How Intel evolves its reporting strategy so it’s meaningful to investors, customers and employees
By Suzanne Fallender
In the two decades that Intel has been releasing environmental and corporate social responsibility (CSR) reports, the CSR reporting landscape has changed dramatically. Once a topic reserved for specialists, today 85% of S&P 500 companies1 regularly publish CSR reports and many reporters cover CSR for major media organizations.
Today, Intel released its latest CSR report, highlighting the progress made over the past year toward our 2020 goals. But do these reports really matter?
Sustainable and socially responsible investing now represents $1 in every $4 under professional management. As this type of investing becomes increasingly mainstream, companies around the world are scrambling to make environmental, social and governance (ESG) data available to investors so they can be included in ESG-focused portfolios.
Some firms, however, are already ahead of the game. In a 2018 report, Morgan Stanley called out big names like Campbell Soup, Microsoft and Intel as “first mover companies that are already capitalizing on investor interest in ESG.”
CR Magazine published their 2019 100 Best Corporate Citizens list and Intel was ranked No. 2, up from their No. 4 ranking in 2018. This year is the 20th anniversary of the 100 Best Corporate Citizens list, which recognizes the standout environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance of public companies across the United States. Intel is one of very few companies that have been included on this list since its inception, demonstrating its consistency in providing excellence in corporate responsibility and sustainability.
Diversity Inc. published their Top 50 Companies list and Intel was included as No. 50, after having been included as a Noteworthy Company last year. The Diversity Inc. Top 50 list is derived exclusively from corporate survey submissions and companies are evaluated within the context of their own industries.

Much of the island’s infrastructure was completely destroyed – including their electricity grid and their communications infrastructure. Three months later, five Intel employees traveled to the Mayagüez region of the island to assess hurricane damage at the local schools.
