Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) Wins Environmental Award

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Monday announced that Advanced Micro Devices Inc. won a Climate Protection Award “in recognition of its continued commitment to protecting the global climate through energy-efficient product innovation, facility design and management, and industry education.”

Sunnyvale-based AMD is a charter member of the EPA’s Climate Leaders Partnership and a founding member of The Green Grid.

“AMD is honored to receive this prestigious award from the EPA, and I am proud to lead a company that recognizes its responsibility to minimize our impact on the global climate,” said Dirk Meyer, AMD’s president and COO. “We have worked tirelessly for more than a decade to reduce our environmental impact across all facets of our business — from the design and production of our technology to the amount and sources of the energy we use at our facilities around the world.”

AMD is being recognized for the following achievements:

* Reducing corporate-wide normalized emissions of greenhouse gases by more than 50 percent;
* Helping other companies minimize their energy-consumption and greenhouse gas emissions through industry leading energy-efficient products;
