How Intel Is Advancing Respect for Human Rights

Monday, December 9, 2019 - 2:15pm


On Human Rights Day and beyond, Intel is committed to advancing its position as a leader in safeguarding human rights.

Human rights are the fundamental rights, freedoms, and standards of treatment to which all people are entitled. Intel’s Global Human Rights Principles, adopted in 2009, formalize our commitment to respecting human rights; embody common principles laid out in multiple frameworks, including the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights; and apply to all employees and contingent workers, including those in our subsidiaries.

We are consistently maintaining and improving our systems and processes to avoid complicity in human rights violations related to our own operations, supply chain, and products. We also apply our technology to support the advancement of human rights. Promising new technologies such as AI, autonomous driving, virtual reality, and 5G also come with the potential for these technologies to infringe on human rights. In response, we formed an AI Ethics and Human Rights team and brought together leading technology companies to improve learning about potential human rights risks related to emerging technologies. Our work continues.
