and our supply chain. The following is from our Corporate Responsibility Policy and is directly relevant for our relationship with our supply chain.

“ASM is committed to making positive contributions towards causing no harm to our people or the planet.”

WHAT WE EXPECT FROM OUR SUPPLIERS
ASM is committed to the Electronics Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) tenets to conduct our business responsibly in all areas of Environment, Health & safety, Labor, Ethics and Supply Chain. We require our supply chain to commit to the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) Code of Conduct and principles and comply with our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policies and standards.

“ASM is committed to conducting business, both in our own operations and throughout our supply chain, in a manner consistent with the Electronics Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) tenets to protect our employees, customers, communities, shareholders and the environment.”

SUPPLIER CODE OF CONDUCT
We adopt the EIC​C Code of Conduct as our Supplier Code of Conduct and require our suppliers to acknowledge, commit and implement the Code and follow the guidelines for performance and compliance in all areas of Ethics, Labor, Environment, Health & Safety and Management Systems.

CONFLICT MINERALS
“Conflict Minerals” are the tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold originating from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries that are sometimes mined and sold, under the control of armed groups, to finance conflict and violence. Some of these “conflict minerals” can make their way into the supply chains of both industrial and consumer products. At ASM, we are actively working with our supply chain and diligently putting the system and process in place to enable us to reasonably assure that products and components supplied to us containing these minerals are DRC conflict free. We require all suppliers to have in place a policy to use the tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold from “DRC conflict free” sources in our products. Our Conflict Mineral policy serves as the basis upon which we operate. We expect our entire supply chain to comply with this policy.

“ASM is committed to sourcing components and materials from companies that share our values concerning human rights, ethics and environmental and social sustainability. ASM expects its suppliers to source materials from socially responsible suppliers. “
