At Cisco, we believe environmental sustainability is critical for economies and for all global citizens. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions, preserving biodiversity and natural resources, and designing our products to minimize waste. These important actions are factored into every aspect of our business.
We look for opportunities to minimize Cisco’s impact on the environment in every corner of our business and our supply chain. And we seek ways technology can reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. Here is what we made possible in FY19:
49% reduction in Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions (82% of FY22 goal achieved)
83% of energy came from renewable sources (98% of FY22 goal achieved)
1M metric tonnes of supply chain greenhouse gas emissions avoided (115% of FY20 goal achieved)
Three Cisco experts explain how our Product Takeback and Reuse program works and how it helps customers.
Our goal is to achieve 100 percent renewable energy, water neutrality, and zero waste at Cisco's campus in Research Triangle Park (RTP), North Carolina.
The circular economy is a natural extension of Cisco’s own business transformation. Learn more about our efforts.
Our goal is to work collaboratively with suppliers to source minerals consistent with our values which include environmental responsibility.
Energy-reduction projects at our facilities save energy, cut costs, and increase comfort.
In celebration of Earth Day, we spoke to three Cisco experts about how our teams and individuals are driving Cisco’s leadership.
Cisco is #2 on Barron's 100 Most Sustainable Companies ranking, placing as the top tech company for the second straight year.
To reduce our own greenhouse gas emissions, we're aggressively increasing our use of renewable energy. In our last fiscal year, it accounted for 80 percent of our electricity use worldwide. By 2020, we plan to eliminate one million tons of greenhouse gases from our supply chain.
Our products help our customers reduce their carbon footprints, too--from the data center to the desktop. People use our collaboration solutions to work remotely, which translates to less fuel burned on the ground and in the air. And our energy-efficient cloud solutions help businesses reduce their IT energy needs.
Cisco's wildlife conservation program began as an effort to save rhinos. It’s since evolved into Cisco Open Conservation, including new partners, geographies, species, and a new Cisco team: Sustainable Impact. We’re using innovative technology to benefit life on land, under water, and in the air.Learn more >
We embed sustainability in our supply chain business processes to drive impactful change.
This program demonstrates our commitment to minimizing our environmental impact and helps you do the same.
