One year ago, we announced goals to achieve 100 percent renewable energy, water neutrality and zero waste at Cisco’s campus in Research Triangle Park (RTP), North Carolina. RTP is a growing campus in a regional innovation hub, surrounded by leading research universities and clean technology ventures.

Here’s what we’ve been doing in the last fiscal year (FY19) to make progress toward these goals:

Learning Together: Cisco’s Sales Associate Program Inspires the Future

What do 25 recent college graduates and 18 preschoolers have in common? You might think, “Not a lot” – but you’d be wrong.

We began this journey together: it was their first month of Pre-K, and it was our first job after graduation. We were all wide-eyed and full of hope for what was to come! Little did we know the impact that we would have on one another’s lives over the next year.

What’s Old Is New: Why Cisco Wants Its Products Back

Blog

This post was written by guest blogger Abbey Burns, Circular Economy Program Manager at Cisco.

Cisco’s products power networks and shape the way we live, work, play, and learn. However, they also shape the world in many other ways.

We aim for all of our resources to follow a circular model – where we reduce our consumption of natural resources and design waste out of our value cycle, enabling products and packaging to be used and reused longer.

These celebrations are also great opportunities to invite others to join in on the festivities and learn more about one another.

Blog

There’s no better place to talk about bridging the gap to economic vitality in Latin America than in Miami, where the 6th annual eMerge Americas conference recently took place. eMerge brings together business and government leaders who are transforming industries, countries, and lives with innovative digital technology.

eMerge organizers purposefully located the conference in Miami, the “tech hub of the Americas,” because of its position as a cultural and commercial bridge between Latin America and the United States.

Help Solve Homelessness at Cisco Live US 2019

Blog

In one week we’ll be together at Cisco Live, in person or virtually, fueling our personal and professional growth through keynotes, events, and training focused on Cisco products, solutions, and services. This year’s event continues to celebrate what we can all make possible in this world with vision, focus, effort and technology.

But imagine for one moment your life with a different story. One that starts and ends each day in a car, on the streets, or in a homeless shelter. Impossible, right? Think again.
