ASML is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of chip-making equipment. Headquartered in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, ASML employs more than 16,500 people.
We appointed an operations domain owner in 2011, who is responsible for our strategy and reports to the Sustainability Board each quarter. He supervises programs regarding energy, CO2, water, waste, ISO 14001 certification, safety and IT. In scope for 2011 are our manufacturing locations at Veldhoven, Linkou and Wilton for energy, CO2, water and waste. Until the end of 2010, locations Tempe and Richmond were also part of our figures, but Tempe is no longer a manufacturing location and Richmond has been sold. For ISO 14001 and safety all ASML worldwide locations are in scope. In 2011, we initiated quarterly meetings to align sustainable operations between Veldhoven, Linkou and Wilton.
We decided to centralize our environment, health, safety and security strategy in 2011 and created the position of worldwide Environmental, Health, Safety and Security (EHSS) Manager. This worldwide manager will take up the role in Q1 2012.
We also strengthened our reporting process with respect to the above programs. We have fully integrated environmental management into our business planning and decision making by setting internal targets, which we monitor all the time. These targets drive our activities in the sustainability operations programs, as well as on noise level management, soil risk management, transportation management and training and communication on environmental matters.
