2003 Intel Corporate Responsibility Report
Many variables are involved in the successful operation of a global enterprise. With today’s emphasis on worldwide competitiveness, pressures that include economic performance, environmental performance, employee and community safety, and social programs can pull a company in different directions.
At Intel, we pride ourselves on the fact that while our near-term economic priorities may shift, we maintain a long-term commitment to excellence in all areas in which we are involved. As corporate responsibility can encompass just about every relationship a company has, we can judge our success only by adding up all the details.
This is Intel’s third Global Citizenship Report. In it, we attempt to offer a balanced and reasonable presentation of our organization’s economic, environmental, and social performance in 2003 as well as outline our priorities for the future. We continue to publish this report in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative* (GRI) 2002 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines and will do so in the future.
For Intel, 2003 was a year of execution. We improved our global employee ethics training program and strengthened our network of risk controls across our finance and manufacturing organizations. Our employee injury rates improved 7% from 2002 and remain at world-class levels. Intel’s global waste recycling teams exceeded their goals for 2003 by recycling more than 66% of chemical waste and 74% of solid waste worldwide. This represents a total of 40,000 tons of material recycled, resulting in hundreds of thousands of dollars saved in landfill costs.
