We strive to help build a world where everyone can reach their full potential.

Advancing Stewardship

By introducing programs to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, conserve water and decrease waste streams we’re advancing stewardship and shaping a more sustainable future.

Our ESG Journey

Proactively managing our environmental, social and governance (ESG) impacts is an integral part of our mission to advance humanity. Our ESG strategy serves as a roadmap to get us there—informing our decisions, holding us accountable for progress within our business and our communities, and helping our customers achieve their own ESG goals.

We are on a journey to continually improve our understanding of the evolving ESG topics most relevant to KLA, manage them accordingly, and drive improvements in our performance. As part of our drive to be better, we have set a goal to use 100% renewable electricity across our global operations by 2030. Looking ahead, we will continue to build out our long-term ESG strategy with an eye toward further reducing our climate impact, increasing disclosure and deepening the positive impact we deliver through our business and community engagement.
