英特尔计划到2030年的“净水”

雄心勃勃的可持续发展路线图

今年早些时候微软宣布将是2030年的碳负数。

And now semiconductor king Intel plans a similar move but for water: to achieve net positive water use within the next decade.

作为其新的2030战略和最近出版的公司责任报告的一部分,计算机芯片巨头奠定了一个雄心勃勃的可持续发展道路地图。

This includes using 100 per cent renewable power, sending zero total waste to landfill and additional absolute carbon emissions reductions.

For water, the company had already set out the target of 100 per cent water restoration from its manufacturing activities by 2025.

Now it wants to go one step further.

为实现其新的2030个目标,英特尔将需要在十年结束时增加300亿加仑的“纪录高水平”。这也需要包括资助外部水恢复项目。

“We also will go beyond the aspirations of or existing 2025 water restoration goal in order to achieve net positive water use by 2030, including funding projects in water-stressed areas,” the report said.

On-site water reclamation

半导体制造业是一种非常激烈的业务。

Intel has been credited for its water-restoration efforts, coming in fourth place on Fortune’s Change the World Sustainability All-Stars list last year.

Since 2000, the company reported it had exceeded its goal to reduce water use below 2010 levels on an intensity basis, achieving a 38 per cent decrease.

Added to which, in partnership with environmental non-profit organisations, it restored one billion gallons of water to local watersheds.

作为公司恢复其全球水资源100%的一部分,英特尔于2019年实施了各种水资源保护项目。

这包括在以色列Qiryat Gat的工厂完成其现有的水回收设施的扩展,以及开始猖獗的最新在山区Ronler Acres工厂的回收设施, Oregon.

此外,它还表示,它对亚利桑那州南瓜德拉德州Ocotillo工厂建造了新的水回收设施的进展。

据说这些水收恢复设施导致2018年至2019年以色列45%以上的储蓄总储蓄和俄勒冈州30%。

In 2019, a team of engineers at Intel’s Dalian fabrication facility in China completed a project to help reclaim water for use in the cooling towers.

英特尔估计该系统将导致每年重用约1.45亿加仑的水。

供应商环境影响

Intel also sent the CDP water questionnaire to 46 suppliers that are located in water-stressed regions.

该公司报告达到了100%的响应率,其中46个供应商的93%公开分享他们的反应。

With the company unveiling plans that would include enabling sensor technology to reduce power usage, partnering with material vendors on recyclable packaging and developing longer-term, energy-efficient architectures, it has laid out an ambitious sustainability road-map for the next decade.

Last year, the company opened its smartest, LEED Platinum building in Petah Tikva, Israel. The building is also reported to use approximately 75 per cent less water than the average office.

包容性可持续发展实践

Bob Swan, Intel Corporation’s chief executive officer, said: “We are committing to accelerate the adoption of responsible, inclusive, and sustainable practices in key areas in our operations and supply chain, and across the technology industry and society.”

首席执行官表示,碳中性计算的挑战需要让客户涉及其客户。

“我们还将与客户和其他人一起承担挑战,通过提高产品能源效率和可持续设计来实现碳中性计算 - 以及技术解决方案的应用减少高影响行业排放量的增加。”

企业主管苏珊娜Fallender responsibility, Intel Corporation added that the organisation would launch “collaborative initiatives to drive additional carbon emissions reductions and sustainable chemistry practices across our industry”.
