Cisco is honored to be on the Global 100 list of the worlds’ most sustainable companies as announced today at the World Economic Forum in Davos by Corporate Knights, a Toronto, Canada-based media and investment research company.
Being recognized by Corporate Knights as a company that takes sustainability very seriously is a nice reflection of the values that our 66,000 global employees hold. 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.”
Commenting on this year’s Global 100, Toby Heaps, Corporate Knights CEO, remarked, “the Global 100 are leading a resource productivity revolution, transforming waste into treasure and doing more with less. They are steering our civilization away from ecological overshoot and back to a place of balance with our planet.”

Today, we released our sixth annual corporate social responsibility (CSR) report. We are pleased to provide information about the progress we have made, and the work we still have in front of us, in the areas of employee engagement, the environment, corporate governance and ethics, social investments and value chain.
Cisco’s approach to CSR is like other areas of the business where we consider the long term impact that we can have versus taking a purely transactional view. We encourage you to read more about Cisco’s CSR efforts and tell us what you think.
