Intel Arizona LEEDS the Way

Innovative technology… Check.

Cutting-edge environment initiatives… Check.

Getting the internationally recognized stamp of approval from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC)… Priceless.

Today, we’re proud to announce that our Ocotillo campus in Arizona was recognized as the first semiconductor or industrial technology company to obtain Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification for a manufacturing campus. The Ocotillo site, including its three generations of wafer fabrication plants, support and office buildings, received LEED silver certification for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance. This reflects the latest in Intel’s ongoing environment initiatives to design all new buildings to a minimum of LEED Silver, and our commitment to making strategic improvements to existing locations.

Check out what Taimur Burki, Intel senior environmental engineer and LEED program manager has to say about why this LEED certification is a big deal for Intel.
