Sustainable Tech: 5 IT Giants Lowering Their Carbon Footprint
From slashing carbon emissions to renewable energy investments and responsible water usage, here’s what five IT leaders are doing right now to combat climate change.
Cisco To Cut Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Cisco Systems in September pledged it would reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040, including its own operations, product use, and supply chain. In the meantime, the tech giant said to expect more near-term emissions-reduction targets for its most material emissions.
San Jose, Calif.-based Cisco is also investing millions through its Country Digital Acceleration (CDA) program to help its partners and end customers lower their own carbon footprints and meet sustainability goals. The CDA program is rolling out a Sustainability Partner Innovation Challenge that will challenge Cisco’s partner ecosystem to develop proofs of concept aimed at solving the sustainability issues, according to Cisco.
