Improving access to healthcare in rural parts of the world. Developing technologies that can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Fostering diversity and ethical standards throughout our business and supply chain. These are some of the ways we are combining human collaboration and network technology to improve lives, build communities, and preserve the environment – we call it impact multiplied.

Cisco’s CSR strategy is to use our expertise, technology, and partnerships for social, environmental, and business impact.

We report using a framework of five core pillars: Governance and Ethics, Supply Chain, Our People, Society, and Environment. This report covers our approach, our objectives, our progress, and our challenges around each of these pillars:

  • Governance and Ethics: We believe that ethical conduct and good governance are critical to making us a stronger, more resilient company. 
  • Supply Chain: The manufacturing of our products is entirely outsourced. We work closely with our 600-plus suppliers to improve sustainability performance throughout the supply chain. 
  • Our People: We share a vision of a more connected world through what we call “The Internet of Everything.” We rely on our talented people to achieve this vision and we respect, recognize, and reward them with this vision in mind. 
  • Society: We use our expertise, technology, partnerships, and financial resources to help build thriving communities that improve people’s lives and support our business. 
  • Environment: Cisco products that improve living standards, reduce resource waste, and save energy create new value for our customers through technology.
