$100 million invested. 34 billion gallons saved. What’s next?

waterpic.jpgConserving natural resources – including water – is something that we’ve focused on Intel at for many years now. While we’ve achieved significant savings in water through investments in conservation activities over the past decade, we know we need to still push ourselves to do more and also partner with others to address this global issue, that is also at it’s heart a local issue. So we continue to look for new and innovative ways to reduce the amount of fresh water required in our operations – from using reclaimed wastewater in cooling towers, to putting in place xeriscaping on our campuses, to redesigning manufacturing processes – but we’ve also collaborated with other organizations such as the City of Chandler in Arizona. To learn more, check out a recent interview with Tom Cooper, Intel’s corporate water programs manager by Roberto Michel of Business Manufacturing Technology.
