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.

Accelerating Progress Against the World’s Critical Challenges

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.

Our RISE Strategy

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.

Responsible

Lead in advancing safety, wellness, and responsible business practices across our global manufacturing operations, our value chain, and beyond.

Source Minerals Responsibly

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.

Standardize Lifesaving Technologies

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.

Revolutionize Health and Safety

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.

Inclusive

Advance diversity and inclusion across our global workforce and industry, and expand opportunities for others through technology, inclusion, and digital readiness initiatives.

Advance Diversity in Our Global Workforce

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.

Drive Industry-Wide Action Through a New Global Inclusion Index

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.

Make Technology Fully Inclusive and Expand Digital Readiness

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.

Sustainable

Be a global leader in sustainability and enable our customers and others to reduce their environmental impact through our actions and technology.

Advance Sustainable Global Manufacturing Practices

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.

Reduce Emissions at the Industry Level

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.

Achieve Carbon-Neutral Computing

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.

Enabling

Through innovative technology and the expertise and passion of our employees, we enable positive change within Intel, across our industry, and beyond.
