Leading by Example on Energy Reduction
Cisco’s TelePresence product is helping organizations around the world reduce their carbon footprints. A perfect example is the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), which just held its annual global launch through video conferencing for the first time ever.
Where once executives and speakers would have flown in from far-flung locations around the globe to attend the meeting, people from nine locations on four continents gathered at a virtual conference table to discuss the challenging environmental problems facing our planet.
The CDP works with the largest corporations in the world, encouraging them to take action to halt climate change. Using TelePresence to reduce its own environmental impact is a no-brainer.
Likewise, Cisco is “walking the talk” when it comes to energy reduction. In CDP’s report on corporate carbon disclosure, Cisco had the top score in the Information Technology field. Cisco has been #1 or 2 for the past three years.
Not only is Cisco providing the tools to enable its customers to use less energy, but it is making products that are more energy and resource-efficient in their design, manufacture, use, and end-of-life.
