At Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), the direct sources (i.e., Scope 1) of energy we use to support our operations are diesel fuel and natural gas. We also have indirect energy consumption (i.e., Scope 2) through our use of local public utility supply.
We have a number of programs to manage the use of energy at our facilities. These programs include our efforts to save energy with conservation and efficiency improvements in our operations, transportation, and office buildings.
|Energy Use||5% reduction from 2010 baseline||On Target|
Specific Actions / Projects
The largest use of energy is through the use of our manufacturing tools. We require all newly purchased manufacturing tools and equipment to meet minimum criteria for utilities consumption efficiency. In addition, our EH&S and Facilities Departments monitor and evaluate industry developments for continual improvements to efficiency of energy utilization. Our process equipment upgrades have resulted in more efficient use of energy even with continued growth of production. These improvements are expected to continue.
As shown below, our use of energy, as measured in kilowatt-hours, has trended downward. Although our 2011 total increased as production levels increased, the total remained well below our prior years and when our use is measured relative to our production output (i.e., normalized) we demonstrate continued improvements in efficiency of energy use even with increased production.
