Businesses and organizations everywhere are rushing to “go green”. Many are making commitments to become “carbon neutral” or at least substantially reduce their direct and indirect carbon emissions, due to concerns about global warming. A legitimate and well designed carbon reduction program should include a range of elements, including energy efficiency, direct emissions reductions, clean energy, and other innovative technologies. This paper will look at the carbon reduction efforts of Intel Corporation, which is a member of several influential climate programs and has met aggressive goals to reduce its carbon footprint. The paper will explain the actions taken across the range of climate impact areas, as well as discuss future opportunities
