Heather Clancy shares AMD’s revised green goals.

“In a blog post on Feb. 14, AMD global sustainability manager Justin Murrill, says that AMD’s new goal for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions is five per cent between 2009 and 2014. That includes Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions. Currently, it is evaluating Scope 3 emissions (the stuff associated with supply chain and business partners), but it hasn’t taken any specific action. Murrill writes: ‘Our strategy for achieving these GHG goals is to first directly reduce our carbon footprint through energy conservation projects and efficiency improvements. As part of this effort, we will enhance our employee engagement program, Go Green, to involve our workforce in conservation efforts. We will also evaluate renewable energy options including generating energy onsite from solar panels, purchasing green energy from utility providers and purchasing renewable energy credits.’”
