Lam’s equipment is used to create the semiconductors in electronics products that are helping to improve the quality of life of people around the world. Likewise, we recognize that Lam has an obligation to positively impact the regions where our employees live and work and to produce our equipment responsibly.
Reflecting our values-based culture, Lam’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs have two broad areas of focus:
- Activities centered on the company’s products and services
Lam Research is committed to delivering products that are safe and designed with environmental stewardship in mind. We work with our global customers to reduce our environmental footprint in terms of energy consumption and manufacturing waste streams. In supply chain management, we are engaged with our global customers and suppliers to ensure compliance with emerging regulations involving issues such as human trafficking and slavery and the use of conflict minerals. Underlying these activities, the quality standards that drive the development of our products are rigorous: Lam Research was one of the first companies in the semiconductor industry to be registered to the Quality Management System standard, ISO 9001.
- Activities centered on the communities where Lam employees live and work
As an extension of the company’s Core Values, we have implemented Community Engagement programs that touch the countries around the world where we do business. Our programs include support for education, employee gift matching, disaster relief and recovery efforts, and volunteer activities. Since 2000, Lam has donated approximately $13 million in contributions from the Lam Research Foundation and is recognized annually as a “Top Corporate Philanthropist” by both the San Francisco Business Times and the San Jose Business Journal.
