Cisco’s Circular Advantage
Our Circular Economy initiatives are focused in five major areas:
Circular Operations: Reduce or provide renewable and recovered inputs in our operations, across our value stream.
Circular Design: Design for hardware circularity, repair and reuse, and use recycled and ‘closed loop’ material inputs.
In October 2018, we announced a new goal to cut the use of virgin plastic by 20% absolute by 2025 (2018 baseline).
Circular Consumption: Cycle refurb product for multiple uses, leverage partners and deploy as-a-service models.
Circular Solutions: Shape and pioneer solutions and services to enable CE value creation for customers.
Ecosystem Leadership: Advance the circular economy through industry innovation, collaboration and public policy.
The circular economy is about how you make sustainable thinking a business imperative. It’s about how you make businesses survive and thrive over the coming decades.
