    Snr Manager Sustainability / ESG

    We’re not like most. We don’t just overcome obstacles – we don’t see them. Instead, we see the potential in every person, and every situation. We don’t wait for opportunity to appear – we create it. Meet ASM. A company that has been searching for people just like you.

    Who is ASM?

    ASM is a leading, global supplier of semiconductor wafer processing equipment. Our ambitious team is dedicated to delivering innovative technology solutions to the world’s leading semiconductor manufacturers. We have over 2,600 employees based in 14 countries, including Belgium, Japan, Netherlands, South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan and United States. Together we work to develop Epitaxy, ALD, PEALD, Vertical Furnaces and PECVD thin-film deposition technologies for our customers. Our goal is to remain an industry leader by being ahead of what’s next. We accomplish this by focusing on finding collaborative solutions to make integrated circuits, or chips, smaller, faster and even more powerful.

    ASM, an inclusive workplace

    We at ASM are a truly global organization that works diligently with an open-mind in all areas of our business. We strive for a culture and work style that fosters trust and transparency. We put our people first, and that is how we will continue to succeed. We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity. We recognize and value the differences between individuals, including gender, ethnicity, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, knowledge and experience, work background, age, skills, amongst others. Recruiting and developing a diverse workforce provides a wide range of perspectives. This enables a culture of continuously exploring and adopting new technological ideas and innovations, and it also enables us to deliver excellent products and service to our clients.

    Title: Senior Manager, Global Climate and Environment

    We are hiring a team member to play a critical role in our sustainable climate, energy, and environmental strategy toward our Net Zero by 2035 and related ambitions. This role will be highly visible and contribute toward the strategy of both our interim and long-term objectives relative to climate and environment. You will work with both internal and external stakeholders to decarbonize ASM’s business and reduce our overall environmental footprint.

    This role will work in coordination with the Sustainability team, the Environmental/Health & Safety team, Supply Chain responsibility, Product Engineering, and other internal partners. To be successful in this role, candidates must demonstrate exceptional ability to work across a number of disciplines, forming strong partnerships and values, and contribute to others’ success toward both ASM’s and their own success. This includes a strong technical knowledge, regulatory and standards knowledge, and strategic and critical thinking to all you touch.

    You will also contribute toward and engage in ASM’s public disclosure strategy related to climate and environment. We are looking for someone with experience in reporting standards and frameworks, including but not limited to CDP, SASB, GRI, and TCFD. Your deep knowledge in these will help frame what is material and important for ASM to maintain in its strategies, and contribute to transparent and productive disclosure reporting.

    Above all else, we are looking for someone passionate in making a difference, contributing to the greater good, and helping advance ASM’s response toward climate and environmental action.
