IDM 2.0 Investments
As part of our IDM 2.0 strategy, in 2022, we broke ground on two new leading-edge chip factories in Ohio, initially announcing plans to invest more than $20.0 billion to establish the first advanced semiconductor campus in the “Silicon Heartland.” We also announced our plans to invest up to €80.0 billion in the European Union over the next decade across the semiconductor value chain—from R&D to manufacturing to state-of-the-art packaging technologies.
US CHIPS and Science Act
In August 2022, US President Joe Biden signed into law the “US CHIPS and Science Act,” what we consider the most significant industrial policy legislation since World War II. The act provides $52.7 billion for American semiconductor, research, development, manufacturing, and workforce development, as well as a 25% investment tax credit for capital expenses for manufacturing semiconductors and related equipment.
Our RISE strategy outlines our approach to corporate responsibility, as well as the measurable goals we’ve set for ourselves. Through RISE, we aim to harness the breadth and scale of our reach to have a positive effect on business, society, and the planet.
AI for a Better Future

We work to follow structured, rigorous, multidisciplinary processes to advance AI technology responsibly from development to deployment.
$2.2 Billion Spending with Diverse-Owned Suppliers
