Intel has a long-standing commitment to corporate responsibility. We set ambitious goals and make strategic investments to drive improvements in environmental sustainability, supply chain responsibility, diversity and inclusion, and social impact.


Environmental Sustainability
37B KwH of Green Power

Since 2008, Intel’s renewable energy supply and renewable energy attribute purchases have totaled approximately 37 billion kWh of green power, enough to power more than 3 million U.S. households for one year, including 5.5 billion kWh in 2019.


Supply Chain Responsibility
$15M in Fees Returned

To prevent forced and bonded labor, we set expectations with our suppliers that workers should not have to pay for their employment. As a result, we have remediated the return of over $15 million in fees to suppliers' workers and we have identified an additional $10 million in fees to be returned in 2020.


Diversity and Inclusion

$1B Annual Spending with Diverse-Owned Businesses

We achieved our 2020 goal to spend $1 billion annually with diverse-owned suppliers, including our goal to reach $200 million in spending on women-owned suppliers globally.


Social Impact

17M volunteer hours

2020 marks the silver anniversary of Intel Involved, Intel's global corporate volunteer program. Since the program started in 1995, employees and retirees have logged over 17 million hours of service, including 1.2 million in 2019.

Intel has a well-developed internship program serving thousands of students who are preparing for real careers outside of college. Our goal is to provide real-world, thought-provoking internships to undergraduate and graduate-level students. Historically, more than 50 percent of our interns go on to accept full-time opportunities with Intel after graduation. There is no better way to learn than to experience things first-hand. Our internships offer students a chance to get real-world experience with ownership of projects from day one, as well as the opportunity to develop a network of contacts for their future. Intel managers encourage students to take the initiative and develop programs that meet their particular interests.

    Top of the line Company. Really cares about their employees. It is a challenging occupation. The people I have worked with during my career really care about each other. That culture permeates through the whole company.


    Can be stressful at times.
