CSR Awards: Corporation with more than 25,000 employees


Winner: Sprint

Corporation with more than 25,000 employees_SprintSprint’s commitment to CSR starts at the top, with CEO Dan Hesse’s personal passion for “doing the right thing”—which he believes is not only good for the planet and its people, but also a long-term strategy for business success.

One example is Sprint’s long-standing sustainable product development program, which includes robust environmental specifications applicable across Sprint’s device portfolio and enforceable through the Sprint Environmental Scorecard process. The scorecard feeds into both manufacturers’ quarterly evaluation and Sprint’s Electronic Stewardship Policy, where the company has committed to have 70% of its wireless devices that launch annually meet its standards.

In addition, Sprint has already achieved 94% of its industry-leading goal to absolutely reduce emissions by 20% by 2017 and remains the only U.S. carrier to have an absolute reduction goal that includes both Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions.

Sprint also leads the U.S. telecommunications industry in reporting Scope 3 emissions. Sprint reported eight of 12 relevant categories last year, more than four times more than any other carrier, and received assurance on three: emissions from business travel, employee commuting and product use. Sprint has led the industry in this area thanks in part to guidance from partners, including Ceres, NRDC and the World Wildlife Fund (Sprint is one of just 30 companies accepted into WWF’s elite Climate Savers Program).
