The report and supporting materials are available on our web site at www.intel.com/go/responsibility.
Environmental performance. Intel is a recognized leader in sustainability for the ways we work to minimize the environmental impacts of our operations, and design products that use less harmful materials and are more energy efficient. We believe that technology is fundamental to finding solutions to the world's environmental challenges. In 2009, for the second year in a row, Intel was named a Green Power Partner of the Year by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in recognition of our multi-year commitment to purchase more than 1.3 billion kilowatt-hours of renewable energy certificates each year, which represents approximately 50% of Intel's annual U.S. electricity use. As part of our effort to further integrate sustainability into the culture at Intel, we continued to include an environmental component in the formula used to determine the payout for employee variable compensation. We also continued to collaborate with others to drive global standards for products and manufacturing that ensure energy-efficient performance. Complete information is available at www.intel.com/go/environment.
Education initiatives. Intel believes that students everywhere deserve the skills needed to succeed in a knowledge-based economy. As part of our efforts to improve teaching and learning through the effective use of technology, and advance math, science, and engineering education, Intel and the Intel Foundation invest approximately $100 million annually in programs around the world—from professional development for teachers to premier science and engineering fairs. In 2009, we reached more than 1 million teachers through the Intel® Teach Program; since its inception in 1999, Intel Teach has reached more than 7 million teachers in over 50 countries.
