― Annu­al update high­lights pro­gress on envi­ron­men­tal, social and com­mu­ni­ty initia­ti­ves ―
SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today announ­ced its 25th annu­al cor­po­ra­te citi­zenship update, pro­vi­ding a trans­pa­rent view of the company’s cor­po­ra­te respon­si­bi­li­ty initia­ti­ves. This year’s update high­lights how AMD and its tech­no­lo­gies are addres­sing sus­tainab­le tech­no­lo­gi­cal and sci­en­ti­fic advan­ce­ment, envi­ron­men­tal and sup­ply chain respon­si­bi­li­ty, work­place inclu­si­on and belon­ging, and com­mu­ni­ty support.

We com­ple­te twen­ty-five years of sus­taina­bi­li­ty repor­ting reco­gni­zing the role that semi­con­duc­tors con­tri­bu­te in hel­ping sol­ve many of the com­plex chal­len­ges our world faces,” said Sus­an Moo­re, cor­po­ra­te vice pre­si­dent of inter­na­tio­nal government affairs and cor­po­ra­te respon­si­bi­li­ty at AMD. “As we navi­ga­te this chan­ging world, fue­led by the resi­li­en­ce of our employees, com­mu­nities and cus­to­mers, AMD remains focu­sed on respon­si­b­ly deli­vering high-per­for­mance tech­no­lo­gy that hel­ps us achie­ve more together.”

Pur­po­se-Built Technology
AMD is com­mit­ted to deve­lo­ping and deploy­ing its high-per­for­mance tech­no­lo­gy to enab­le a bet­ter and more sus­tainab­le world. In 2020, AMD excee­ded its six-year goal to deli­ver an unpre­ce­den­ted 25 times ener­gy effi­ci­en­cy impro­ve­ment in its mobi­le pro­ces­sors. The new AMD Ryzen™ 7 4800H is 31.7 times more ener­gy effi­ci­ent than the base­li­ne metric, far sur­pas­sing the award-win­ning 25x20 Ener­gy Effi­ci­en­cy goal set in 2014.

In respon­se to the COVID-19 pan­de­mic, AMD announ­ced the AMD COVID-19 High-Per­for­mance Com­pu­ting (HPC) Fund to pro­vi­de rese­arch enti­ties with com­pu­ting resour­ces powe­red by AMD EPYC™ ser­vers and AMD Rade­on Instinct™ GPUs to acce­le­ra­te medi­cal rese­arch about COVID-19 and other dise­a­ses. Addi­tio­nal­ly, AMD is sup­por­ting orga­niz­a­ti­ons deli­vering medi­cal ser­vices and huma­ni­ta­ri­an reli­ef world­wi­de, con­tri­bu­ting more than $1.2 mil­li­on USD in grants, to date, and hund­reds of thousands of per­so­nal pro­tec­ti­ve equipment.
Ope­ra­ting Responsibly
AMD extends its com­mit­ment to trans­pa­rent repor­ting throughout its ope­ra­ti­ons and sup­ply chain. AMD values envi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion and is cur­r­ent­ly ahead of tar­get for its 2014–2020 green­house gas (GHG) reduc­tion goals appro­ved by the Sci­ence Based Tar­gets initiative.

AMD also incre­a­sed sup­ply chain respon­si­bi­li­ty efforts, enga­ging with 100 per­cent of direct sup­pliers and con­duc­ting addi­tio­nal sup­plier audits, with a focus on ensu­ring all workers are trea­ted with respect and that working con­di­ti­ons are safe.

Streng­t­he­ning Communities
AMD is dedi­ca­ted to posi­tively impac­ting the com­mu­nities in which it ope­ra­tes, with a focus on sci­ence, tech­no­lo­gy, engi­nee­ring and math (STEM)-related initia­ti­ves. Through AMD part­ners­hips with edu­ca­tio­nal orga­niz­a­ti­ons around the world, more than 1,000 stu­dents and tea­chers are lear­ning in labs powe­red by the latest genera­ti­on of AMD CPUs and GPUs, with ongo­ing enga­ge­ment from employee volunteers.

AMD employees regu­lar­ly share their time and talents in com­mu­ni­ty enga­ge­ment. In 2019, they dro­ve a 10 per­cent year-over-year incre­a­se in com­pa­ny-spon­so­red vol­un­tee­rism to sup­port the needs of AMD com­mu­nities span­ning STEM edu­ca­ti­on, meal pre­pa­ra­ti­on, park clean-ups and more.

Empowe­ring People
AMD fos­ters a cul­tu­re of inclu­si­on and belon­ging to enab­le employees to do their best work. In 2019, AMD expan­ded its Employee Resour­ce Group (ERG) pro­gram with five new groups and eight new site chap­ters of exis­ting ERGs, empowe­ring employees with more ways to cele­bra­te their diver­si­ty and sup­port each other.

Ali­gned with the company’s com­mit­ment to diver­si­ty and inclu­si­on and in light of recent events that high­light the work still ahead to end racism and social injus­ti­ce, AMD announ­ced its first steps to cul­ti­va­te chan­ge with dona­ti­ons to high-impact non-pro­fits focu­sed on social and racial equa­li­ty and sup­port for their empower­ment, scho­l­ar­s­hip and men­tor­s­hip pro­grams. AMD is com­mit­ted to hel­ping its employees and com­mu­nities effect sys­temic and las­ting change.

Demons­tra­ting its com­mit­ment to envi­ron­men­tal, social and work­place pro­gress, AMD con­ti­nues its track record of com­pa­ny reco­gni­ti­on with fea­tures on this year’s Best 100 Cor­po­ra­te Citi­zens list, For­bes and JUST Capi­tal JUST 100 ran­king, Bloom­berg Gen­der-Equa­li­ty Index, and Human Rights Cam­pai­gn Foun­da­ti­on Cor­po­ra­te Equa­li­ty Index.
