Mar 6, 2009

DALLAS (March 6, 2009) – Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) was named among the best corporate citizens today by Corporate Responsibility Officer (CRO) Magazine, ranking 59th on the magazine's 10th annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens List®. This is the seventh time in nine years that TI has been included on the list.

CRO's 100 Best Corporate Citizens List® is the only such list based on 100 percent publicly-available information and ranks Russell 1000® companies on their performance in seven key areas: environment, climate change, human rights, philanthropy, employee relations, financial and governance.

"TI is committed to responsible business practices that we believe are integral to our long-term success," said Trisha Cunningham, worldwide corporate citizenship director. "Ever since TI's founders established our core values more than 75 years ago, we have been working to build a better future for our employees, customers and the communities where we operate. It's an honor for those efforts to be acknowledged."

First published in 2000 by Business Ethics Magazine, the 100 Best Corporate Citizens List® published today by CRO Magazine is the most-recognized Corporate Responsibility ranking of Russell 1000® companies. The list is compiled for CRO Magazine by Portland, Maine-based IW Financial, a leading provider of SRI rankings to institutional investors. Since the methodology for developing the list is based solely on publicly-available data, it puts a premium on companies with high levels of public disclosure and transparency.

TI provides a detailed annual report of its corporate citizenship activities on the company's website at www.ti.com/csr

The complete 100 Best Corporate Citizens List® will be published on www.TheCRO.com.
