Intel unveils plan to cut Chinese emissions

INTEL Corp aims to cut carbon emissions by 20 percent in China in 2012 from 2007 levels, through restructuring and investment in product design and work processes, the world's biggest chip maker said today.

Intel won't take part in worldwide carbon trading but put its environmentally friendly policy in place as a key long-term strategy, said Shelly Esque, Intel's vice president of legal and corporate affairs.

"There is no conflict between environmentalal protection and Intel's development and interests," Esque said in Intel's Shanghai office.

Besides environmental protection, Intel has invested heavily in education and community in China, so far investing US$4.7 billion in the nation.

It has recently moved a Shanghai-based chip assembly and testing factory to an existing plant in Chengdu city in West China, which helped the company to cut carbon emissions in production and transport.

Intel, which has invested US$2.5 billion to build a wafer plant in Dalian city as its most advanced plant in Asia, has set the company's highest standard on energy efficiency and environment protection, said Ge Jun, Intel China's director.

Meanwhile, Intel aims to train 1.6 million teachers in primary and middle schools by 2010 in China. At present, Intel has aided the training of 1.5 million teachers in China, according to Esque.
