Intel Corp. asserts that sustainable manufacturing is being implemented across its global operations, including new fabs under construction in Ohio and ramping up in Germany. The chip maker’s net-zero goals include greenhouse gas emissions reductions by 2040, zero landfill wastes by 2030 and “net positive” water usage by 2030.
