Answering the call to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees C above pre-industrial levels, Cisco pledges to accelerate companywide strategies to greatly reduce carbon emissions across its value chain

Cisco announced that it is committing to reaching net zero for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across all scopes by 2040, 10 years ahead of when climate scientists say the planet must reach net zero to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.
