When I became CEO and President of AMD this past year, I became part of a company and team with a strong legacy of corporate responsibility brought to life by more than 11,000 dedicated AMDers across the planet. Our employees not only work hard every day to deliver leading computing and graphics solutions, they contribute their own time, money and passion to make the world a better place. This is ingrained as part of our culture, which we call “The AMD Way.”
I am pleased to share our 17th annual corporate responsibility report. In it, you will find numerous examples of AMD employees who go above and beyond to help others and to preserve our environment.
As AMD works throughout 2012 to refocus and reposition the company to capture the opportunities in front of us, we will be unwavering in our commitment to people and the planet. Internally, we will remain committed to our work on diversity and inclusion, ethical business practices and cultivating a supportive, productive work environment. Externally, we will continue to be good neighbors in our communities, protect the environment and ensure that our suppliers meet the same expectations we hold ourselves accountable for while engaging with our stakeholders openly and honestly.
Each year, society’s expectations for corporate responsibility and transparency increase. While AMD has consistently met and exceeded these expectations, we are motivated by more than external influences. We know that corporate responsibility strengthens our business, enriches our culture and helps AMD win.
I hope that you find our 2011 corporate responsibility report informative and valuable. As always, we welcome your input and questions.
AMD CEO and President
