Performance and Targets

The following table captures ASML's key performance indicators. Targets have been set after input from our customers, investors and other stakeholders. The economic crisis has had a big impact on sales and income, but ASML was able to keep its R&D investments at a high level. Our business objective of reaching € 5 billion in next full upturn is unchanged. 

In the area of environmental performance our CO2 emissions and water usage have increased due to the building of new production facilities in the Netherlands and Asia as well as testing of our new Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) machines. In both areas, we plan for new initiatives to improve performance. The absolute amount of waste declined as a result of lower sales, but the percentage of recycled non-hazardous waste declined due to a less favourable mix containing less steel. We plan to introduce programs to recycle more waste categories and target to increase recycling of non-hazardous waste to 90 percent by 2015. Our hazardous waste streams are significantly smaller and our recycling efforts are restricted to only the two largest categories which make up close to 80 percent. We will take any opportunity to recycle smaller quantities of other hazardous waste when possible and make sure all other hazardous waste is removed and processed with minimal ecological damage through special high temperature incineration with energy conversion.

With regards to health and safety, the number of incidents was relatively low, and we are seeking opportunities to further reduce this number. Our social responsibilities are being met by increasing investments in charity and our encouragement of employees to engage in volunteering.

With regard to our product-related key suppliers, ASML is committed from 2010 on to hold them all to our sustainability requirements.

Table 1 illustrates that every year ASML produces more advanced machines, leading to a significant increase of computing power produced with our systems. An appropriate way to measure this performance increase is by looking at the total number of Petabytes (one Petabyte is one million Gigabytes) of computer memory produced every year thanks to the introduction of new ASML scanners. ASML's positive economic and environmental performance can be proved when our sales and emissions are measured against the increasing number of Petabytes made on ASML machines. This is how ASML adds value for its customers and we will continue with this proven strategy.

Table 1 Performance 2007-2009 and Targets

Because ASML operates in a highly cyclical business, we issue no annual sales guidance. Every quarter, ASML indicates the sales and profit margins it expects in the coming quarter. We have set a target of EUR 5 billion in annual sales during the next full economic upturn.

2 Represents how much net sales, CO2 or water are needed to produce 1 Petabyte (1 million Gigabytes) of chip memory. This shows that ASML produces ever more advanced new systems which can produce more memory bits than previous generations.

3 Total R&D investments includes investments made with government grants.

4 Although ASML aims to increase its market share, we issue no market share targets as we regard market share gains as the outcome of an effective execution of our strategy which is to offer customers the best and most cost-effective semiconductor lithography systems in all segments of the market.

5 CO2 emissions in 2009 were based on standard conversion rates.

6 See Environmental chapter for details.

7 Our aim is to recycle as much hazardous waste as possible, but if this is not possible due to small volumes, it is processed in a controlled manner through special high-temperature incineration with energy conversion.

8 ASML does not set fixed targets, but provides equal opportunities in recruiting, hiring, education, promotion and compensation without discrimination for race, color, gender, age, religion, political opinion, nationality or social origin.

For the future, we are now seeing multiple opportunities to improve our environmental performance in absolute terms. Starting this year we have therefore set ourselves absolute targets for key categories such as CO2 emissions and waste.

With this established relative performance improvement as well as our target to improve in absolute terms, we believe ASML can make a significant contribution to a more sustainable society and deserve our place amongst the sustainability leaders in our industry.
