Intel Corp.

"Intel Corp., a company based in the USA, has set a net zero target for 2040. Net Zero Tracker
This target specifically covers Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, including carbon dioxide and other GHGs. Net Zero Tracker
The company has not specified if Scope 3 emissions are included in its target. Net Zero Tracker
Intel's environmental policy includes a commitment to achieve net positive water, 100% renewable electricity, and zero waste to landfill by 2030. Net Zero Tracker
An interesting fact about their policy is that they plan to start reporting progress towards both their 2030 …"

Sector Benchmark

Note: Latest GHG and revenue data (based on tradingview.com) are used to calculate GHG emissions intensity by sector. The color scale of each bubble depends on the GHG intensity (GHG emissions per 1 million USD revenue). Sectors follow the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) that organize companies based on their primary business activities. The 11 sectors are : Information Technology, Health Care, Financials, Consumer Discretionary, Communication Services, Industrials, Consumer Staples, Energy, Utilities, Real Estate, and Materials.

Intel Corp. belongs to the sector Information Technology.

Offsets

Last update for Intel by zerotracker.net: Sept. 28, 2023
Planning to use external offset credits Yes
Separate targets for emission reductions and removals No
Conditions on use of offset credits
  • Other conditions
Plans for carbon dioxide removal (CDR) Yes (unspecified)

Additional notes: (page 71, 2022-23 CSR Report) "We seek to reduce our absolute emissions to reach our net-zero commitment by 2040, and only purchase carbon offsets or removal credits after feasible reduction options have been exhausted." (Pg. 23, 2021-22 CSR Report) "In 2021, we launched the 2030 RISE Employee Engagement Champion Network, with a goal to sign on a minimum of 90 Intel employees with either a corporate responsibility function or role or as volunteers. We surpassed this goal by over 40%. We launched a sustainability training program with our external training provider, EARTH51, with great feedback on tools and learnings that empower employees to take sustainability actions on their own. Employees on the network achieved over 40,000 tons of carbon offsets on the program which went into direct projects in developing countries."
