Intel pledges to meet net-zero by 2040

Written by Fri 29 Apr 2022

Earlier this week, tech firm Intel committed to achieving net-zero by 2040, with Pat Gelsinger, Intel’s chief executive officer, acknowledging the damaging impact of climate change.


To meet these goals, Intel has set a number of milestones they aim to reach by 2030, including achieving 100% usage of renewable electricity across all global operations. As part of the journey to net-zero, Intel announced an investment of $300 million in enhancing energy conservation in its facilities to save a total of 4 billion cumulative kilowatt hours of energy.

“As one of the world’s leading semiconductor design and manufacturing companies, Intel is in a unique position to make a difference not only in our own operations, but in a way that makes it easier for customers, partners and our whole value chain to take meaningful action too,” explains Pat Gelsinger, Intel’s chief executive officer.

Intel is also working with suppliers in their supply chain to support them on their transition to net-zero and through this work expect to reduce supply chain greenhouse gas emissions to be a minimum of 30% lower by 2030.

While the focus will be on actively reducing emissions, Intel will also use carbon offsetting in areas where further efficiencies cannot be made. Collaboration is at the centre of Intel’s vision to become more sustainable, with partners, customers and suppliers all having a vital role to play.

Customers of Intel will also benefit from this sustainability drive, as products are set to become more energy efficient as the tech giant continues its work towards increasing product energy efficiency by 10 times for client and server microprocessors.

According to Intel, the businesses’ cumulative greenhouse gas emissions in the last decade have been reduced 75%, compared to if the firm did not take action and make investments to reduce these emissions.
