2012 performance

TI continued improving building efficiencies in 2012. Key highlights for the year included:
  • Conducting energy/water assessments at two manufacturing facilities in Malaysia, as well as facilities in Maine and Scotland. In addition, we assessed a large office complex in Santa Clara, Calif.
  • Beginning the design of a new office building in Sugar Land, Texas, which is registered with the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)-New Construction building standards.
  • Assessing the top five best practices in water and energy for 22 sites around the world. There were a total of 820 best practices reviewed across a number of systems.
  • Ramping down production at two older, less-efficient manufacturing sites and transferring products to more efficient facilities.


  • Since 2005, the efficiency investments TI has made, primarily in existing buildings, have cumulatively reduced utility costs (including electricity and water) by about $40 million. These efforts allowed us to reduce the energy and water required to manufacture a chip by more than 5 percent per year over that period.

Looking ahead

In 2013, we plan to:
  • Complete 75 percent of our new LEED-registered office building in Sugar Land, Texas.
  • Install electric vehicle charging stations at many Texas employee parking lots.
  • Continue to use assessments and share best practices to improve our site operations globally.
