SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 03 /CSRwire/ - AMD is pleased to present our 16th consecutive corporate responsibility report. This year's report covers some major changes for AMD and sets our future direction for corporate responsibility. Some of our 2010 highlights include:

  • Expanded AMD Changing the Game, to 3,000 kids in 3 countries. This is our signature educational program that teaches STEM skills through the creation of computer games.
  • Developed a new set of aggressive environmental goals.
  • Created a study demonstrating that our new Accelerated Processing Unit, the E-350 APU (a new technology that combines a microprocessor and graphics processor) has a carbon footprint that is up to 40% less than previous AMD technology generations.
  • Aligned our employee volunteerism program with professional development and branded it AMD Community Corps., and increased the number of employee volunteers by 30 percent in the process.
  • Upped our level of disclosure and transparency, achieving an "A" (self-declared) on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) scale.
