ESH Committee

The Environment, Safety, and Health (ESH) Committee works to advance the priorities of the industry with regard to environmental sustainability and health and safety. The Committee has led industry efforts to successfully achieve reduction goals in the emissions of perfluorocompounds (PFCs), a group of gases used in the semiconductor manufacturing process that can contribute to global climate change, and reducing most uses and virtually eliminating emissions of perfluorooctanyl sulfonates (PFOS), a chemical used in the manufacturing process that was identified by international bodies as a chemical of concern.

The Committee makes recommendations to the GAMS on environmental policies, including harmonized global product regulations and the management of chemicals.

The Committee includes the active participation of all WSC members.
