What’s New: The Wall Street Journal included Intel on its ranking of the 100 Most Sustainably Managed Companies in the World. This ranking assessed more than 5,000 publicly traded businesses on a range of sustainability metrics. The methodology takes a broad view of sustainability by assessing a company’s leadership and governance practices for their ability to create value for shareholders over the long term.
“Our commitment to positive global impact is embedded in our purpose to create world-changing technology that enriches the lives of every person on Earth. We are honored to be recognized by the Wall Street Journal for our longstanding sustainability efforts and transparency in reporting. As we look to the future, we will continue our work to reduce our own environmental footprint while enabling our customers and the industry to do the same.”
–Todd Brady, Intel senior director of Global Public Affairs and Sustainability
Why It Matters: There is an urgent need for action as the world continues to face serious climate issues, from devastating wildfires to severe floods and hurricanes. This recognition underscores Intel’s longstanding commitment to sustainability and transparency. The company released its first Environmental, Health and Safety Report in 1994. Looking ahead, Intel has set ambitious 2030 sustainability goals, which include absolute carbon emissions reductions, 100% renewable energy use, net positive water use and zero total waste to landfill.
