We understand that sustainable, transformational growth is at the heart of the Brazilian government’s economic development plan, as the country aims to become the fifth largest economy by 2016. Read in English (PDF)


In 2012, Rio+20 raised the profile of environmental issues within Brazil, and highlighted biodiversity and water as emerging challenges. The Planetary Skin Institute, which addresses issues of resource scarcity, is a key initiative in Brazil that Cisco has been involved with from the start.

Brazilians believe in the power of technology. They represent the world’s fifth–largest number of Internet users, according to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). As part of our Governance and Ethics efforts, we are working to provide a secure foundation of data protection and privacy for the Brazilian people to expand their ICT capabilities.

In Brazil, Cisco’s equation You + Networks = ImpactX is alive and well. Our integrated business and CSR strategy helps guide us as we aim to become a trusted partner with key institutions, including the Brazilian government, and other stakeholders in Brazil’s pursuit of long–term, sustainable development.

Presidente da Cisco do Brasil
