The above table shows the report of Greenhouse Gas Emission program done by Intel In year 2017. According to the report, by year 2030 the IPCC will be reduced from 4 million metric tonnes of CO2E.
Reduce direct GHG emissions by 10% on a per unit basis by 2020 from 2010 levels.
In 2017, our direct GHG emissions decreased 20% on an intensity basis, and we are on track to meet our 2020 goal.
Per unit is based on the number of die produced and made available for sale. 
Grow the installation and use of on-site alternative energy to three times our 2015 levels, continue 100% green power in our U.S. operations, and increase renewable energy use for our non-U.S. operations by 2020.
Since 2015, we have doubled the number of completed on-site renewable and alternative energy projects. We continued our 100% green power purchase commitment for the U.S. and increased renewable energy use for our European operations from 0% in 2015 to 100% in 2017. Intel is currently the largest private corporate purchaser of green power in Ireland. 
Increase the energy efficiency of notebook computers and data center server products 25x by 2020 from 2010 levels.1
Our Progress: On track (data center server products), at risk (notebook computers)
Intel continues to lead the industry in maximizing the productivity and energy efficiency of data center server products. Our data center server products are on track to meet our 2020 energy efficiency targets, and are currently 8x more efficient than 2010 volume servers. For notebook computers, we introduced 4-core mainstream processors to meet market requirements for additional performance without increasing system energy consumption. While we will continue to track our progress on the data center component of this goal, we are currently evaluating alternate options for the notebook metric to focus on our processors energy efficiency rather than the finished PC system due to the diversity of form factors and system-level features found in the PC market. Client desktop computing continues to be an important PC market segment and as such, we have broadened our energy efficiency efforts to include meeting California Energy Commission Energy Efficiency Standard2 requirements for computers ahead of the January 1, 2019 effective date. 
Reduce water use on a per unit basis below 2010 level by 2020.
In 2016, we lowered our reporting threshold, which added 14 sites into our 2017 inventory, as compared to our 2010 baseline year inventory. Comparing only to baseline sites, our normalized water usage decreased by 10% from 2010. 
Restore 100% of our global water use by 2025.
Since we announced this goal in 2017, Intel has funded projects benefiting Arizona, California, and Oregon watersheds. Our 2017 water restoration goal is based on restoring an equivalent amount of water to what Intel consumes, which was approximately 2 billion gallons in 2016. Work to implement these projects is underway, and based on the anticipated volumetric benefits upon completion, as of the end of 2017, we had achieved approximately 18% of our global restoration goal, with our total water restored at approximately 84%. This goal will be evaluated each year to adjust for changes in our water consumption. Our goal of restoring 100% of our water use will be achieved when our direct return (i.e., discharge) and restoration projects funded by Intel are equal to our water withdrawals. 
Achieve zero hazardous waste to landfill by 2020.
Intel defines zero hazardous waste to landfill as less than 1%. In 2017, we sent 3% of our hazardous waste to landfill, an increase from 2016 primarily due to sulfuric acid being sent to landfill as we await vendor technology to reclaim it. 
Achieve a 90% non-hazardous waste recycle rate by 2020.
We recycled 85% of our non-hazardous waste in 2017. Fifteen of our sites have achieved recycling rates of 90% or better. We are sharing best practices across Intel to raise our recycling rates and achieve our 2020 recycling goal. 
Design all new buildings to a minimum LEED Gold certification between 2015 and 2020.
We continue to design our new buildings in line with our goal. Weve achieved LEED certification for more than 15.4 million square feet of space in 46 buildings, or approximately 25% of our total operational space.
