Sustainability Report 2021 60 Sustainability Report 2021 60 Environmental Health and Safety Our emissions reduction efforts are only one part of Applied Materials’ overall commitment to reducing our environmental impacts. Throughout our global operations, we also work continuously to reduce waste, conserve resources, promote safe and healthy work environments for our people and demonstrate environmental leadership in our communities. Our labs and manufacturing facilities account for the largest share of our global energy and water consumption. Throughout 2021, new conservation, efficiency, and recycling/reuse programs at individual Applied facilities complemented our existing corporate-level initiatives. To help reduce consumption within the semiconductor industry, we are working with our customers on our ambitious 3x30 goals, which include boosting manufacturing efficiency and driving a 30% reduction in equivalent energy consumption for our semiconductor products. EHS Policies, Systems, and Governance Applied Materials’ Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) policy commits our company to protect the environment. The policy is signed by our President and CEO, distributed to all Applied locations globally, and referenced often during site team and management meetings. Our EHS organization is an integrated entity with teams responsible for EHS in on-site operations (including construction, fire and life safety, and contractor safety), hazard and risk identification, customer site support operations, emergency preparedness, environmental management and product safety. These efforts are supported by company management and guided by our EHS policy. The Board’s Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee receives a report on EHS and sustainability matters each quarter and a more in-depth environmental and sustainability update annually. We implement our EHS policy through our Environmental Health and Safety Management System (EHSMS), which conforms with international management system standards such as ISO 14001, ISO 45001, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Voluntary Protection Program (VPP), and EHS documentation to the requirements of ISO 9000.
