IT@Intel White Paper Intel Information Technology Sustainability September 2009

Establishing Baseline Measurements and a Roadmap for IT Sustainability Using the data from our model and our roadmap, we have been able to influence Intel IT’s CO2 reduction and avoidance actions in the right direction by reducing energy consumption, developing innovative sustainable solutions, and empowering sustainability. Bill Guyon IT Measurement Systems Progra...m Manager, Intel IT Guillermo Rueda IT Sustainability Measurements Enterprise Architect, Intel IT Charlie Sheridan Sustainable Computing Innovation and Research Engineer, Intel IT Executive Overview To help Intel consume fewer energy-related resources and produce less waste, Intel IT is executing a sustainability strategy based on our Sustainability Baseline Model, a tool developed in-house that quantitatively measures and predicts the environmental impact of key changes related to IT. Our goal is to reduce Intel IT’s carbon emissions by five percent for 2009 compared to the 2008 baseline. We used our model to calculate our current carbon dioxide (CO ) footprint and 2 to perform “what-if” analyses to help identify projects with the greatest impact and value related to reducing CO emissions. 2 We are also implementing a three-phase roadmap that will guide efforts to reduce our carbon dioxide footprint: • Phase 1. Focuses on baseline sustainability projects with measurable energy reductions in 2009 and beyond. • Phase 2. Features innovative proofs of concept that can demonstrate further additional energy reductions through 2010. • Phase 3. Involves proliferation along with research and development, with a focus on using IT to help reduce Intel’s carbon footprint in general. This roadmap helps us maintain our focus and balance our sustainability efforts with business demands. Using the data from our model and our roadmap, we have been able to influence Intel IT’s CO reduction and avoidance 2 actions in the right direction by reducing energy consumption, developing innovative sustainable solutions, and empowering sustainability.

Business Challenge Environmental concerns appear daily in media headlines, and legislation and regulations addressing carbon emissions are growing across the globe. Intel is proactively addressing these concerns by establishing a corporate goal of reducing Intel’s absolute global- warming gas footprint by 20 percent by 1 2012 from 2007 levels.
