VMware India recently partnered with India's first all-electric cab service – Lithium Cabs to provide employees with green transportation in order to reduce carbon footprints while transporting employees in the city of Bangalore. The transition from diesel fleet cars to electric cars for daily employee pick and drop helps overcome challenges such as fuel cost, battery life, safety, battery charging infra and most importantly is an environment friendly cab service. By using eco-friendly cars, VMware India saves 440 tonnes on carbon dioxide in just one year and reduces pollution on the road.
An IDC report, sponsored by VMware, shows how virtualisation products, namely VMware’s products, reduce carbon emissions. The report also evaluated the CO2 emissions that were avoided because of server virtualisation as well as consolidation. The results showed that this reduction in power consumption and CO2 emissions could be directly attributed to the use of virtualisation and VMware products around the world.

Total direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions from purchased energy at our pulp and paper mills have been reduced by 15 percent since 2010, meeting our 2020 target ahead of schedule. These reductions have primarily been realized by: fuel switching from coal to less carbon-intensive natural gas, increasing on-site cogeneration of electricity and reducing pulp and paper production in alignment with market demand.
