Axcelis is committed to making a positive difference in the world by creating innovative technology and conducting our business in a manner that helps us take better care of our planet, our communities and ourselves. In everything we do—from designing systems that use less electricity to enabling device technology that extends battery life to optimizing our recycling programs—we strive to work smarter, safer and greener. We do all of this with unwavering commitment to maintaining a workplace in which every employee, customer and business partner receives the support and respect required to optimize performance and human dignity.
Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy is an umbrella policy, which incorporates the United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Responsible Business Alliance Code of Conduct and other international codes, as well as our own Environmental and Health, and Safety Policies. The Axcelis CSR policy is also reflective of our Ethical Business Conduct at Axcelis Policy, and our commitment to a humane workplace.
Our Corporate Social Responsibility policy has been approved by our Board of Directors and compliance with the Axcelis CSR and incorporated policies have a high level of visibility within Axcelis. Our Chief Executive Officer and the executive team oversee this policy and monitor it carefully through quarterly reviews of performance.
In 2019, we took steps to ensure Axcelis’ commitments reach into the businesses around the globe who support us. We implemented a Supplier Code of Conduct, which informs our global supply chain of our environmental, safety and social standards and requires our direct and indirect suppliers to adhere to the same principles.
