Intel recognized for strengths in issues affecting communities, the environment and its workers
This morning, Forbes, in partnership with JUST Capital, published their annual ranking of America’s Most Just Companies, also known as The Just 100, a premiere ranking of how corporations perform on the business practices people throughout the U.S. care about most. Intel was included at No. 4 out of 100, making this the third year in a row that Intel has been recognized as a top five company in America. In addition to Intel’s performance on the comprehensive JUST 100 list, the company was also recognized as No. 1 for communities, customers, the environment and shareholders within the Semiconductors & Equipment category, landing at No. 2 overall for the category.
Intel’s high ranking on this list is due to the company’s strengths in issues affecting communities, the environment and its workers. Among its work benefitting communities, Intel has adopted the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights in its own Global Human Rights Principles and received the highest possible score in 2019 from Development International for its compliance with Dodd-Frank conflict mineral disclosure rules. Intel benefits the environment in a variety of ways, including sourcing 100% of energy from renewables in its US and EU operations and actively working towards the company’s goal of restoring 100% of its global water usage by 2025. Finally, Intel finds great strength in its workers, having achieved pay and promotion parity and global gender pay equity in 2018 and continuing to receive high ratings for internal career opportunities.
