Environmental SustainabilityADI and its employees are committed to protecting the environment and the health & safety of fellow employees, customers, and the public.
Usage and Intensity
Purchased electricity and fuel (diesel-natural gas-liquified petroleum gas), ADI’s main energy usage sources, showed a 2% decrease in 2017, with a 7% decrease in energy intensity, both from the 2015 baseline year.
Lighting upgrades, Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) installation, and water pump replacement projects in 2017 resulted in more than 7 million kWhr savings. These electricity use reduction initiatives led to an overall positive performance on normalized electricity use, both at our wafer fabrication sites and assembly and test sites.
Our Ireland and Philippines manufacturing sites began using renewable energy in 2016 and 2017 respectively, resulting in less dependency on non-renewable energy sources and an increased commitment toward environment-friendly, renewable energy sources.
