Intel has set some plans to reach 100 percent renewable energy use by 2030 with little or no waste at all. Intel had already set some plans to achieve by 2020 and as per the company, it managed to fulfill many of the targets.
As of now, Intel is more concerned about the environment and it is now recycling more than 90 percent of its waste and trash. Furthermore, Intel is no longer sending any hazardous waste to landfills either.
The new plans by Intel aim at using 100 percent renewable energy sources for its electricity use globally. The company is also planning not to send any waste to landfill, instead, the company will try its level best to recycle those.
Since 2010, the amount of greenhouse gas it pumps to the environment has dropped by at least 30 percent. Intel managed to reduce its water consumption by 38 percent.
The company has already managed to save roughly 44 billion gallons of water in the last 10 years alone.
Many other leading tech companies including Dell and Microsoft also have some plans to protect the environment by reducing the pollution emission.
According to some scientists, if the carbon dioxide emission is not brought to almost zero percent by 2050, the Earth might witness some dramatic climate changes.
For last one year alone, the company’s carbon dioxide emissions accounted for 2.79 million metric tons.
As per the new plans, Intel plans to use at least 70% renewable energy for its global electricity consumption in the US and Europe.
Intel is also planning to open new factories in the US as more renewable resources are available in the country. Intel is already in talks with the US Government for the same.
It’s good to see such big companies taking measures to protect the environment and reduce pollution. In the near future, it’s sure that more companies will start taking measures to protect mother nature.
