Texas Instruments has published its ninth annual Corporate Citizenship Report (CCR) online, outlining the company’s social and environmental performance for 2014.
“Every day, TIers around the world are doing what’s right, challenging the impossible, and making our communities stronger,” said Rich Templeton, TI Chairman, President and CEO, in the report’s opening letter.
Highlights of TI’s 2014 performance include:
- Delivering development programs to our early career professionals, leaders and experienced engineers that one-third of our overall workforce attended.
- Assessing the environmental footprint of a TI semiconductor chip, which revealed an annual improvement in energy consumption and operating efficiency of 7 percent or more on average since 2005.
- Implementing 269 energy- and water-efficiency projects, resulting in annualized savings of $10.3 million.
- Assessing 157 suppliers, representing 80 percent of TI’s major production spend, on their environmental and social responsibility programs, and found that our supply chain is relatively low risk.
- Contributing more than 93,000 volunteer hours and almost $32 million in philanthropic and employee giving.
“Being a good employer, business partner and corporate citizen is important to TI and all of our stakeholders,” said Trisha Cunningham, TI’s Chief Citizenship Officer. “The report details how TI is engineering a better tomorrow by engaging people, supporting communities and innovating solutions for our customers and the world.”
