Launching a New Era of Shared Corporate Responsibility
Our commitment to positive global impact is embedded in our purpose to create technology that enriches the lives of every person on earth.
Our world is facing challenges unlike any we have seen before. The urgent need for action on issues like climate change, the deep digital divide, lack of inclusion, and global pandemics calls for a new era of shared responsibility.
We are raising the bar for ourselves and evolving our corporate responsibility strategy to increase the scale of our work with others to create a more responsible, inclusive, and sustainable world, enabled through technology and our collective actions.
Lead in advancing safety, wellness, and responsible business practices across our global manufacturing operations, our value chain, and beyond.
For more than a decade, we have worked to advance progress on the issue of conflict minerals. As we look to 2030, we will significantly broaden our impact and accelerate the creation of sourcing standards for a much wider set of minerals across additional regions.
According to the World Health Organization, 1.35 million people die each year as a result of road traffic crashes. We will collaborate with our industry and ecosystem partners to advance the adoption of technology-neutral safety standards to reduce traffic accidents globally.
We will work with others to accelerate cures for diseases; improve healthcare access and affordability; and build smarter, safer workplaces. Our Pandemic Response Technology Initiative, for example, aims to improve the diagnosis and treatment of COVID-19.
Advance diversity and inclusion across our global workforce and industry, and expand opportunities for others through technology, inclusion, and digital readiness initiatives.
We will increase women in technical roles to 40%, double the number of women and underrepresented minorities in senior leadership, and ensure that inclusive leadership practices and accountability are embedded in our culture globally.
We will work with other companies to create a Global Inclusion Index to align on common definitions and metrics to accelerate the adoption of inclusive business practices and track progress.
We aim to partner with 30 governments and 30,000 institutions worldwide to empower more than 30 million people with AI skills training for current and future jobs. The Intel® AI for Youth program, for example, empowers students to learn while creating their own social impact projects.
Be a global leader in sustainability and enable our customers and others to reduce their environmental impact through our actions and technology.
By 2030, we will achieve net positive water use, 100% renewable power, zero total waste to landfill, and additional absolute carbon emissions reductions, even as we grow our manufacturing capacity.
We will create a collective approach to reducing emissions for the semiconductor manufacturing industry and increase the use of technology to reduce climate impact in global manufacturing.
We will work with our customers and others to transform product energy use and apply technology to reduce computing-related climate impacts across the global economy. This will include collaboration with PC manufacturers to build the most sustainable and energy-efficient PC on the planet—one that minimizes carbon, water, and waste in its design and use.
Through innovative technology and the expertise and passion of our employees, we enable positive change within Intel, across our industry, and beyond.
Intel has a long track record of setting ambitious goals and transparently reporting on our performance. Read about our progress—past, present, and future—in our annual Corporate Responsibility Report.
