Cisco Named Most Environmentally Responsible IT Company


â–¶ Cool CSR: Cisco took the No. 1 slot on the Greenpeace Cool IT Leaderboard, which ranks the most environmentally responsible IT companies. Cisco received 70 out of 100 possible points, while Ericsson received 57 points and Fujitsu 52 points. Greenpeace praised Cisco for “making IT climate solutions an increasingly core part of its business.” Other Leaderboard finding include:

• Fujitsu was particularly praised for a 12-prong proposal it made to the Japanese government in support of reducing greenhouse gas emissions as a country. The company showed strong leadership in its proposal “while the rest of the Japanese IT companies remained silent,” said Greenpeace.

Google, which ranked fourth with 47 points, was praised for publicly opposing Prop. 23, a proposition to suspend the law already in place that mandates emissions reductions in California. Google received the highest rating when it came to environmental advocacy with 30 points, the most any company could achieve.

• Companies that did not fare as well with Greenpeace include: IBM (46 points), Intel (31 points) and Microsoft (29 points). Greenpeace deducted points from their ratings because the three companies lobbied against a European Union-proposed plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2020. PRN
