Intel and the Environment: Responsible Operations
At Intel, we continually strive to improve our operations and minimize our impact on the environment. We’ve been the largest voluntary producer of green power in the U.S. (in 2008, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency), and our commitment continues to grow. Our green power purchases in 2011 accounted for 85 percent of our U.S. electricity use, up from 50 percent in 2008.
In our view, a commitment to sustainability requires a broad portfolio of efforts. To this end, we vigilantly pursue new ways to reduce emissions and improve energy management through conservation, renewable energy, efficient building design, and other efforts.
