Reducing Environmental Impact

Intel must be creative in how to manage, recycle, and re-use a diverse range of waste from manufacturing waste to construction waste, food waste, and everything in between. Taimur Burki, Intel’s Global Green Building and Waste Program Manager, says that it’s important to determine how to manage this waste responsibly so we don’t just leave issues for future generations. For example, the employee... cafes at Intel are a great success story. Thousands of Intel employees now use reusable plates, forks, and cups daily instead of disposable paper. Intel also purchases sustainably grown and local food where possible – up to 30 percent of the food served in their cafes is sustainably and locally grown.
