Our role in the world

At ASM, we take pride in ​being responsible corporate citizens. Good corporate citizenship is good business. It means respect for our employees, our partners, our customers, and our neighbors.

It means minimizing our environmental footprint and making safety our number one priority. It means respect for the law, but more than that it means integrity whenever we engage with stakeholders. This demands a strict adherence to our code of ethics, which provides clear guidance to all employees.

Our social and environmental responsibility isn’t just an ASM concern, it embraces the wider world.

Taking it personally

“I believe that the problems we’ve made in the world we can solve with technology. Take, for example, the environmental issues that face us right now. The technology we develop can help everyone save energy by making devices more energy-efficient. Technology has a responsibility not only to give people what they want, but to encourage them to live more environmentally-friendly lifestyles. Not every innovation will work. But if it doesn’t work then it provides us with a lesson that tells us how we can improve.”
