An inclusive future takes everyone, including future generations, into account.
At Cisco, we believe in powering an inclusive future for all by bringing communities together and creating meaningful change for everyone, including our planet. By leveraging our innovations to inspire Cisco employees, partners, and customers, we can help create a more sustainable and positive impact across the globe.
We have set a science-based target to reach net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across our value chain by 2040. This means we are committed to deep GHG reductions across our operations, supply chain, and product use.
Cisco is putting people, technology, and resources toward Powering an Inclusive Future for All, where everyone has the opportunity to thrive. Visit our Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Reporting Hub.
