Intel Named to 2007-08 Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes for Ninth Straight Year
Only U.S.-based Company Named ’Supersector Leader’
SANTA CLARA, Calif.– For the ninth straight year, Intel Corporation has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI), a recognition it has received every year since the Indexes were created. The DJSI reviews and highlights a company’s economic, environmental and social performance, assessing issues such as corporate governance, risk management, branding, climate change, supply chain standards and labor practices.
A report highlighting Intel’s inclusion noted that the company “has again confirmed its sustainability leadership position within the technology sector.”
Intel received sector-leading scores in a number of criteria including innovation R&D, stakeholder engagement, supplier standards, human capital development and environmental reporting.
Intel was also named, for the seventh consecutive year, the Supersector Leader for Technology – the only U.S.-based company named to the list of 18 Supersector Leaders. The Technology Supersector encompasses companies in software, computer services, Internet, communications, semiconductors, hardware and office equipment.
Launched in 1999, the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes are the first global indices tracking the financial performance of leading sustainability-driven companies worldwide. The assessment covers economic, environmental and social driving forces and trends.
“At Intel, we define success by both our business performance and how we achieve it. We are honored to be recognized for our efforts to do business in the most ethical, transparent and sustainable way possible,” said Will Swope, Intel vice president and general manager, Corporate Affairs Group.
Since its founding, Intel has aimed to succeed in ways that honor its values -- respecting individuals, communities and the planet. Its standing as a responsible corporate citizen is important to the company -- which designs and makes energy-efficient products -- not only to meet the needs of its customers, but also because they reduce its environmental footprint. Each of these priorities is combined in one of its key corporate values: to “be an asset to our communities worldwide.”
