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.
64B Gallons of Water Saved
To date, our water conservation efforts have saved about 64 billion gallons of water. In 2018, we returned or restored 80% of our global water use and are on track to meet our goal to restore 100% by 2025.
Supply Chain Responsibility
>$14M in Fees Returned
To prevent forced and bonded labor, we set expectations with our suppliers that workers should not have to pay fees to obtain or keep employment. As a result, our suppliers have returned over $14 million in fees to workers since 2014.
Diversity and Inclusion
Achieved Global Gender Pay Equity
In 2018, we achieved full representation in our U.S. workforce—two years earlier than our 2020 goal. We also began globalizing our analytics and, in early 2019, announced that we had achieved gender pay equity globally.
~1.5M Volunteer Hours
Our employees surpassed Intel’s 50th anniversary goal in 2018 to have 50,000 employees give 1 million hours to local communities, with over 68,000 volunteers contributing approximately 1.5 million hours. Employees have volunteered more than 10 million hours globally over the last 10 years.
For Intel, social impact is about empowering employees to apply their time, talent, and technology. In 2017, the Intel Foundation established a new team around rebuilding communities that could potentially be applied to disaster response scenarios.
Intel’s partnership with McClymonds High School to improve STEM led to 31 seniors completing the engineering pathway program and going to college.
