Community involvement

ASML is involved in the communities where we operate through community activities, education projects, volunteering and sponsoring.

In ASML there are two avenues through which sponsoring takes place: the ASML Foundation and Corporate Sponsoring. The ASML Foundation supports education projects across the world to improve economic and social self-reliance for targeted groups, primarily children. Corporate Sponsoring concentrates mainly on sponsoring activities in the communities where we are located.

ASML has always been firmly rooted in local communities through sponsoring and volunteering, but in 2008 we decided to expand our community relations program, as part of our corporate social responsibility. Another reason to substantially increase our community involvement was to stem the tide of declining interest in technical studies.

To develop and execute the community programs we have a continuous dialogue with our stakeholders, including employees, public authorities, schools and cultural institutions. We identify causes that benefit the community, ASML and our employees. Our criteria for community involvement are:

  • Improving technical education and awareness among schoolchildren and students;

  • Helping provide an inspiring and attractive environment for our employees and families to live and work;

  • Strengthening social structures.

Our global community involvement strategy falls under the remit of our Chief Financial Officer, and is coordinated by our Communications department. A community involvement office provides a central framework for setting targets, selecting projects and defining priorities. Within this framework, individual sites choose their own community involvement activities, which are overseen by local coordinators.

Through our corporate sponsorship program, a total amount of 260,895 euros was donated by ASML to various institutions in the Eindhoven region (2010: 123,735 euros). ASML donates to institutions operating in four different areas, namely community/charity, sport, education and culture.

In 2011, ASML also introduced a worldwide policy to support employees who organize or participate in a fundraising event via a physical activity such as running or cycling. The maximum contribution is set at 1,000 euros per participant per event. In total, 12,250 euros was donated to the causes that were supported, both in the Netherlands and the USA.

As part of our  Open Doors program in 2011, 1,995 non-business visitors toured our facilities (2010: 1,771 visitors).

ASML supports two partner high schools near its headquarters in the Netherlands and one grade school and one middle school near its USA headquarters. We support the schools with guest lessons, events, educational material, excursions etc. In 2011, more than 120 employees in the Netherlands and more than 30 in the US volunteered to participate in these activities. A third category of our educational activities in 2011 consisted of organizing and participating in educational events. ASML participated in four external and three internal events, meeting thousands of students and teachers. The events included the annual school debating contest with an ASML board member on the jury, Dutch national Girls’ Day, career orientation events for high school students, and the Jet Net annual Teachers' Day. More specific information about these topics can be found in the section 'Educational activities' in this chapter.
