Intel’s 2023 Sustainability Day was recently held in Beijing, focusing on “Sustainable Computing for a Sustainable Future”. During an interview with People’s Daily Online, Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger emphasized the importance of sustainability in the computing industry. He noted that semiconductors and computing form the backbone of the digital world, and their energy consumption is a growing concern.
To address these challenges, Intel has committed to being 100% powered by renewable energy by 2030, and it will lead in sustainable practices across all aspects of its operations. Intel will work closely with its suppliers to ensure that they adopt eco-friendly practices, and the company aims to reach a net-zero carbon footprint by 2040.
To drive digital transformation and green development, Intel is leveraging its expertise in five key areas: compute, connectivity, infrastructure, AI, and sensing. The company is also accelerating its IDM 2.0 strategy and plans to become a leading foundry by developing new transistor technologies at an unprecedented pace.
With almost four decades of experience in China, Intel is proud of its contributions to the country’s digital economy. Gelsinger sees China’s strong economic growth as an opportunity to build on these relationships and continue to drive sustainable innovation. Despite global economic challenges, he believes that technology can be a force for good, and Intel is committed to building a sustainable future for all.
