Cisco, the worldwide leader in networking that transforms how people connect, communicate and collaborate, continues its more than 25-year commitment to technology innovation, industry leadership and corporate social responsibility. Cisco strives to be a good corporate citizen by focusing on four key areas: how it treats employees; its impact on the environment; the social investments it makes; and how it governs itself. The company's culture is driven by high standards of business integrity and by giving back using Cisco's resources and the power of the Internet for positive and sustainable social and economic impact. Through corporate social responsibility initiatives that rely on strong public-private partnerships, Cisco is doing its part to build stronger, more productive global communities. Healthy, self-sustaining communities arise when every individual has the means to live, the opportunity to learn and the chance to share those gifts with others. All of these elements are essential to an enduring cycle of social development, economic growth and global stability.
