Sustainability

Rapid population growth, global economic development, and ongoing consumption of our earth’s limited natural resources are converging to create growing sustainability concerns.  Sustainability is based on the simple principle that everything we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. Sustainability creates and maintains the conditions under which humans and nature can productively co-exist, thereby fulfilling the social, economic and other requirements of present and future generations, through conservation, stewardship, and corporate responsibility.

Brooks is committed to sustainability.  Our products and services fully comply with all applicable environmental health and safety laws and regulations and are safe for both the environment and the people who use them in their intended markets and applications.

Our Commitment

  • Resource Conservation – We make a focused effort to preserve natural resources both in our operating facilities and in our product offerings to customers through recycling and diversion programs.
  • Product Stewardship – We work hard to minimize the environmental impact of products and/or services, emphasize ”design for environmental, health and safety management,” and utilize refurbishing efforts to extend the life of Brooks products.
  • Global Care™ Partnership - We are active participants in Global Care, a semiconductor and equipment industry initiative designed to establish a framework on which the diverse membership of SEMI can build and strengthen commitment to the environment, health and safety (EHS)
