About Corporate Social Responsibility at Cisco
It's easy to look at the world's challenges and feel that they are too big, and we are too small to solve them. But we believe that you are more powerful than you have ever been, for one simple reason: the combined power of human and technology networks.
By combining the power of human and technology networks, Cisco multiplies impact and helps accomplish extraordinary things, even under the most difficult circumstances.
Cisco's Focus Areas for Corporate Social Responsibility
- Governance and Ethics
Our commitment to strong governance leads us to promote ethical practices at every level of our business.
- Supply Chain
We work with suppliers to maintain high standards for ethics, labor rights, health, safety, and the environment.
- Our People
We foster a work environment and culture that help our employees thrive.
We use networks to help communities around the world thrive and to help innovators solve social problems.
We use our technologies to run our company sustainably--and help our customers do the same.
We take our expertise--in building networks, partnerships, and a successful business--and use it to multiply social impact around the world. We call this Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Our commitment begins with our employees and extends to the dollars, time, and technology we give as a company to build and support programs in more than 150 countries.
Because we approach CSR the same way we approach our business, we build more impactful, more sustainable programs that also support our company goals.
What Do You Add to the Equation?
These are the issues we believe in and work on every day. What is yourexpertise, your passion, your innovation? How can you build human networks that help you make an impact? And how can technology help multiply that impact?
We have seen this formula come to life around the world as human and technology networks combine to do good: you + networks = impact multiplied.
Be part of the equation.
