Cisco systems



Cisco is pleased to announce a new goal to improve large rack-mounted-equipment system power efficiency—as measured from the input power from the facility to the board-mounted ASICs, memory and other chip devices—from 77% to 87% by 2022 (FY2016 baseline)



Cisco's third, five-year goal commits to reduce total Cisco Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions worldwide by 60% absolute by FY2022 (FY2007 baseline).  As of FY2017, we have reduced our Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions worldwide by more than 40% absolute (FY2007 baseline). We have also committed to use electricity generated from renewable sources for at least 85% of our global electricity by FY2022.  As of FY2017, we used renewable sources for 80% of our global electricity consumption.



We are reducing the demand for carbon-intensive raw materials from oil and mineral extraction through our circular economy initiative.

We are reporting annually on the progress of our supply base—including final assembly partners, component suppliers, transportation providers and recycling companies—to implement the following five-step action plan:

1.  Report to CDP annually

2.  Make the CDP response publicly available

3.  Provide external assurance of their GHG emissions data collection, analysis and reporting

4.  Publicly announce a GHG emissions reduction goal

5.  Apply Cisco's five-step roadmap to their own suppliers

As of FY2017 more than 90% of our final assembly, transportation and recycling vendors, and almost 90% of our component suppliers—as measured by spend—report to CDP.  We have also committed to avoid 1 million metric tonne cumulative of supply chain GHG emissions by FY2020 (FY2012 baseline). As of the end of FY2017, we have avoided 712,000 metric tonne CO2e.
