Brewer Science, Inc., a developer and manufacturer of next-generation materials and processes for the microelectronics and optoelectronics industries, will be presenting its trailblazing efforts as a Certified B Corporation™ at the SEMICON West annual conference in hopes to inspire a more sustainable and inclusive industry.
In May 2021, Brewer Science became the first Certified B Corporation in the semiconductor industry. The certification accredits the company for meeting the “highest standards of corporate social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability to all their stakeholders.” An extensive audit evaluates all facets of the company, determining areas for improvement in the scope of five Impact Areas: Governance, Workers, Community, Environment, and Customers.
“Brewer Science was founded on the philosophy that directly aligns with the B Corp purpose of ‘using business as a force for good.’ We have programs in place that exemplify our commitment to our people, our customers, and the community. By sharing and collaborating with our supply chain counterparts, together we can create a more sustainable and inclusive industry,” states Matthew Beard, Executive Director of Strategic Planning, Management Systems, and Sustainability at Brewer Science.
Matthew Beard will be presenting at the SEMICON West conference with a talk titled, “Attracting and Retaining the Best Talent and the Purpose Driven Organization.”
The 2021 SEMICON West conference is held December 7th thru 9th at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California. The conference unites the entire extended electronics supply chain, with the mission “to see what’s next and discover the latest innovations driving industry growth.” Brewer Science is hosting a presentation at the event to encourage other tech innovators to consider B Corp certification for their companies to pave a pathway for continuous improvement within the industry.
