Sustainable sites

TI's manufacturing and office buildings are more than just a place to work. They serve as a common space for collaboration and incubators for new ideas and new technology.

How we build and operate these facilities is an integral part of our current and long-term sustainability. In fact, we successfully constructed the world's first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design-certified semiconductor manufacturing facility.

According to the U.S. Green Building Council, U.S. residential and commercial building construction and operation consumes 73 percent of electricity, 41 percent of primary energy (oil, natural gas), 40 percent of raw materials, 14 percent of potable water, and generates 38 percent of carbon dioxide emissions. It is our goal to continue to reduce the resource consumption and environmental impact of our buildings.
