ASM Sets 2035 Goals

ASM International N.V., a Netherlands-based company and its subsidiaries that design and manufacture equipment and process solutions to produce semiconductor devices for wafer processing, announced the launch of its Climate Transition Plan to reach its net-zero emissions target by 2035.

The company’s plan outlines a pathway to decarbonize its operations, products, and supply chain, playing a role in transitioning the semiconductor industry toward an environmentally sustainable future.

“Our Climate Transition Plan is not just a statement of intent; it is our blueprint for action. ASM is proud to be the first semiconductor company to receive a Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) Net Zero target verification in 2023, underscoring our commitment. With our plan aligned with this scientific standard, ASM is at the forefront of the industry’s move towards a sustainable future,” said Benjamin Loh, President and CEO of ASM, in a statement.

The plan also highlights ASM’s achievements to date, including achieving 88% renewable electricity in 2023, which is aligned with a goal to source 100% renewable energy by 2024.

The company also achieved BCA  Green Mark Gold+ green building certification in Singapore; pursued LEED Gold minimum rating for new state-of-the-art sustainable facilities in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Dongtan, South Korea; and deepened supplier engagement through the CDP Supply Chain Program.

ASM plans to focus on renewable energy for its own operations and value chain energy needs. Innovation in product energy efficiency will additionally reduce its own and downstream operational footprint. Moving toward low-carbon procurement will reduce the impact of its purchased goods.
