We are making positive contributions in what we do. We have a certified global environmental management system to drive continuous improvement in environmental performance across all of our operations. We are committed to the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) Code of Conduct and will strive to meet its goals as best we can on a global basis. We are engaging our supply chain to do the same.

At ASM we know that meeting the needs of today does not mean compromising the future. From all ASM employees and myself, we encourage you to join us in our commitment to make positive contributions to people, environment and society, by “Driving Innovation” and “Delivering Excellence” in sustainability.
