AMD’s 22nd Annual Corporate Responsibility Update
At AMD, we are at our best when we are bringing great products to market. We create high-performance semiconductor solutions that are designed to help solve some of the world’s toughest challenges. This is our driving motivation – to enable the world’s creators, researchers, inventors, and explorers to transform the lives of those around them through immersive and instinctive computing.
-Dr. Lisa Su, President and CEO
AMD hired SustainAbility to support the company in updating its biennial materiality assessment to identify and prioritize environmental and social issues for its business and stakeholders. This issue prioritization project helped AMD refine its strategic focus and resource allocation, build a foundation for an updated strategy, and communicate effectively with key stakeholders.

- AMD procured 28,611 MWh of Green-E certified renewable energy credits (wind) in 2016, and used a total of 124,493 MWh of electricity, therefore 23% of energy sources was from renewables. Home equivalent is estimated by EPA’s Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator - https://www.epa.gov/energy/greenhouse-gas-equivalencies-calculator
- On April 29, 2016, AMD and Nantong Fujitsu Microelectronics Co., Ltd. (TFME) closed a semiconductor joint venture that gave TFME operational control of AMD’s assembly, test, mark and pack (ATMP) manufacturing facilities in Penang, Malaysia and Suzhou, China, including approximately 1,700 employees and management team members.
- In 2016 there was a one-time disposal of non-operational waste of 966 tons of non-hazardous soil and water from AMD Superfund sites in California. The one-time disposal of non-operational waste is not included in the diversion rate.
- AMD Foundation giving was largely suspended in 2013 due to business conditions. We have increased emphasis on donating the time and talents of our employees to continue to support local communities. A modest financial giving plan resumed in 2016.
- “Manufacturing suppliers” includes suppliers who contribute materials that directly impact and become a part of AMD products.
- The Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) provides its members with a risk assessment template that they may use called the Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ)
