Committed to accountability and transparency
Our goal is to build a relationship of trust with our stakeholders, which include employees, customers, suppliers, shareholders and society.
We aim to be as open and transparent as possible about our structure, financial reporting, internal controls and procedures, and decision-making process. We also look for ways to improve by monitoring developments in corporate governance practice.
ASML has a two-tier board structure with a board of management responsible for managing the company under the supervision of an independent supervisory board. ASML’s shares are listed on Euronext Amsterdam and NASDAQ.
Shareholders play an important role in ASML’s governance. Next to the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board, shareholders participate in our general meetings, held at least once a year.
The Supervisory Board consists of nine experienced business and technology professionals from around the world. In addition to overseeing business activities, they keep a keen eye on risk management, company culture, corporate social responsibility and the company’s relationship with shareholders, and safeguard our integrity in reporting and compliance.
Board of Management
Our executives set and achieve ASML’s objectives, strategy and policies, and manage general affairs. ASML’s Board of Management is composed of six members. The CEO and CTO are joint presidents, with the CEO serving as chair and the CTO as vice chair.
