Uncover our dedication to creating superior products, fostering community involvement and reducing waste.

Product excellence

Our products are smart, durable and continuously improved to last longer than ever.

  • TI calculators are a reliable, one-time investment built to last from middle grades to high school, college and beyond.
  • Our technology is designed to endure the wear and tear of math and science classrooms for long-term use.
  • TI graphing calculators are drop-resistant and backpack-friendly, with an average lifespan of 6 years.
  • Our calculators and accessories undergo extensive testing to meet and exceed all relevant safety and regulatory requirements.

Minimizing waste

We promote corporate-wide initiatives to conserve natural resources and be environmentally conscious.

  • Our products prioritize energy-efficient designs, extending battery life and reducing waste. In fact, the original battery for TI scientific calculators will last up to 7 years.*
  • Multiple TI graphing calculators feature rechargeable batteries that last up to one month on a single charge, eliminating the need for disposable batteries.
  • We offer battery-free technology, such as the TI-Innovator™ Hub, to reduce waste and support eco-friendly classrooms.
  • Our packaging design minimizes the use of plastic, includes digital manuals instead of paper, and optimizes transport for lower carbon emissions. In fact, changes to product packaging designs have reduced the size of shipping crates by 60 percent.
  • Our recycling program ensures customers have a mindful method of disposing of calculators they wish to retire.

Community engagement

We take great pride in being a good corporate citizen that we would want as a neighbor and are building stronger communities by supporting local schools through active community engagement.

  • Participation in the Good360 donation program aids schools affected by natural disasters.
  • We encourage female involvement in STEM, such as the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas “Coding for Good” Badge program, to promote leadership and provide career guidance.
  • Earth Day is celebrated annually through employee events, tree planting and sustainability awareness.
  • TI employees serve on non-profit boards and the company donated nearly $10 million in technology to low-income schools in 2019.
  • TI Foundation has invested more than $71 million in STEM education since 2010.
