Our annual Corporate Social Responsibility report reflects how Cisco technology and people are accelerating global problem solving in ways that have never been attempted before. From solving customers’ business challenges to tackling the toughest social and environmental issues of our time, we are helping to make the impossible possible.

Between barriers and breakthroughs, there is a bridge

As we continue to connect everything, everywhere, Cisco is building bridges that transform global challenges into infinite possibilities.

The bridge to 1 billion

"At our core, we have always been about solving problems, connecting people, and striving for positive outcomes."

Tae Yoo, Senior Vice President, Corporate Affairs and CSR

How we prioritize

We aim to create opportunity for people, empower communities, and protect the planet.

CSR business process

Our individual business functions set CSR goals, implement plans, and measure performance. To identify and evaluate issues of concern or opportunities, we conduct an annual CSR materiality assessment. This includes stakeholder engagement on key issues, stakeholder inquiries, benchmarking, industry standards, and policy and regulatory developments. Results inform our annual CSR planning process and are used to prioritize resources and investments.
