Intel takes green view for future blueprint

INTEL Corp aims to cut carbon emissions by 20 percent in China in 2012 from the level of 2007 through major restructuring, the world's biggest chip maker said yesterday.

The environmentally friendly policy was one of the company's long-term strategies, said Shelly Esque, Intel's vice president of legal and corporate affairs.

"It doesn't conflict between environmental protection and Intel's development and interests," Esque said in Intel's Shanghai office.

Besides environmental protection, Intel has invested heavily on education and community services in China, already spending US$4.7 billion in the nation.

It recently relocated a Shanghai-based chip assembly plant and test facility to a plant in Chengdu in southwest China's Sichuan Province.

This initiative helped the firm cut carbon emissions on production and transportation. Intel Shanghai now focuses on research and development.

Intel invested US$2.5 billion to build a wafer plant in Dalian in northeastern China's Liaoning Province and regards it as its most advanced plant in Asia, with the highest standards in energy efficiency and environmental protection, according to Ge Jun, Intel China's director.

Intel aims to train 1.6 million teachers in primary and middle schools in China by 2010. The firm has already provided training for 1.5 million teachers in the nation.
