2013 Ray Anderson Radical Industrialism Award: Intel Corporation

Published on Posted in Community

At the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in Philadelphia in November 2013, USGBC recognized those who've shown outstanding dedication to the movement to green our built environment through the annual Leadership Awards.

USGBC Platinum member Intel Corporation was selected as the recipient of the inaugural Ray Anderson Radical Industrialism Award. Intel is an industry trailblazer that raises the bar for sustainable operations. It has been the largest voluntary purchaser of green power in the U.S. since 2008, and green power purchases account for the equivalent to 100 percent of its U.S. electricity use.

“Intel’s committed to sustainability for a couple reasons: One is we want to ensure that we reduce emissions around all of our factory facilities around the world, and the second is we want to focus on energy efficiency and conservation,” said Neil Tunmore, vice president of the Technology and Manufacturing Group and director of corporate services at Intel. “We’re in these buildings for the long term, and so we realize not only is there energy conservation benefit for us, but I think it’s just the right thing to do.”
