Intel Corp. is responsible for positive Humankind Value. Notable sources of positive value are Economic Value ($21.7 B), Internet Search ($20.0 B), and Medical Services ($4.5 B). The modern technology sector includes companies providing free services that users find valuable. In our current world, access to internet search, maps, messaging, and digital media are essentially positive byproducts. This represents a lot of value beyond profit. Intel produces economic value by offering to consumers goods and services that they value, paying employees for their labor in producing these goods and services, and providing value for shareholders. The value associated with Medical Services contains our estimation of 92,754.3 additional years lived by people worldwide. The Humankind Value of this company can improve with reductions in Greenhouse Gases (-$2.6 B) and Workplace Injuries (-$1.6 B). Economic Value and Workplace Injuries are attached to this company as a result of its direct business activities. Internet Search, Medical Services, and Greenhouse Gases are mostly or entirely a result of supply-chain relationships. While this company has a positive Humankind Value when studied in isolation, consideration of supply chain interactions pushes its Humankind Value higher.
