Toward a New Era of Shared Corporate Responsibility
We aim to fully harness the power of technology to solve increasingly complex and interconnected global challenges over the next decade and beyond.
Intel Commits to Net-Zero Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Its Global Operations by 2040
We have set goals aimed at reducing the value chain footprint and catalyzing industry-wide action to address climate change.
Our ESG Framework and RISE Strategy
We have formalized our governance structure so that Intel's environmental, social, and governance (ESG) efforts are integrated throughout our business. Through our unified “One Intel” ESG framework, RISE, we aim to create a more responsible, inclusive, and sustainable world, enabled by technology and the expertise and passion of our employees.
We are building on our long history as a leader in corporate citizenship to further advance safety, wellness, and responsible business practices across our global manufacturing operations, our value chain, and beyond.
We set expectations with our suppliers that workers should not have to pay for their employment. As a result of our efforts, suppliers in our global supply chain have returned more than $26 million in fees to their workers since 2014.
Automated vehicle technology has the potential to improve road safety, save lives, and transform personal mobility. The Responsibility-Sensitive Safety model from Intel’s Mobileye business has become a leading model for global automated vehicle safety frameworks.
We continue to support the development of a more diverse technology industry through investments, collaborative initiatives, and research projects. We also work to inspire more girls, women, and underrepresented minorities to pursue and succeed in technology careers.
We believe we have a shared responsibility to combat the structural inequities impacting our employees and communities. At Intel, social equity means creating a world in which all people, regardless of their identity or background, have equal voice, representation, and access to opportunities.
As we continue to take actions to reduce Intel’s own global manufacturing and supply chain footprint and to advance product energy efficiency, we have also taken on the global challenge to collaborate with the technology industry and other stakeholders to achieve carbon-neutral computing by 2030.
Since the mid-1990s, we have increased our global recycling rate of non-hazardous waste from 25% to 87% even while Intel’s business and production have grown. We continue to find ways to recover materials and regenerate resources to create circular economy solutions that reduce costs and environmental impact.
We invest in programs that create opportunities for our employees to share their engineering and other skills with our communities. Since we launched the Intel Involved volunteer program in 1995, our employees have generously donated more than 20.6 million hours of service.
The Intel Foundation strives to empower human potential and ignite positive change, creating opportunities that impact the future and advance gender and racial equity and social justice globally. Since its founding, the Foundation has given nearly $793 million to communities worldwide.
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.
