Cisco's CSR Commitment
We take our expertise--in building networks, partnerships, and a successful business--and use it to multiply social impact around the world. We call this Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Our commitment begins with our employees and extends to the dollars, time, and technology we give as a company to build and support programs in more than 150 countries.
Because we approach CSR the same way we approach our business, we build more impactful, more sustainable programs that also support our company goals.
