study that shows the financial outperformance of the Global 100
companies relative to the performance of the MSCI World Index.
Following Dr. Kiernan, Intel Chairman, Dr. Craig Barrett will discuss
Intel's approach to Corporate Responsibility and the company's
commitment to socially and environmentally responsible business
practices that translate into sustainable competitive advantage.
