We relentlessly push the boundaries of smart and connected technology to outdo what’s been done before. As the world leader in computing innovation, Intel makes amazing experiences possible for every person on Earth. We have embedded corporate responsibility and sustainability into our strategy, management systems, and long-term goals. We believe that this integrated approach creates value for Intel as well as our stockholders, customers, and society.
Intel is committed to being a leader in environmental responsibility. We
strive to continuously improve energy efficiency, reduce emissions, and
conserve resources throughout our operations. We also focus on improving the
energy-efficient performance of our products and collaborate with others to
develop innovative ways that technology can address long-term sustainability
We integrate environmental considerations across all facets of our business,
including our governance and compensation practices, facilities design,
manufacturing processes, and product design and development. While many
companies in the electronics industry outsource much of their production, we
design and manufacture the majority of our component products in our own
factories. We strongly emphasize environmental sustainability throughout our
global manufacturing operations.
For many years, our engineers have incorporated green design standards and
building concepts into the construction of our facilities. Since 2011,
Intel’s policy has been to design all new buildings to a minimum Leadership
in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) silver certification level, and in
2014, we revised our policy to design all new buildings to a minimum LEED
gold certification level. We are a founding charter member of the USGBC LEED User Group for Industrial Facilities.
