Being an industry leader isn’t just about market share, technology prowess or the size of a company’s workforce; it’s also about the way we interact with our employees, customers, local communities where we operate and the environment we share. It is about acting responsibly.
At Applied, our business practices reflect the company’s commitment to acting responsibly with the highest standards of integrity. Our engagement with employees, customers, and communities reflects our core value of making a positive social contribution around the world.
The Applied Materials 2014 Citizenship Report focuses on three areas critical to our operations: Sustainability, Community Investments, and the Workplace. Included in the report is information about our practices and performance in environmental stewardship, social investment, employee development, and public policy.
I invite you to explore the programs and accomplishments that resulted in the company being recognized by Corporate Responsibility Magazine in its annual list of 100 Best Corporate Citizens.
