Governance and accountability

The company's vice president of worldwide facilities, who reports directly to the chief financial officer, oversees TI's climate-change initiatives. Our greenhouse gas (GHG) strategy team – comprising internal environmental leaders, government relations staff, air quality, chemistry and energy experts – coordinates and manages these initiatives.

The Audit Committee of our board of directors oversees environmental compliance efforts and risk assessment processes. Where climate-change matters may have significance for TI, these matters are included in reviews to help the Audit Committee fulfill their oversight responsibilities. The GHG strategy team periodically briefs executive managers regarding status and progress.

In addition, employees at all job levels globally are held accountable for compliance with environmental, safety and health requirements. We expect employees to achieve continuous improvement toward objectives and targets appropriate to their function, including GHG reduction goals.
