Life cycle assessments

We have been working to provide life cycle assessment (LCA) data of our technologies to help customers conduct their own LCAs. Like other semiconductor companies, TI has thousands of products, which makes it too cumbersome to conduct LCAs on each. Moreover, much of this information is proprietary.

However, we have averaged the amount of water, energy and other materials needed to produce a representative device and have shared that information with our customers. We will continue working with our industry counterparts to determine a more optimal way to calculate such information.
