Cisco has announced that it is committing to reaching net zero for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across all scopes by 2040, 10 years ahead of when climate scientists say the planet must reach net zero to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. Cisco’s net zero goal will be supported by ambitious near-term targets, including to reach net zero for global Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025.
Other near-term targets will cover the company’s most-material Scope 3 categories, such as use of sold products and supply chain emissions and will be public as they are finalised later in 2021. The new greenhouse gas reduction goals will follow the latest climate science and Cisco will report progress on these targets in its annual Corporate Social Responsibility Impact Report.
This announcement marks a major milestone in Cisco’s journey to Power an Inclusive Future for All. Cisco’s efforts to advance this purpose will encompass investments and initiatives related to closing the digital divide, advancing social justice, building partner ecosystems of impact and setting and achieving ambitious sustainability goals like net zero commitment.Click below to share this article
