Sustainability

For people, planet and profit

We focus on five strategic areas of sustainability to create long-term value for our stakeholders and shape a sustainable future

Corporate citizenship

We are committed to conducting our business in an accountable and caring way, for our employees and the wider communities we operate in.

 

 

Supporting global goals


ASML supports the 2030 ambition defined in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These goals aim to protect the planet and improve the lives of people everywhere. We have highlighted in each focus area how our activities support these goals. For full details on how all our business activities contribute, please refer to our annual report.
