ASM International N.V. (Euronext Amsterdam: ASM) announces today its target to achieve Net Zero emissions by 2035.

ASM recognizes the importance of the climate crisis to all stakeholders. Accordingly, this Net Zero aim is a priority in ASM’s sustainability strategy.

“We have built a solid foundation of achievements in sustainability over the past years. We now take important steps forward with our sustainability strategy for the next horizon, of which this Net Zero target is a priority, as we strive to make a positive impact in the world.” said Benjamin Loh, CEO of ASM International.

The target includes setting science based targets for Scope 1, 2, and 3 Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions, with the aim: to reduce emissions as near to zero as possible, to maximize the sourcing of electricity from renewable sources, and to neutralize remaining emissions.

As the climate crisis transcends the actions of any one company, industry, or country, we intend to collaborate across our value chain for collective global impact. Further, ASM strives to embody high standards in the definition, scope, transparency, and realization of this target.

ASM’s next steps in its 2035 Net Zero target will be:

  • ASM has completed a detailed study of its Scope 2 emissions with the assistance of a recognized external expert, based on which it will source 100% of its electricity from renewable sources for all of its global operations from 2024 onward. Before that time ASM has the aim to:
    • Source 100% of its electricity from renewable sources for key sites in the U.S., The Netherlands, Finland, Japan, and Singapore, from 2021 onwards. Relative to its 2020, baseline this would represent a ~70% absolute reduction of ASM Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions.
    • Source 100% of its electricity from renewable sources for the remainder of its global operations from 2024 onwards. Relative to its 2020 baseline, this would represent a ~90% absolute reduction of ASM Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions.
  • We intend to align our target to the Paris Agreement 1.5°C pathway;
  • Size ASM’s Scope 3 footprint and set a target for all scopes before the end of 2022;
  • Accelerate the further energy and resource efficiency improvement of its products;
  • Provide further interim goals on the pathway to Net Zero; and
  • Develop an emissions compensation and neutralization strategy to address residual emissions.
