Through various environmental programs and initiatives spanning its value chain, AMD sets ambitious goals with the Design Award to foster a world where art can flourish, embracing sustainable and energy-efficient computing.
This year’s AMD Design Award, the third of its kind, builds on the themes of previous years, which explored human evolution and the concept of eco-cities. In 2023, the focus shifts to pivotal environmental concerns, emphasising ecology and sustainable technological development. The emphasis on renewable energy sources is driven by the growing global demand for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adopting smarter energy consumption practices.
