Cisco can help transportation organizations in their sustainability journey. We offer specific industry use cases including roadway infrastructure and intersections, EV charging infrastructure, traffic management operations, workforce operations, and smart facilities that can support the decarbonization of the transportation industry at scale.
In our circular journey, Cisco is evolving to a regenerative, circular model in which we reduce the resources we consume and the waste we generate. We have set a goal for 100% of new Cisco products and packaging to incorporate Circular Design Principles by our fiscal year 2025. Focus areas include materials use, standardization and modularization, packaging and accessories, smart energy consumption and design for disassembly, reuse, and repair. Further, Cisco has had programs in place for more than two decades to facilitate product returns for reuse and recycling, offer comprehensive service and repair, and remanufacture used equipment for sale through Cisco Refresh.
We have developed strategic alliances with industry partners that enable us to be ‘better together’ and offer integrated solutions that can support progress towards sustainability goals. A notable example is our partnership with Schneider Electric who won the first-place award for Cisco’s Partner Sustainability Challenge. Through this key partnership we are developing innovative EV infrastructure and next generation smart buildings technologies.
Cisco also offers a variety of funding options to help accelerate sustainability projects for transportation organizations, such as Country Digital Acceleration, Industry Lighthouse Funding, Cisco Green Pay, Global Infrastructure Fund, and Cisco As-A-Service.
Sustainable transportation can play a key role in the transition to a low-carbon economy. Forward-thinking transportation organizations are analyzing their impact, accelerating technologies that support electrification, autonomous vehicles, and mobility as a service, and setting GHG emissions reduction goals. Cisco has a purpose to Power an Inclusive Future for All. We can assist the transportation industry with solutions that support their sustainability journey and goals.
