Texas Instruments has been recognized in four notable rankings for its leadership in sustainability, including outstanding social, environmental and governance performance.
According to Rich Templeton, TI's chairman, president and CEO, social and environmental stewardship has been a cornerstone of the company’s operations for six decades.
"We’re committed to conducting business responsibly, and we take pride in creating technology that helps to make a better world," Templeton said. “We appreciate the recognition behind these independent rankings.”
Newsweek Green Ranking
TI ranks 34th for environmental performance among the 500 largest U.S. companies in Newsweek magazine's second-annual Green Ranking list.
Companies are ranked based on combined environmental impact and green policy scores (which measure total environmental impact of global operations), as well as a reputation survey score (which measures disclosure of that impact).
What this means is that among U.S. companies and across all sectors, TI is making strides in reducing its environmental impact. The company is successfully using fewer resources and generating less waste in its operations, and those efforts have been recognized.
David Thomas, vice president and manager of Worldwide Facilities, said there is still more work to be done.
"We're constantly looking at how we can reduce our energy and water use and greenhouse gas emissions, how we can increase recycling, and how we can most efficiently obtain, use and dispose of the materials and resources we need for our operations," he said.
"It's important to continue this focus to meet customer and regulatory requirements, maintain our company's reputation, control our costs, and of course, protect the Earth.”
