Global Care is 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). At SEMICON West and Intersolar North America we are proud to present EHS programs so that the semiconductor and PV industries can return to their businesses with new ideas to lessen the industries impact on the environment.
