Statement of Chuck Robbins, Chairman & CEO of Cisco Systems, Inc., on Climate Change & President Biden’s Infrastructure Proposal
The Cisco Foundation is proud to commit $100 million over the next 10 years to combat climate change. Corporations, governments and individuals all have a role to play in taking bold climate action, and this commitment is part of Cisco’s purpose to power an inclusive future for all and cultivate a healthier planet for generations to come.
Technology is undoubtedly instrumental in addressing the climate crisis and generating green jobs, and broadband connectivity remains a fundamental component of infrastructure necessary for environmentally friendly economic growth. This is why Cisco believes President Biden’s proposal to ensure high-quality, affordable broadband connectivity for all Americans — no matter who they are or where they live — will be key to fostering prosperous and sustainable communities.
As Washington engages in dialogue about how to strengthen America’s infrastructure and environment while balancing US competitiveness, Cisco is hopeful that broadband expansion will prevail as a common denominator that can power a more inclusive and sustainable future for all.
