Intel IT: Adding Business Value with IT Sustainability
At Intel IT, we think “green” everyday under a formal IT Sustainability Program. In 2010, we implemented projects that reduced our consumption of IT associated emissions by ~60,000 metric tons of co2 and saved Intel’s business approximately $5.8M. We are committed members of Climate Savers and Green Grid, and adopted an internal IT goal to manage our IT Energy footprint and contribute to Intel’s energy reduction of 5% per year from 2007 - 2012. Our efforts have been recognized with several industry awards, including the InfoWorld Green 15 award, for the past three years.
The focus areas below provide insight into our IT Sustainability best practices and the business value we create.
