Computing giant Intel says it will work with PC manufacturers to create the “most sustainable and energy-efficient PC in the world” – one that eliminates carbon, water and waste in its design and use.
The company says it is exploring a sustainability roadmap that would include enabling sensor technology to reduce power usage, partnering with material vendors on recyclable packaging and developing longer-term, energy-efficient architectures.
The world is facing challenges that we understand better each day as we collect and analyze more data, but they go unchecked without a collective response
It sets out to collaborate with industry and policymakers to apply technology to reduce emissions across high-impact industries.
The commitment is part of its newly published Corporate Responsibility Report, which establishes a new 2030 strategy and goals for continued progress for the next decade – achieving net positive water use, 100% green power and zero waste to landfills across Intel’s global manufacturing operations.
Intel CEO Bob Swan, said: “The world is facing challenges that we understand better each day as we collect and analyze more data, but they go unchecked without a collective response – from climate change to deep digital divides around the world to the current pandemic that has fundamentally changed all our lives. We can solve them, but only by working together.
“Intel and many others in technology-driven industries see the opportunity to leverage our R&D, creativity, expertise and influence to collaborate on these critical issues and will become even stronger and more relevant as a result.
“For Intel, it’s embedded in our purpose to create world-changing technology that enriches the lives of every person on Earth.”
