TI strives to be transparent about how our people, operations and innovative products are making a positive impact in our communities and our world. That’s why TI has participated in the Business Roundtable Sustainability Report for the 6th consecutive year.

This year’s report, “Create, Grow, Sustain: People and Technology at Work,” features narratives from 133 CEOs on how their companies have contributed to sustainable economic growth and a cleaner environment. Across the board, America’s business community has reduced greenhouse gas emissions, improved energy efficiency, conserved water, cut waste and protected the environment.  

“At TI, we’re engineering a better tomorrow,” said Rich Templeton, TI chairman, president and CEO. “We are changing the world from how we design and manufacture breakthrough semiconductor technologies to the human capital investments we’re making in the next generation of responsible engineers.”

The Business Roundtable report highlights the results of the achievements of 133 companies.

As an example of how we are addressing global issues through technology, TI’s power management products can reduce power loss during transmission and conversion, allowing for expanded options in renewable energy and energy-saving improvements in motor and lighting applications.

We continually look for even more ways to use resources responsibly and conserve them for future generations. For example, while in 2015, we set a goal to reduce water usage by 4 percent globally, our global team achieved a 12 percent water use reduction. The amount of water saved is the equivalent of 820 Olympic-sized swimming pools, resulting in $2.5 million saved costs.

Since innovation begins with people, we invest in developing the next generation of big thinkers, doers and problem-solvers for the future technology workforce. Over the past five years, TI has contributed more than $150 million to education and thousands of volunteer hours, with an emphasis on helping underrepresented students be proficient in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

“We’re honored to participate in the Business Roundtable Sustainability Report along with other corporations that are driving high standards in their industries,” said Trisha Cunningham, Chief Citizenship Officer. “Every day, our people live our core values of integrity, innovation and commitment which drive their passion to do what’s right in all our operations and communities for a more sustainable future for all of us.”
