NVIDIA recently released its 2016 Sustainability Report, the company’s seventh report on its environmental, social, and governance progress. This latest update highlights how NVIDIA’s central technology, the Graphics Processing Unit, or GPU, advances demanding and socially-beneficial technologies. The report describes how GPUs help supercomputers model diseases, self-driving cars interpret roads, and virtual reality create entirely new forms of media and communication.
Because of NVIDIA’s performance related to corporate responsibility, multiple organizations have recognized the company’s ESG leadership, including:
- CR Magazine adding NVIDIA to the “100 Best Corporate Citizens”
- Newsweek ranking NVIDIA fourth in its Green Rankings of US companies
- scoring a 98 out of 100 on the company’s CDP disclosure, demonstrating its leadership in climate action and emissions
- remaining a member of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index
To continue its progress, NVIDIA has set several goals for the coming year. This includes ranking suppliers based on the company’s criteria for conflict minerals due diligence and EICC Code of Conduct, conducting unconscious-bias training with executives, and continuing to implement projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Framework LLC conducted a materiality analysis and supported development of NVIDIA’s report at the GRI G4 Core “In Accordance” level.
