Veeco releases 2021 sustainability report
Epitaxial deposition and process equipment maker Veeco Instruments Inc of Plainview, NY, USA has released its 2021 sustainability report, highlighting its environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives. In particular, the third annual report spotlights Veeco’s progress towards its ESG goals released earlier this year.
“I think of 2021 as an inflection point for Veeco,” comments CEO Bill Miller. “We completed a company-wide transformation and are now squarely focused on executing our growth strategy and strengthening our commitment to ESG. Our vision is to enable a future where technology improves the human experience, and we recognize that achieving our vision is dependent, in part, on our corporate sustainability efforts,” he adds. “Our first set of ESG Goals, released earlier in 2022, was an important milestone on our sustainability journey.”
The new report features, among other updates, details pertaining to the firm’s ESG goals, including baselines and the steps being taken to achieve them. A detailed account of the ongoing implementation of a hazardous chemical management program, disclosure aligned with the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), and year-over-year improvements in the rate of renewable energy procurement and emissions intensity are just a few of the developments that point to Veeco’s alignment with stakeholders and commitment to corporate responsibility.
