Intel Recognized as a World Leader for Supplier Engagement on Climate Change
Intel Corporation was recently recognized by CDP as a global leader for its actions and strategies to manage carbon and climate change across its supply chain. Intel is among the 3% of organizations recognized for their actions to reduce emissions and lower climate-related risks in the supply chain.
Our supply chain comprises more than 19,000 suppliers in over 100 countries. We hold them to strong standards of operation in order to have a positive impact on the world around us while building better technology. As part of our commitment, we are focused on the following areas:
Combating Slavery and Human Trafficking
We've worked with suppliers to build a strong system to detect and address forced and bonded labor in our supply chain. Our policies require no employee passports to be withheld and no fees charged to workers to obtain or keep their employment. To date, these policies have resulted in more than $13 million in fees returned by suppliers to workers.
Sourcing Conflict-Free Minerals
Since 2008, we have worked extensively to develop responsible mineral-sourcing options for Intel and our industry. We're proud to have manufactured microprocessors that are conflict-free since 2013.
Reducing Environmental Impact
We remain diligent about minimizing our impact on the environment with our suppliers. We set expectations for greenhouse gas emission reporting and reduction, and we are proud to report that 100% of suppliers responded to a request to submit carbon footprint data. We're also working to implement a green chemical screening process to support safer alternatives.
Supporting Supplier Diversity
We understand that working with a diverse supply chain brings increased innovation to our business and creates a more responsive and competitive supply base. We spent over $650 million with diverse suppliers in 2017, making significant progress toward reaching our 2020 goal of $1 billion in annual diverse spending.
