Texas Instruments announced new environmental sustainability targets that expand the company’s use of renewable electricity over the next six years, with key milestones to reach 100% in its 300mm manufacturing operations by 2025, 100% in its U.S. operations by 2027, and 100% in its worldwide operations by 2030. 

As the company expands its internal manufacturing capacity to support customer demand, these goals will ensure that TI’s industry-leading 300mm wafer fabs, as well as its newest assembly and test sites, will be entirely powered by renewable electricity. 

“Our semiconductors play a critcal role in helping our customers developer smaller, more efficient and affordable technology that makes electrification, renewable energy and energy storage systems possible,” said Heidi Means, TI’s vice president of Worldwide Environmental, Safety and Health. “These short- and medium-term energy goals will continue TI’s positive trajectory to reduce our environmental impact while we continue to expand our manufacturing capacity to support our customers.”

TI has steadily grown its use of renewable electricity from a combination of sources including onsite solar and power purchase agreements (PPAs). Since 2020, the company has:

  • Continued to increase its absolute use of renewable electricity annually.
  • Shifted its operations in the Philippines, which includes two assembly and test sites, to 100% renewable electricity.
  • Invested in the company’s first onsite, rooftop solar installation at its Bangalore, India, site.
  • Started receiving more than 65MW of renewable electricity from its long-term PPA investments in wind and solar energy projects in North Texas.
