Veeco Releases 2021 Sustainability Report
Report highlights progress towards environmental, social and governance goals
Veeco Instruments has released its 2021 sustainability report highlighting the company's environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives. In particular, the third annual report spotlights Veeco's progress towards their ESG goals released earlier this year.
“I think of 2021 as an inflection point for Veeco,” said Bill Miller, Veeco's CEO. “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. Our first set of ESG Goals, released earlier in 2022, was an important milestone on our sustainability journey, and we are excited to share our progress in this 2021 report.”
The report features, among other updates, details pertaining to Veeco's ESG goals, including baselines and the steps being taken to achieve them. A detailed account of the company's 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.
