What's Fairchild doing to reduce energy consumption?

  • Installed variable speed motors, shut off equipment when not in use, timers on lights, utilize on-demand heating and cooling, modified temperature sensors in office buildings, installed sky lights, installed CFL/LFL light bulbs in buildings
  • Using 1000 blocks of 100kwh per month of wind energy at our Utah facility
  • Philippines site reduced energy consumption by 40.8 percent from 1998 – 2007
  • Internet Technology/Servers
    • Replacing and consolidating servers as their serviceable life ends with newer, smaller and more energy-efficient servers
    • Reduced power consumption by 43 percent between 2004 to 2007
  • Water usage
    • Monitor and record the rates of water usage on a site-by-site basis
    • Reduced water usage by over 53 million gallons from 2000 through 2007
  • Recycled non-hazardous material
    • 2000 through 2007 = 38,676 tons
