Juniper Networks has published its first annual Corporate Citizenship and Sustainability Report, titled “The New Network — Changing the World,” detailing the company’s efforts around green IT, employee and community engagement and sustainable business operations across the globe.
“With continued resource depletion and the rising of greenhouse gas emissions, we can drive improved economics and quality of life by using resources more productively,” said Mark Bauhaus, executive vice president and general manager, Service Layer Technologies Business Group and leader of the CSR Executive Council at Juniper Networks. “Sustainable and efficient operations are critical to the success of businesses today. With the amount of information available anytime and anywhere, we can now ensure that economic and social opportunities are within everyone’s reach. Advances in the network will continue to contribute to a more environmentally responsible world, and Juniper Networks will be at the forefront for a more sustainable environment.”
Successful businesses care not only about driving profitability, but making sure they operate in a socially responsible way, said Brad Minnis, director of environmental health and safety at Juniper Networks.
“Juniper’s mission of driving innovation in a global economy is fueled by how we operate our business in supporting responsible choices to enable a sustainable future,” he said. “We know there is more work to do and we are committed to this for the long term.”
Some of the company’s green IT achievements include reducing the number of physical servers; participating in the Carbon Disclosure Project reporting on Scope 1-3 emissions; and adopting a simplified data center network design that requires fewer devices and interconnections.
