This week, Cisco was again included in the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations – a select group of the world’s most sustainable large-cap companies based on 12 indicators, including energy, innovation, corporate governance issues, and diversity.
Cisco was #1 in the IT category and 11th overall, up from 20th last year. The Global 100 were chosen from a starting universe of more than 4000 companies worldwide.
In its tenth year, the Global 100 has come to be a widely followed analysis of corporate sustainability. Companies named to the Global 100 are the top overall sustainability performers in their respective industrial sectors.
The index is compiled by Corporate Knights, a Toronto-based media and investment advisory company, and announced each year during the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland.

We certainly want to be a successful company and a measure of that success includes operating in a sustainable and responsible manner. Cisco strongly believes in creating shared value for the communities in which we operate as well as our business.
Tae Yoo, Cisco’s Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs commented, “We are very proud of our inclusion on the Global 100 list. Cisco is deeply committed to corporate social responsibility and utilizing the power of people and technology networks to multiply our impact on society, the environment and our business.”
