2010 Corporate Responsibility Report
In this report, we discuss our corporate responsibility performance during 2010, including our strategic approach to key environmental, social, and governance indicators. We prepared this report using the Global Reporting Initiative* (GRI) G3.1 guidelines, and we self-declare the report at the GRI Application Level A.
Throughout Intel’s history, we have pushed the boundaries of what’s possible to improve how people work, live, and play. Our vision for the next decade is even more ambitious: to create and extend computing technology to connect and enrich the lives of every person on earth. A key determinant of our success will be our ability to innovate and advance our leadership in corporate responsibility. At Intel, we don’t separate corporate responsibility from our business. One of the four objectives in our global strategy is, “Care for our people and our planet, and inspire the next generation.” Every person at Intel has a role in achieving this objective, whether they design our products, work in our factories, or interface directly with our customers or suppliers. Our employees’ ongoing focus and achievements create value for Intel and for society.
Care for our people.
We work to cultivate a safe, respectful, and ethical work environment that enables employees to thrive both on the job and in their communities. We invest heavily in mentoring, training, and leadership development programs, including targeted initiatives aimed at increasing the number of women and under-represented minorities in our managerial ranks. By investing in our employees, we empower them to build stronger communities; in 2010, close to half of Intel’s workforce donated more than 1 million hours of service in schools and nonprofit organizations globally.
Care for the planet.
Development of energy-efficient computing technologies is a key part of our efforts to help our customers conserve energy and address the issue of climate change. Our new Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series for servers, for example, can increase performance by up to 40% while also saving power compared to the previous-generation Intel® Xeon® processor 5500 series. For the past three years, Intel has been the largest voluntary purchaser of green power in the U.S., according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. In 2010, we also opened our first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)-certified building, a design center in Israel.
