Global Citizenship
Letter from our CEOSocial Impact of the GPUFY11 Citizenship Report

About This Report

This, the NVIDIA 2011 Global Citizenship Report, covers NVIDIA Corporation’s economic, social, and environmental performance for our fiscal year ended January 30, 2011. We report our performance annually via our website. Our first global citizenship report, published in the summer of 2010, can be found here.

To increase community awareness and identify new projects for funding, we implemented an RFP process in 2010. This has enabled schools and community organizations to reach out to us and ask to be considered as a potential recipient.

The report includes consolidated economic, financial, and employment information for our global operations. The environmental information contained in this report covers only our US operations. We have begun tracking the performance of some environmental initiatives in international offices, and with the 2011 implementation of a carbon tracking and energy management system, will be able to better analyze energy data from our international operations.

We determined the content for this report based on conversations among management and with customers, suppliers, and employees, and in consultation with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G3 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines (GRI G3).

For this report we have self-declared a GRI application level of C. The GRI index containing standard disclosures can be found here.

We are committed to improving our performance and, accordingly, expect to provide more information on our performance while also increasing the transparency and completeness of our reporting over time.

We welcome your feedback on this report and our performance. Please send your comments and suggestions to or write to us at:

We wish to caution you that these statements are only predictions not guarantees of future results and that actual events may differ materially.

Therefore, our actual results could differ materially and adversely from those expressed in any forward-looking statement as a result of various factors. Our Annual Report on Form 10-K, subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, Current Reports on Form 8-K, and other filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission discuss some of the important risk factors that could contribute to such differences or otherwise affect our business, results of operations and financial condition.
