Company news - Intel

Intel is another company that participates in the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX). CCX is the US cap and trade system in which members make a legally binding commitment to reduce their emissions by 6% by 2010 compared to a baseline of average annual emissions from 1998 to 2001.

Intel is also a member of the EPA’s Climate Leaders program and has a goal to reduce worldwide greenhouse gas emissions by 30% per unit of production from 2004 through 2010. According to its CSR report, at the end of 2008 it was on track to meet the goal, having reduced emissions 40% below 2004 levels on a per chip basis.

In 2008, the company set an additional goal to reduce the absolute CO2 impact of operations 20% below 2007 levels by 2012. In fact in 2008 absolute emissions were down 26% compared with 2007, while emissions on a per chip basis were down 23%. However, approximately two-thirds of the decrease was the result of purchasing renewable energy credits. The focus really needs to be on less use of energy all round.
