Intel Announces Commitment to Virtually Zero Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 2040 Across Intel’s Global Business Operations | Intel Corporation press release

*This is an excerpt from material published in the United States on April 13, 2022.

latest information: Intel Corporation today announced its intention to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions, directly or indirectly, and to develop sustainable technology solutions. Intel has set goals to achieve virtually zero greenhouse gas emissions (Net-Zero) by 2040 in its global business operations, reducing carbon dioxide emissions by improving the energy efficiency of products and Intel platforms, and announced our commitment to developing solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. emissions as an initiative for the entire technology ecosystem through collaboration with our customers and industrial partners.

“The effects of climate change are an urgent global threat. To protect our planet, we need to take immediate action and come up with new ideas for global action guidelines. Intel, a leading company in the design and semiconductor manufacturing, is unique in its ability to drive meaningful action and make a difference not just in its own business, but across its customers, partners and value chains.”
–Pat Gelsinger, CEO of Intel Corporation

Importance of Intel in Business Activities: Intel has declared that it will achieve virtually zero greenhouse gas emissions (Scopes 1 and 2) across its operations by 2040. Intel’s priority is to proactively reduce emissions across the based on international standards and climate science. Only if there is no other option will we use reliable carbon offsets to achieve our goal.

To achieve this bold goal, Intel has set the following milestones for 2030:
・ 100% electricity consumption rate from renewable energy in commercial bases worldwide
・ Invest about $300 million in energy saving at commercial bases and reduce energy by 4 billion cumulative kilowatt hours (kWh)
• Build new manufacturing/commercial facilities that meet LEED® program standards developed and operated by the American Green Building Association, including recently announced investments in the United States, Europe and Asia.
-Launched a cross-industry R&D initiative to develop new abatement devices through the identification of more environmentally friendly chemicals with lower global warming potential

These goals reinforce our commitment to sustainable business practices in our Intel RISE strategy to date. this would not have been possible without investment and action to achieve the goal.

“Intel has been an industry leader in sustainability for decades. We are now breaking the hurdle to achieve virtually zero greenhouse gas emissions in our business operations by 2040. We are entering an exciting era It takes a lot of innovation and investment, but Intel is putting in the effort and working with the industry to accomplish this important mission.
–Keyvan Esfarjani, Senior Vice President and Global Chief Commercial Officer, Intel Corporation

Efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Scope 3: Intel will address the impact of climate change (Scope 3 emissions) across the entire value chain, from upstream to downstream. Intel’s Scope 3 strategy focuses on working with suppliers and customers to take proactive steps to reduce total emissions.

Supply chain initiatives: Intel is actively working with suppliers to help them focus on energy conservation and renewable energy sourcing, rationalize chemicals and resources, and shift to a semiconductor manufacturing value chain virtually without greenhouse gases. We identify areas for improvement such as a consortium. To accelerate progress, Intel is working with suppliers to announce a commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the supply chain by at least 30% from no investment and action by 2030.

Intel Product Initiatives: Intel will continue to drive product energy efficiency and market-demanded performance gains, supporting customers’ sustainability goals and helping to reduce Scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions when use of the products. Intel has set a new goal to improve the performance per watt of Falcon Shores, the next-generation HPC-AI XPU, by a factor of five. We will also continue to work towards our 2030 goal of increasing the energy efficiency of our client and server microprocessor products by 10 times.

To help our customers realize carbon dioxide savings at the platform level, Intel will continue to innovate in the following areas:
Reduce motherboard size by arranging, selecting and modularizing all internal components
Continuously improve system power efficiency and display efficiency, greatly reducing overall power consumption
-Uses bio-based circuit boards to facilitate separation of materials and parts during recycling and reduce overall e-waste

Intel has also set a new goal to reduce emissions from reference platform designs for client PCs by more than 30% by 2030. This effort is embodied in the “Concept Luna” prototype device developed by Dell in collaboration with Intel, demonstrating the future potential of sustainable PC design.

“Collaboration is important in finding solutions to critical environmental issues facing the world. Intel has optimized motherboards, developed bio-based circuit boards, improved system energy efficiency for Concept Luna devices, and more A key partner in driving collaborative innovation, this ongoing effort also provides an opportunity to test, prove and evaluate innovative and sustainable design ideas across Dell’s portfolio at scale. This effort is the only way to accelerate the circular economy and protect the planet for the next generation.
–Glen Robson, Chief Technology Officer, Client Solutions Group, Dell Technologies

Develop more sustainable solutions: Intel works with hundreds of customers and industry partners to develop solutions that meet the need for more efficient operation and significantly more computing power with less energy. As an example, Intel has partnered with companies such as Submer to begin piloting immersion cooling for data centers operated by cloud/communications service providers. This effort also includes the introduction of new principles such as heat recovery and reuse through immersion cooling.

“99% of the heat generated by computing equipment is absorbed at high temperatures as hot water with virtually no loss (of energy). Submer has partnered with Intel to store energy while storing the energy afterwards. It can be extended to a validated immersion cooling solution that captures heat and makes it reusable. This solution will radically change the way data centers are built and operated.”
–Submer co-founder and CEO, Daniel Pope

Expanding the use of renewable energy is an important step in reducing global greenhouse gas emissions. Intel has developed a solution that can be integrated with existing energy grid infrastructure, enabling a smart grid that can adapt to changing needs and sources of energy consumption. Intel and one of the world’s leading utilities have formed the Edge for Smart Secondary Substations alliance to modernize power grid substations and better support renewable energy sources. France’s largest utility, Enedis, recently joined the alliance to upgrade more than 800,000 secondary substations with solutions that provide real-time control across the entire network.

Intel’s programmable hardware and open software also help customers achieve more environmentally friendly solutions. As an example, KDDI reduced overall power consumption by 20% in a data center containing 5G communications equipment in a validation test using the Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor and comprehensive data management capabilities. power and artificial intelligence from Intel. It performs the adjustment of electricity consumption according to demand.

Various initiatives: Intel will keep you updated on the Net Zero plan and greener IT strategies throughout the year.
