Our Focus Areas
Intel has a long-standing commitment to corporate responsibility. We set ambitious goals and make strategic investments to drive improvements in environmental sustainability, supply chain responsibility, diversity and inclusion, and social impact.
60B Gallons of Water Saved
To date, our water conservation efforts have saved about 60 billion gallons of water. In addition to our 2020 water use goal, in 2017 we announced a new goal to restore 100% of our global water use by 2025.
Supply Chain Responsibility
$13M in Fees Returned
To prevent forced and bonded labor in our supply chain, we set expectations with our suppliers that workers should not have to pay for their employment. As a result, our suppliers have returned over $13 million in fees to their workers since 2014.
Diversity and Inclusion
Diverse Hiring Goal Exceeded
In August 2017, we pulled in our 2020 diversity goal by two years to achieve full representation in our U.S. workforce by the end of 2018. Our gap to full representation has narrowed from 2,300 employees in 2015 to 376 employees at the end of 2017—an 84% improvement.
Creating a Better World Through Technology and Passionate Employees
As part of our commitment to broaden access to opportunity, we helped 14,000 underserved young people acquire technology skills for jobs of the future. We also empowered our employees to apply their expertise to solve global challenges, support our local communities, and inspire the next generation of innovators. Employees have volunteered more than 10 million hours globally over the last 10 years.
