International World Water Day: Water is a Global Issue

In honor of International World Water Day and with the ever-present backdrop of water as a precious, dwindling resource, I couldn’t help but reflect on the innovative technology which has enabled water managers across the world to gain greater insights on regional water resources and distribution. It is encouraging to hear that today’s technology has resulted in more sophisticated and more powerful tools that are improving water distribution, and therefore the way we live.

A Strong Ethical Foundation is a Competitive Advantage

As Ombudsman, it gives me great pleasure to share an award that has been hard-earned by each and every member of our workforce at Applied Materials. Today, the Company has been named to Ethisphere’s 2012 list of the World’s Most Ethical Companies. Ethisphere is a research-based business ethics institute and recognizes companies that go beyond making statements about doing business ethically and translating those words into action. This is the first year Applied has participated in the application process.
