ATMP Normalized Water Use
Non-Manufacturing Normalized Water Use
At our non-manufacturing facilities, our 2014 water use reduction goal is 20% per employee. In 2011, water use per employee decreased by 14.9% at non-manufacturing sites, largely due to consolidating operations into the more water efficient Lone Star facility, as well as reducing irrigation water use at our Sunnyvale location.
In 2011, AMD announced a goal to reduce normalized water use by 20% from 2009 to 2014. Normalized water use at our ATMP facilities increased by 32.8% from 2009 to 2011. This was largely due to a process change at our Penang, Malaysia facility in 2010 and construction of a new assembly building at our Suzhou, China facility in 2011. Going forward, we are making additional efforts to reduce the rate of water use at these facilities to meet our 2014 goal.
