Throughout the year, we worked to further engage, educate and inspire employees to help TI progress its sustainability journey. This included the launch of a global, year-long communications campaign to educate employees on what sustainability is, what it means to the company, what we intend to achieve, and how each individual can help TI become a more sustainable company. The campaign included:
Other activities that helped progress sustainability at TI included:
- Animated videos.
- Articles on sustainable goals, educational opportunities, performance recognition and calls for involvement.
- An online forum through TI's intranet, Infolink, for employees to ask questions, make suggestions and pledge how they will behave more sustainably at work and home.
- Continued work toward our five-year energy, water and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions per-chip reduction goals. Although our performance declined in each of the areas due to the ramp up of new facilities and a decline in production (which impacts efficiency), we made strides in identifying best practices and working to implement them at TI sites globally.
- Evaluating the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition's (EICC) code of conduct, which provides guidance in five critical areas of corporate performance:
- Health and safety.
- Management system.
In 2012, TI plans to:
- Formally adopt the EICC code of conduct.
- Continue communications efforts to engage and encourage employees to help TI achieve its sustainability goals.
- Invest in processes that further reduce energy, water and GHG emissions and associated costs.
