back to article Semiconductor Climate Consortium aims to cut chipmaking carbon emissions

A newly created semiconductor industry body is attending the COP27 climate conference this week to talk about members’ aims to hit net zero emissions by 2050 – and hopefully clean up the chip industry's act. The Semiconductor Climate Consortium (SCC) was formed at the start of November and comprises more than 60 founding …

    Humanity's appetite for processors

    seems to be ever-increasing (and perhaps that's the real problem), so :

    - we should make them in the most environmental way possible - from beginning to end. And yes, that's a complex problem - and probably a political one as much as an industry one - but it's not insurmountable, surely? And

    - we ought to be making processors that are as efficient at processing as possible (PPA).

    I hope this does amount to more than green-washing, and is more than a cheap way of appearing to be concerned about the environment (without actually having to do much about the resources being used, and the mess being made).
