Intel recently released its 2012 Corporate Responsibility Report, which shows the company performed strongly in areas including employee engagement, environmental sustainability, supply chain systems, and education. The report also showcases the progress Intel has made toward its environmental goals for 2020, which aim to reduce the environmental impact of the company’s manufacturing processes and its products. With this year’s report, Intel has reached nearly two decades of corporate responsibility reporting and is continuing to promote transparency in its performance and actions.
The Intel blog outlines its targets as:
- Becoming the largest purchaser of green power in the U.S., according to the U.S. EPA, for the past five years, and achieving LEED certification for 29 buildings and factories globally
- Empowering our employees to give back more than 5 million volunteer hours over the past five years, and launching new engagement programs such as the Intel Education Service Corps and Sustainability in Action Grant programs
- Reaching millions of teachers and students globally through our education programs and technology solutions, including new initiatives to address the gender gap in education and technology access
