65 2021-22 Corporate Responsibility Report Sustainable: Our Approach Through conservation, strong collaborations, and application of technology, we have long worked to reduce the environmental impact of our operations. We have also partnered with governments, other companies, our suppliers, and nonprofits to help others reduce their own environmental impacts. Our 2030 RISE goals help answer the call for even more urgent action by expanding our efforts to achieve carbon neutral computing to further address climate change. Our 2030 goals include achieving net positive water, 100% renewable electricity, zero waste to landfill, and further reduction in our absolute greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, even as we continue to expand our manufacturing capacity. Additionally, building on our 2030 goals, we recently announced our commitment to achieve net zero GHG for Scope 1 and 2, by 2040. Our strategy also includes creating a collective approach to reduce GHG emissions across the semiconductor industry, and increasing the use of technology to reduce climate impact. To achieve our 2030 sustainable chem - istry technology industry initiative, we have developed a unique methodology to calculate our manufacturing chemical footprint, which will be instrumental in helping us identify projects to soften that footprint. We recognize that solving the world’s environmental challenges requires broad, collective action—action that starts with individuals. For that reason, we have long encouraged our employees’ passion for the environment by supporting sustainability projects within the company, with customers and our local communities. Since 2008, we have also linked executive and employee compensation to corporate responsibility factors, including sustainability metrics related to energy and water conservation, waste reduction, and water restoration.  We also seek to inspire others to create technology-based sustainability solutions. For example, Intel is the headline sponsor for InnovateFPGA , a global design contest that invites teams of students, makers, or engineers to develop field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based solutions that reduce environmental impact. To learn more, see “ C ollaborating for Technology Impact “ in the Enabling section of this report. We believe that Intel’s position in the technology ecosystem, our wide range of technology, and the passion and expertise of our employees will enable us to form crit - ical partnerships, develop new approaches, and make significant progress over the next decade and beyond. Our commitment to renewable electricity includes an array of wind micro-turbines atop Intel's worldwide headquarters in Santa Clara, California. 2030 RISE: Sustainable Goals, Initiatives, and Global Challenges Global Challenge: Achieve carbon neutral computing to address climate change.
